With almost 200 guests in attendance, including Dr. Hong-Koo Lee, ASKC's Honorary Chairman and former Republic of Korea's Prime Minister; Dong Bin Shin, Co-Chairman of AKSC and Lotte Group's Vice Chairman; and Dr. Kyongsoo Lho, ASKC's co-chairman and Professor of International Politics at Seoul National University, ASKC hosted their year-end holiday cocktail reception. In the preceding year ASKC, in cooperation with the Seoul Global Center, established a scholarship fund for the children of multiethnic families, and the Seoul Foreign Correspondents Club made a generous contribution towards that fund. Steven Herman, Seoul Bureau Chief of the Voice of America and representative of the Seoul Foreign Correspondents Club, and Alan Timblick, the Head of the Seoul Global Center, were on hand to present six elementary school children with prizes and gift certificates from various ASKC corporate contributors. Continuing with Asia Society Korea Center's initiative to aid multiethnic children in Korea, Yvonne Kim, Executive Director of the Asia Society Korea Center, presented the Multicultural Team of the Seoul Global Center with 2000 books donated by the Taipei Mission in Korea, the Royal Thai Embassy, the Ministry of Justice, Yulchon Law Firm, the Lotte Scholarship Foundation, Injicom, Samjong KPMG, and other private donors for ASKC's "Got Books?" campaign. The evening closed with a special performance by Drumcat, an all-female percussion group based in Seoul.
