October 3 is a national holiday in Korea, Gaecheonjeol (개천절). known as National Foundation Day in English. On this date, Koreans celebrate the founding of the Korean nation with the formation of the first Korean state of Gojoseon 4,348 years ago in 2333 BC and their 5,000 years of Korean culture.

The runner-up (“…and if for any reason the winner cannot fulfill its duty, the the first runner-up will….”) occurs at the 30 second mark: “On upside-down world maps, Korea looks powerful as it emerges from the continent and extends into the Pacific Ocean.”
Happy National Foundation Day!
Have a safe and good Chusok.

I wish all a day to remember.
