President Yoon attends ceremony commemorating the 20th anniversary of the opening of high-speed rail

President Yoon attended the ceremony commemorating the 20th anniversary of the opening of the high-speed railway held at the headquarters of the Korea Railroad Corporation in Daejeon on April 1 and named the unveiled new KTX “Cheongryong.” KTX-Cheongryong is the fastest high-speed train in Korea and is the first 300km/h distributed power train designed and manufactured with domestic technology. Compared to the existing KTX-Sancheon or Sancheon II, the cabin and seating space are wider, increasing the convenience of railway users, and the acceleration and deceleration performance is also excellent, making it optimized for the Korean terrain with short intervals between stations. When Korea first introduced French high-speed trains in 1994, French researchers predicted that it would be impossible to domestically produce Korean high-speed trains. Contrary to their predictions, Korea produced the KTX-Sancheon in 2008, creating the miracle of becoming the fourth country in the world to develop and commercialize a high-speed train.

KTX-Cheongryong will be deployed on the Gyeongbu Line and Honam Line starting in May. By shortening the travel time by up to 30 minutes and minimizing the number of stops to 1-2, you can arrive from Seoul to Busan in 2 hours and 10 minutes, and from Yongsan to Gwangju in 1 hour and 30 minutes. It will run on the Gyeongbu Line, 4 times a day, and on the Honam Line, 2 times a day. President Yoon promised to expand the high-speed rail network nationwide and realize a two-hour living area wherever on the mainland.

 

Yoon plays a daily special lecturer at Neulbom School

On March 29, President Yoon visited Ain Elementary School in Hwaseong-si, Gyeonggi-do and became a one-day special lecturer for Neulbom School's customized program for first-year students. He watched the Nuri launch video with the children and read picture books about space and rockets. He flew a model of the Nuri rocket with the children and explained to them the principles of rocket propulsion in an easy-to-understand manner.

He then discussed with the principal, staff, teachers, and instructors the experience of operating Neulbom School over the past four weeks and good ideas. Participants in the meeting said that through Neulbom School, children can access high-quality programs in various fields such as physical education, culture, and art, and that the scope of activities has expanded alongside job opportunities.
