"THE HOTEL DE JONG"
By Dana Roskey
'The Hotel de Jong' is a drama based on the story of Korean hero Yi Jun. In 1907, Japan is moving to make Korea a protectorate. The Korean Emperor sends a secret mission to the 1907 Hague Peace Conference, headed by diplomat and lawyer Yi Jun. Will the mission be a success? Will anyone at the conference listen?
The Drama Hotel de Jong tells the story of one of the three emissaries, Yi Jun and shows his increasing desperation in his hotel room in Wagenstraat 124 in The Hague when it became clear that the mission was facing strong oppositions. In 1995, after extensive renovations, the former “Hotel de Jong” became the Yi Jun Peace Museum, dedicated to Yi Jun’s story and that of Korea's history with impressive exhibits.
