On this day, President Kyeung-Seuk Ryu said in his speech, “I am very happy to be able to visit Sunwon Construction. If Sunwon Construction, which contains the meaning of ‘the construction of a good-hearted ideal world,’ succeeds and develops, I think that there will be no trouble in integrating the ideals of Reverend Sun Myung Moon and Dr. Hak Ja Han into the society of Korea. I met Dr. Hak Ja Han today, and reported my plans of visiting our affiliates.” He emphasized the importance surrounding Sunwon Construction’s tour being his first tour, and added special significance to this tour by saying, “Because a special parish has been newly established, there has to be certain cultures that the Tongil Group has, especially those unlike other organizations or companies. I think that the staff of Sunwon Construction needs to internally accept these unique cultures and make them their own.
Finally, President Kyeung-Seuk Ryu emphasized that the Family Federation and the Tongil Foundation were one, not two, by saying, “I hope that the Family Federation could be looked into a little more deeply. The Family Federation is the center of all providential institutions and companies. If you look at the human body, there are 12 major blood vessels, and this is the same form that we are in today. So, just as how all 12 blood vessels need to flow smoothly for people to be healthy, I hope that everyone here can deeply look into and show interest in certain activities, so that the Family Federation can flow smoothly as well.” The entire schedule then came to an end with the benediction for the eternal development of Sunwon Construction.
On the same day at 3 PM, the ‘President Kyeung-Seuk Ryu Segye Times Visit’ event took place at the Segye Times Uni-Hall, as the second affiliate of the Tongil Group.

President Jun-Young Cha said in his company introduction, “The distinct feature of the Segye Times is that it is being recognized as a newspaper strong at investigative reporting, and that it is being evaluated as strong at deep report planning, as reflected in the many awards that have been given to the Segye Times. The second distinct feature is that it is a newspaper with many reports sent in by outsiders. The third is that its online capabilities are top-notch,” reporting that everything was possible due to the trust accumulated since its founding 27 years ago.
In his speech on this day, President Kyeung-Seuk Ryu said, “I realized that there has been amazing results while listening to the reports. When I looked from the view of a Family Federation member, I was able to see how big of an advantage it is to have a newspaper company on our side. To the members of the Family Federation, the road of trials and pain that has been walked over the past 27 years as a company that has been faithful with reasonable arguments all the time, is their hope and desires,” expressing the value of the Segye Times.
In addition, he said, “I think that the movement of the Family Federation, that is walking the road of seeking the truth centered on our founder and his esteemed wife, in the 21st century, and of the providential institutions and companies that are putting effort into realizing world peace, is quite provocative to the world. But I also think that if the Segye Times becomes one through our biggest advantage of global solidarity, instead of its own unique factions, then that is the biggest accomplishment that Reverend Sun Myung Moon and Dr. Hak Ja Han hoped for this era.”
Following his speech, President Kyeung-Seuk Ryu said in his benediction, “Guide us so that people with a conscience can play the role of inspiring others with wisdom they gain from walking the path of Segye Times. Show us guidance so that the Segye Times can deliver the precious words to not 70 million, but to the 7.3 billion people in the world, thus fulfilling the holy achievements that the heavens wish for. I earnestly hope that the Segye Times can be with your great glory, and that the great fortunes of the heavens can be with the individuals and families of the providence,” finishing the event by wishing for the blessings of the heavens to be with the missions and staff of the Segye Times.
