One of Dosan's biggest dreams was the Hung Sa Dan also known as the Young Korean Academy. He created this organization with a group of Korean patriots and intellectuals who represented each of the eight provinces of Korea. This organization was officially launched on May 13, 1913 in the city of San Francisco. The headquarters moved to Los Angeles and then to Seoul. It still exists today with many branches in Korea and in major cities in the United States.
The Hung Sa Dan - Young Korean Academy was created to build young people of good mind, good spirit and good health. It was a plan to develop young people with good character. These people were to build a network of trust and sincerity in all they would do. The result of this program was to have quality people capable of becoming leaders of the Korean nation once it was freed from the Japanese occupation. This group was going to be the foundation for the new independent democratic nation of Korea.

Do not recognize anyone as a leader based on vanity... Examine his qualities not by rumors that go around but by looking into his history and actions. »Dosan
