The year in stamps: 1954 “The first post-war year”

South Korea

South Korea in 1954 was a nation that had just emerged from the turmoil of the Korean War. Although peace had been restored, the country was still struggling to rebuild and recover from the devastation caused by the war. Despite the challenges, the people of South Korea were determined to move forward and rebuild their lives.

In 1954, South Korea was led by President Syngman Rhee, who had been in power since the country’s establishment in 1948. Rhee was a strong anti-communist and had been a fierce opponent of North Korea during the Korean War. In 1954, Rhee’s government was focused on rebuilding the country’s infrastructure and economy. The government also worked to strengthen its relationship with the United States, which had been a key ally during the war.

  1. Very much impressed. Apart from anything else, the enlarged images of stamps are
    really fantastic archival sources. I am reading now the previous KSS journals. Simply
    speaking, I am embarrassed to learn that KSS has far better component and information
    on Korean philately than “Woopyo”. So shameful. You do not have to learn from us, but
    the time has come for us to learn from you. God bless KSS.
