The 2011 Korea Philatelic Exhibition is held from July 28 to August 1 at A Hall A1 COEX, under the theme of "the culture of the global village that you can encounter through stamps."

The Exhibition will stimulate the imagination of visitors by displaying various stamps: 450 frames of stamp exhibits; twenty or so of the Korean stamps that are internationally considered as rare stamps such as the sheet of Munwi Stamp, Korea's first stamp, and a sheet of the commemorative stamp celebrating the 40th anniversary of Emperor Gojong's enthronement, Korea's first commemorative stamp; and, commemorative stamps issued to celebrate the inaugurations of the Korean presidents. In the Global Village Special Exhibition Room where mailmen uniforms of each country are introduced, the visitors can get a glimpse of what the culture and life are like in countries around the world. Children visitors can participate in "I'm a stamp designer, too!" program, where they can, in person, design a stamp together with the stamp designers. Visitors can also access opportunities involving stamps by participating in lectures on stamp collection and on letter-writing, finding treasures hidden among stamp exhibits, quiz on stamp culture, etc.

This year's Philately Week Special Stamps feature 4 Korean Paintings among the excellent works of Korea's modern paintings. In the form of both stamps and souvenir sheets, people encounter such works as "Sansu" (mountain and water), the work of Jo Seok-Jin, widely regarded as the last modern painter to inherit the painting style of the Joseon Dynasty period, displaying the stereotype of wash drawing of the Joseon Dynasty period; "Jangsongnakil" (tall pine tree and the setting sun), the work of Ji Woon-Young, that shows modern formativeness and the painter's lyricism; "Unnangjasang" (the portrait of Unnangja), the work of Chae Yong-Sin, that shows a new type of "painting of beauty" during the modern era; and "Gunmado" (the picture of a group of horses), the work of Kim Ki-Chang, that dynamically depicts galloping horses tangled together.
