Profile: Until the end of Great Korea (1910), Daejeon was a small village. Between 1910 and 1945, Korea was part of the Japanese Empire. The city developed after it was connected to the railway in 1914. During the Korean War (1950 to 1953), Daejeon was temporarily the capital of South Korea. Daejeon grew after the Korean War as a center of textile industry, mechanical engineering and chemical industry. In 1993, the World Exhibition was held here. The EXPO Bridge was built for this occasion. For the 2002 FIFA World Cup, three matches were held in the newly built Daejeon World Cup Stadium. The Chungnam National University, the Korea Aerospace Research Institute, South Korea’s space agency, and the Korea Advanced Institute of Science & Technology (KAIST), South Korea’s leading university in the field of engineering sciences, are located in Daejeon.
