The Korean Ministry of Public Administration and Security (MOPAS) has a number of bureaus, one of which is the Citations and Awards Bureau. It controls almost every aspect of Korea's Orders and Merit Medals, as well as both the Presidential and Prime Ministerial Citations. Buried deep within the Korean Language section of this website, you will find pictures of the current Korean Orders and Merit Medals. For your convenience, I have created two shortcuts:
  • Orders of Merit
  • Merit Medals
  • On the Orders or Merit Medals page, whichever you select, there is a list with enough English to locate a particular item. If you left click on that item, it will take you to a virtually identical page which displays pictures of the selected item in the lower half of the page.
