The Korea Daily, the largest Korean language newspaper in the United States, reported on the workshop in a May 5, 2004 article entitled "Healthy Mind and Body."

The report said, "Falun Gong practitioners in Los Angeles introduced Falun Dafa with the topic of 'The True Way to Health' in the Pio Pico Koreatown Branch Library, and provided a free lecture and exercise instruction."

About 30 Korean-Americans participated in the activity. The report said, "In the two-hour lecture, practitioners first introduced the characteristics and history of Falun Dafa (Falun Gong), the effects of cultivation, and exposed the persecution in China. Then free exercise instruction was offered."

The report said that Dr. Lee, 41, a doctor of obstetrics and gynecology, who hosted this event, was a visiting professor at the University of California at Los Angeles (UCLA). He began by saying, "Since the public introduction of Falun Gong in 1992, Falun Gong has spread to over 60 countries. Former Chinese president, Jiang Zemin, initiated the persecution of Falun Gong in 1999."

A practice site was established in Koreatown of Los Angeles last month. The address is 3700 Wilshire Blvd. Group practice starts at 6:00 a.m. each morning.
