What is meant by "Dasan" as in the name of this service 'Dasan 120'?
"Dasan" was the pen name of Jeong Yak-yong (1762-1836), a leading Korean philosopher during the Joseon Dynasty. He is commonly regarded as the greatest of the Silhak thinkers, who advocated that the formalist Neo-Confucian philosophy of Joseon return to practical concerns. Seoul City picked this name for the Seoul Call Center to show its commitment to delivering sincere and exceptional services to "citizen customers," based on Dasan's teaching.
