Obviously, the Bureau of Posts plans to issue this Special Sheet in celebration of the 5th Postal Week, (which was planned for 20.5.1961), was curtailed due to Park Chon-hee's Military Revolution, which began on 16.5.1961, 4 days before the planned release. Five years later, the completed Special Sheet was taken off-the-shelf and over-printed with the 6th Postal Week, and issued on 13.6.1966

This year’s special stamp issued to commemorate Philately Week takes the form of a “stamp in a stamp.” The stamps introduced as “stamp in a stamp” are definitive stamps issued in May 1900 (worth 1-cheun, Taegeuk and Plum Blossoms) and definitive stamps issued in May 1969 (worth 7-won, National flag, Taegeukgi). They are introduced in a triangle-shaped stamp. The definitive stamp worth 1 cheun is one of the Plum Blossoms (called Ihwa in Korean) definitive stamps - the first stamps to be printed in Korea. The definitive stamp worth 7 won is the first stamp to be printed in Korea using the gravure printer since its introduction in Korea. This special stamp will be a photochromic stamp that reacts to ultraviolet light: such items on the two sides of the stamp as ‘ ’, ‘ ’, ‘ ’ and ‘ ’ will change from dyed color into a red color, when they are exposed to direct sunlight. This special stamp in the form of “stamp in a stamp,” which was first introduced in 2007, will continue into its 2010 version.

To encourage stamp collecting and to broaden the stamp culture, Korea Post has designated a “philately week” every year and held the Korea Philatelic Exhibition during that week. This year, the Korea Philatelic Exhibition will be held from July 29 to August 2 at A Hall A1 (ex-Pacific Hall), COEX, under the theme of “a cool, cultural world where stamps and letters meet.”

In the 2010 Korea Philatelic Exhibition, a variety of experiences and eye-entertaining events will be presented. There will be enjoyable events involving stamps such as visiting cultural relics through stamps, printing hand-stamps as Ahn Jung-geun, the patriot, did, figuring out large-scale stamp puzzles and “I can also be the main character of the stamp” (photo zone of My Own Stamp). Five hundred frames of excellent stamp exhibits will be displayed. The “Stamp Culture Promotion Room” will showcase stamps that have won awards in the International Postage Stamp Design Contests, stamps that focus on environmental protection, stamps featuring dinosaurs, and stamps on historical figures. Also the “Korea Post Special Room” will introduce Korea Post’s footprints through stamps and posts, and will display how postman’s uniforms, postboxes and post office vans have changed through the years. The “Green Post Office” will introduce future-oriented postal systems such as e-green post, internet stamps, etc. The “Korea Minting and Security Printing Corporation Room” will show the process of stamp printing. The “Stamp & Letter-Writing Culture Room” will allow visitors to directly experience writing letters and attaching stamps. This festival where every family member can experience stamps will be an unforgettable experience.

As the last installment of the “stamp in a stamp” series that have been issued since 2007, this year’s special stamp issued to commemorate the “Philately Week” features the “5000 Years of Korean Art” special stamps (featuring black and red statues of the Deva King (Vajradhara)), Korea’s first intaglio stamp. This special stamp will be a photochromic stamp that reacts to ultraviolet light: such items as “1980” ,“30” will change from a dyed color to the red color, when they are exposed to direct sunlight.
