Astronism in the Republic of Korea. This country is under management and philosophical jurisdiction of The Institution of The Philosophy of Millettism for the Republic of Korea which is a national subsidiary for the worldwide Astronist Institution.
The Institution of the Philosophy of Millettism for the Republic of Korea oversees the construction and maintenance of observatories and planetariums throughout its jurisdiction. The Republic of Korea is split into eight provinces, one special self-governing province, six metropolitan cities, one special, and one metropolitan autonomous city, and is set to hold one Grand Observatory in the capital city of Seoul.
This national branch of The Institution of The Philosophy of Millettism manages the official representation and depiction of Astronism throughout these territories, including efforts to protect the identity of the philosophy with the intention of further disseminating it throughout these territories.
It is The Institution alone that is granted the status of proprietor to the philosophy in these territories as any other organisations or institutions proclaiming such a role are deemed as unauthorised proprietors and are therefore considered as part of the anti-Institutionist movement.
History of Astronism in South Korea
