To date, the first dialogue was held in Seoul, Korea, the second in Beijing, China, and the third in Tokyo, Japan, before returning to Seoul for the fourth event. The fifth dialogue, in which over 40 people from the three countries participated, was held online due to the travel restrictions resulting from the spread of COVID-19 (coronavirus disease).
