White Horse

Founded in Pyongyang, Soongsil inherited a long line of heritage from the ancient Kokuryo people. The Kokuryo conquered Manchuria thanks to their excellent horsemanship. Soongsil University is also based upon Christian principles striving for true knowledge and dedicating itself to God’s kingdom. The image of the white horse originated from the bible: “And I looked, and behold, a white horse, and he who sat on it had a bow; and a crown was given to him; and he went out conquering, and to conquer.” (Revelations 6:2)
