Jackson paid a visit in 1997 to the Seoul offices of the late Kim Dae-jung, then a presidential candidate for the National Congress for New Politics in South Korea.
The two were photographed by reporters as Mr. Dae-jung demonstrated calligraphy techniques for the pop star. The former South Korean president, who died in 2009 at the age of 85, was a Nobel Peace Prize recipient, recognized for his efforts at reconciliation with North Korea.
