On behalf of Organizing Committee, it is my honor and pleasure to invite you to attend the first meeting of Taiwan Korea Head and Neck Science on January 13 2018. The development of close friendship and exchange between both countries started for many years, especially in the field of head and neck surgery. I met Professors Phil-Sang Chung, Kwang-Hyun Kim, Soon-Hyun Ahn, and Seung-Kuk Baek, and Sung Min Chung in this April for ICORL 2017 meeting in Seoul. We discussed the issue of strengthening of relationship between both young head and neck surgeons. All of us promptly reached the consensus in the establishment of meeting of Taiwan Korea Head and Neck Science at every two-year interval. Kaohsiung is located in southern part of Taiwan at the zone of subtropical area. During the winter time, the climate and temperature are wonderful. It is very suitable for outdoor activities, especially the golf playing at this moment. Hopefully, all the attendees could not only could involve this scientific program thoroughly but also enjoy everything, including the golf playing, sightseeing, food and wine in Kaohsiung.
