This 123-slide presentation (yes, 123 slides) is entitled, "Eight Days a Week: Korea's History & Culture" and covers Korea history, its geography, the pace of life in Korea, unique "Korean-isms," and food, drink, and song in Korea. The first three sections are tailored to my audience and can probably be skipped by most people.

  • The history of Korea dates back almost 5,000 years. The country started modernization and economic development in the late nineteenth century, a process blocked by Japanese colonial annexation in 1910. Rapid economic and industrial development began again in the 1960s.
  • The history of Korea dates back almost 5,000 years. The country started modernization and economic development in the late nineteenth century, a process blocked by Japanese colonial annexation in 1910. Rapid economic and industrial development began again in the 1960s.
  • Japan modernized its army in late 19th century and built a strong military power. In early 20th century Japan invaded Korea and northern China. In its effort to eradicate Korean culture and identity, Japan in 1938 banned the use of the Korean language in schools, forced Koreans to abandon Korean names and change them to Japanese names. While many made such changes, however reluctantly, others, like the poet, Buddhist monk and resistance leader Han Yong-un (1879-1945). Korean resistance movement groups fought the Japanese in Korea and northern China. Koreans in Shanghai, the US and elsewhere in exile sought to gsin support to free Korea from Japanese rule, but in vain.
