9781565910072: Koreans to Remember: 50 Famous People Who Helped Shape Korea

50 famous people who helped shape Korea. This book will provide you with the basic details of many historical characters of Korea. Use the book as a reference whenever you encounter famous names and wish to quickly become conversant in the basis of their popularity.

While there are many tourist guides and history books that detail famous places in Korea, relatively little is written about the people of Korean history. What little material is available in English is scattered and sometimes difficult to obtain.

To provide an interested reader with the basic details of many historical characters of Korea, the author conducted a survey to choose famous names which Koreans thought foreigners should study if they wanted to develop a basic knowledge of Korea. There are names from many periods of history. Included are political figures, businessmen, religious figures, philosophers, kings, scholars, military figures and artists.

90 b/w photos.
