At a Glance

As far back as the 18th century, peasants and intellectuals strove for change in Korea. Historical and political events from Japanese colonial rule, to the liberation and division of Korea, to the Korean War have all impacted South Korea. Join advisor to the Republic of Korea, Francis Daehoon Lee, to learn about the timeline of important events that influenced South Korean society and its political system. He’ll examine social movements, political parties and street protests for a glimpse of where Korea may be headed in the future.
