Last year, the Asia Institute invited the public to attend a free lecture by the author of the first English language book written about Choi Chi-won, one of Korea’s greatest historical figures. Author David Mason grew up in Michigan & has now lived in South Korea for more than three decades. He received his M.A. in Korean Studies (focusing on the History of Korean Religions) at the Graduate School of International Studies of Yonsei University in Seoul. He’s worked as an editor for the Jogye Order of Korean Buddhism, served as an enthusiastic tour-guide for groups of foreigners to Korea’s most beautiful and interesting areas, gives speeches on Korean history, culture & current development to various audiences, and also as a professor at the International Tourism for the Hanyang University Graduate School, a Professor of Cultural Tourism Studies at Kyung Hee University & currently at Chung-Ang University’s department of Public Service. Korea FM reporter Chance Dorland attended the event & filed this report.
