Culture and Customs of Korea

Culture and Customs of Korea is an excellent introduction to the Korean people and their religion, arts and literature, daily life, and customs. It presents the most important experiences that have shaped life in both North and South Korea today.

These include the migration of the people from farms in the countryside to crowded city apartments, the effects of rapid industrialization, and the continuing trauma of the country’s division. Accessible and highly authoritative, Culture and Customs of Korea will be the ultimate source for students and other interested readers to learn about an important Asian society and the homeland of the many Korean Americans.

For centuries, although strongly influenced by the Chinese, Koreans have maintained a unique civilization with their own language, social organization, food, national costume, political institutions, and customs. The disruptions of the 20th century have included a long and difficult period of foreign rule and a devastating civil war. However, Koreans continue to prize their traditional culture, and the younger generations have embraced Koreanness with a determination to assert Korea’s place in the world. Culture and Customs of Korea artfully depicts the past and present in North and South Korea with chapters on the story of the Korean people, thought and religion, arts and literature, performing arts, daily life and folkways, life in a Korean village, life in urban Korean, and gender, marriage, and the lives of Korean women. A chronology and glossary supplement the text.

Guide to Korean Culture: Korea’s cultural heritage

Provides a comprehensive introduction about Korea’s cultural heritage. Koreans take great pride in their cultural heritage and for ample reason. The ancient kingdoms of Goguryeo, Baekje and Silla (1st century B.C.-A.D. 7th century) produced some of the world’s most outstanding Buddhist art. Goryeo, the dynasty that ruled Korea from 918 to 1392, produced inlaid celadon ceramics of impeccable beauty and the world’s most comprehensive collection of Buddhist scriptures, the Tripitaka Koreana, flawlessly carved from over 80,000 woodblocks. Goryeo scholars took the art of printing still further by developing the first movable metal type, two centuries before it appeared in Europe. The monarchs of Joseon, which ruled Korea from 1392 to 1910, also supported the creation of notable firsts; a rain gauge(1441); Hangeul(1443), an alphabet so scientific that modern linguists praise its efficiency; and an ironclad battleship(late 16th century) Over their long history, Koreans have developed a vibrant culture with unique customs that can be found throughout the peninsula and in distant lands where Korean communities continue to pass down traditions. Koreans value learning and have earned a reputation for diligence and perseverance. These traits helped foster a culture well suited to the natural surroundings of a mountainous peninsula.
