Dear sisters ...... Our sister Josephine's academic paper based on her study of Yong Joon is out this month, congratulations! It is published in Karunungan - a journal of philosophy. I still remember Josephine when she first entered her comments here during the airing of TWSSG. She drew many comparisons of Damdeok and Yong Joon, and she always provides us of her philosophical knowledge and thoughts. I knew about her study and writing of an academic paper on Yong Joon but am so grateful that she is sharing it with us, thanks Josephine!
"Junzi by Confucius and the Archetypes of Carl Jung in Bae Yong Joon and the Winter Sonata" Yes yes, I am pulling out my dictionary at this moment as I am reading the title. A quick glance at the content of the paper indicates that I will be needing it and probably an encyclopedia too. Sigh, I am not a scholar like Josephine and my tiny brain can only hold so much of our handsome prince :( But I am very eager to read about her study on Yong Joon. It will be a very interesting read for me when I am sitting on the plane to Taipei this Christmas :)
Her paper is entitled :
For you avid readers, Josephine has also written another knol about self management, change management and leadership based on the drama 'Lovers in Paris'. The knol is titled : "Lovers in Paris, a critique" Hehe, together with Yong Joon's 'Beauty of Korea' book, I think this Christmas Holidays will be filled with the warm thoughts of our handsome prince :)
