Intro to Korean Culture

Hughes, Theodore Silver_nugget
Intro to Korean Culture

Please keep in mind that this review is more than 5 years old.

Prof. Hughes is not a hit or miss, he is simply a miss.
Although I do highly admire his extensive knowledge of Korean culture, he presents it in such a way that is sometimes difficult to understand. He lectures as if everyone in the class is a Korean culture expert. Another thing that really bothered me is the fact that he always looked at some invisible line just above everyone's head, so even if you raised your hand to ask a question, he either didn't see it or was just ignoring you. Most of the classtime was spent on him analyzing various works of Korean literature, which although highly interesting, were difficult to understand without some sort of information on their historical context.

Workload:

Heavy. A lot of reading, a lot...
