The Koreans: understanding a people and their culture through key words and language.

Koreans have a unique character and personality that sets them apart from all other Asians. And although Korean attitudes and behavior may be influenced by the modern world, the Korean mindset is still very much shaped by ancient culture and traditions. As is the case with all ancient cultures created within highly refined and meticulously structured social systems over thousands of years, one of the keys to understanding traditional Korean attitudes and behavior is the language of the people--or more precisely, key words in the language. These key words provide access to the Korean mind--to core concepts and emotions, the attitudes and feelings that make up the Korean psyche. These key terms reveal both the heart and soul of Koreans and provide bridges for communicating and interacting with Koreans on the most fundamental level.

In The Korean Mind, Boye Lafayette De Mente explores the meanings and cultural context of the most important "code words" of the Korean language, terms whose significance goes well beyond their literal definitions, providing an insight into Korean culture and the personality of the Korean people.

Keywords include:

  • Aboji, Ah-boh-jee -- The "Father Culture"
  • Anae, Ah-negh -- Wives: The Inside People
  • Han Yak, Hahn Yahk -- The Herbal Way to Health
  • Innae, Een-nay -- A Culture of Enduring
  • Katun Sosuy Pap, Kaht-unn Soh-suut Pahp -- Eating from the Same Rice Bowl
  • And over 200 more...

A nice book that has a lot of content on the South Korean culture. Very helpful for someone who wants to know more ablut Korean culture and mindset. It helps to understand Koreans and why they are who they are. But, there is no order whatsoever, it should be devided topic by topic which would make things easier. The hangul in this book should only be used as a guide and not as a reference because there are mistakes.
