Amidst 840238402 other things to do, I am still allocating time to my new-found hobby: the study of Korean history (in Korean). I know I’m just being stupid, but I refuse to study Korean history using any other languages other than Korean. I refuse to look at romanised words.
I am in particular, very very interested in the regime of King Sejong – my favorite king in the whole of history. ^^
I have found an excellent site: The Annals of the Chosun Dynasty!! 😀 😀 So. Awesome. They have annals in the Hangul version, the Hanja version and also a copy of the original Hanja annals!! OMG. *happy*
From a logical point of view, time is running out and I should either be focusing on my school work or studying for TOPIK. But sorry, I’m never known to be rational. This site is like crack 😀
So I’m setting aside all work to pore over the annals 😀
Who cares whether this is ‘useful or not’. I only read what I want to read. ^^
I hope I will get a chance to study Korean history in Korean in Korea! 😀
That would be wayy awesome.
