Chinilpa or Objective historical interpretation?

SEOUL--Art historian You Hong-june might best be described as the keeper of South Korea's cultural heritage.

His series of books, titled "My Exploration of Our Cultural Heritage," has sold more than 3 million copies since the first volume was published in 1993.

His trick is to bring life to the country's many temples, palaces and other cultural landmarks.

In August, he strayed from his chosen field and published his first volume outside of the Korean Peninsula. His topic was Kyushu and Asuka/Nara.

The book created a buzz, coming out at a time when relations between Japan and South Korea remain strained, and is still on the best-seller lists.

"Knowing about Japan as it really is will further broaden readers' understanding of Korean history," said You, 64.

When he attended Seoul National University, You was active in the student movement against the dictatorship that ruled South Korea.

His activities led to him being imprisoned, where his soul-searching culminated in the philosophy of "facts over ideals."

You, an oriental arts history major, has spent more than 30 years visiting historical sites in Japan. He is particularly fond of Nara, and the Asuka district in Nara Prefecture, because of its links with the ancient Korean kingdom of Baekje (early fourth century to 660).

Although he was born in Seoul, You says it "feels like I've come back to my hometown" when he rides a rented bicycle there.

You said he expects his new book to draw criticism. As he explains in the Nara volume, "Foreigners who came to settle in ancient Japan exerted an influence, but what grew there should be regarded as Japan's own culture."

In a description of the area in Kyushu that produced the Arita and Imari styles of pottery, You writes that the potters brought to Japan by troops sent to invade the Korean Peninsula by the warlord Toyotomi Hideyoshi in the late 16th century were "of lowly status in Korea, but in Japan treated as skilled artisans."

The book has generally been received positively. A common refrain is that "Japan must be assessed objectively."

You served as head of the Cultural Heritage Administration, which is tasked with protecting the nation's cultural properties, under former President Roh Moo-hyun. He continues to teach at Myongji University.

His goal is to entrust the next generation with the centuries-old ties that bind Korea and Japan.

"Korea and Japan have cultural and historical roots they can share," You said. "If we know each other well, then we can co-exist in peace."

This is what happened so far, in brief summary:

1. Imperial Japan - Japan, Korea & Manchuria = Japanese empire
2. Patriotic Japan - Korea, we have saved your ass from China (Manchu-Qing - so still not Chinese)
3. Right wing Japan - Korea was benefited from modernization implemented by Japan (Economy, literacy rate,life expectancy, health care etc..)
4. Pro-Japan & Chinipa - Yes, we're grateful of generosity of Japan since we're able to seize power in Korea
5. Korean Yangban (Joseon Elites), Republicans, Korean Patriotic -> killed, murdered, tortured to death, fled to China, Russia, Siberia, Europe, Central Asia.
6. Korean people (north & south) - Wait! all these claims are NOT true!

^ Not fan of him and I don't believe Koreans and Japanese have common cultural heritage, may be genetically related since Japanese are basically Korean & Jomon admix but culturally they are different. If we to compare them to oriental or East Asian culture sure they're related but when we dig deeper then we know they're not really related. Japanese love to connect missing dots with Korea in apparent inferior complexity towards European culture. To distance themselves from Chinese influence, Japanese linked with Mongolian and Central Aryan race and to get there they needed to steal Korean history. Remember, Turanian forum that held in Hungary and Turkey during last 100 years? Japan participated in these meetings & conference to connect themselves to European standard. They've used "Samurai" as something similar to that of Knight and Crusades.

No he didn't mock Korea at all. I think he was the professor who was presenting lectures at EBS History special program in front of high school and university students audience.
