The Scion of the Underwoods

A report on the bearer of "a name familiar to many Koreans," whose ancestor "Horace Underwood came to Korea in 1885 as a missionary, and founded what became Yonsei University," and how he "decided in 1985 to buck the family tradition and leave education" and now heads "a business consultancy that helps foreign companies and others do business in Korea" — Crossing cultures a 125-year family affair.

The Underwood Family saga, a descent from the pinnacles of Protestant missionary greatness to commonplace "business consultancy," has in it the makings of a great American epic novel.
