Two From Kuiwon on Redeeming Sino-Korean

  • "Korea in its efforts to modernize unfortunately discarded many traditional elements of its culture and society," and "[o]ne victim of modernization was Sino-Korean, viewed as outmoded and a remnant stain of imperialism by the blind Nationalists and those English-crazed dilettantes who follow every fading fad," begins a fascinating post for the linguistically inclined — Against Hangul Supremacy – Exonyms Versus Endonyms.

  • "Though North Korea was the first to implement a Hangul-exclusionary policy, it seems Classical Chinese poetry is still revered there" — Kim Ilsung – Mount Baekdu.
