Faculty mentor: Daniel Porter Morgan

This paper researched the orrelation between Korea’s national inferiority complex, Han, and historical background. Even though Korea became a minor global power, Koreans still feel inferior to their international position. Reason for this is because Korean experienced colonization and division by external forces in the past. Pain from the past acccumulated Han, which is a unique Korean sentiment, and Han affected Korean’s inferiority complex, which continues in modern days.
