I go on Korea Times online everyday and I have overlooked this article everyday for several weeks. I finally clicked on the link tonight, and it happened to be about what our class discussed today. This is an opinion piece written by Andrei Lankov. I think the article has some good information. I don't know how I feel about his point that there was not loud dissent in the 1953-1979 period in South Korea. I think there was dissent, but it was forced to be quiet. I don't think dissent was non-existent, though it may have been ignored. We will hear more about this next week. Article.
