And quiet flows the Han
This is a blog about the historical and contemporary interactions between Russians and Koreans. In most cases, but by no means always, political issues are studiously avoided by the author, whose major interest is everyday life, culture and the lives of individuals. In this blog, we will explore how Russian culture was (and is) seen in Korea. We will also talk about migration, inter- marriage and even cuisine. So to put it simply, the blog is about how these two countries have interacted over the last 200-odd years. Dr. Andrei Lankov, born in 1963, is a historian specializing in Korea. He is also known for his journalistic writings on Korean history. He has published a number of books (four in English) on Korean history. Having taught Korean history at the Australian National University, he now teaches in Kookmin University in Seoul.
