Description

  • English
  • Hongjun Liu is an art historian and a best-selling author. He is a former Head of the Cultural Heritage Administration and is currently a chair professor at Myonji University. He led many field investigation programs and wrote My Journeys into Korean Cultural Heritage. This series includes eight books on Korean cultural heritage, including one on North Korea, and four books on Japanese cultural heritage. Its first book sold more than a million copies, the first million-seller for non-fiction in humanities. Considering that books about artworks and relics are rarely best-sellers, the popularity of him and his books is exceptional. The four books about Japanese cultural heritage are now in process of being translated into Japanese, and Exploring Korean Treasures is being translated into Japanese and Spanish.
