As you see from the title, the purpose of this book is to introduce the wisdom and morality of Korean’s ancestors for the foreigners. Even though this book contains a little bit of our ancestors' messages, I am sure that it will help you to understand the way of how ancient Koreans thought and lived. I am really grateful for my family and my history teacher who have encouraged me to challenge this task. The most part of the passages used here, are from the book,《The Petition to the King》 (2010, Seoul: PYEONGDAN) written by LEE HOSUN, my father, to whom I particularly thank

Lee Jinkun

The author, LEE JINKUN
