establishing in-depth research on the
essence of Korean culture. To achieve
this aim, The Academy has devoted
itself to identifying and interpreting
traditional Korean culture, defining the
academic identity of Korean Studies,
and cultivating able scholars with global
perspectives and values that will be
indispensible in the 21st century.”
