Korea Focus;Spring2008, Vol. 16 Issue 1, p71
The author reflects on the impact of the leadership of King Sejong as a ruler of a royal dynasty of the 15th century in Korea. According to the author, society led by King Sejong during his period is very different from this modern period when the interests of so many various groups are interlocked. The author added that it would be dangerous to argue that all people need to do is admire King Sejong and take him as a model for everything.
