"The Story of Hong Gildong" (translated by Minsoo Kang)

This month, we will be reading "The Story of Hong Gildong" in the Penguin Classics series, translated by Minsoo Kang. Follow the link below for the edition and cover.
 
 
There are links to other interesting information on the book in the link above, FYI.
The meeting is scheduled for the last Wednesday of this month, June 26, as the Colloquium scheduled for Thursday.
On that note, I would like to propose that we meet on the first Wednesdays of the month from now on, as people tend to get busier towards the end of the month and there may be less schedule conflicts in the first week with other RAS events. I think we could use a break for the summer, and resume the meetings in September on the 4th, provide the room is available. We can talk about this at the meeting later this month. 
 
Looking forward to seeing you all then, and happy reading!
Yonjoo Hong
