TOP REVIEWS FROM UNDERSTANDING KOREAN POLITICS
I would recommend this course to anybody who wants to learn about politics. Mr Chung in-Moon is a fantastic teacher and makes it seems like a story. I hope to be his pupil one day in real time.
The course was very interesting and professor did amazing job explaining politics and history in very short amount of time. Highly recommended course and will definitely use in my career.
Very informative course! It’s content heavy but I have a much better understanding of Korean politics and its complexities! I can’t wait to return Korea with this new understanding!
Excelent course. I enjoyed it a lot and I wish it was longer with a bit more of history and analysis regarding social changes, economy and North/South relations.
