Jini says: This news has been on my radar for a while now not only because it’s one of the biggest issues in Korea right now but also because I was at the actual school where some of its leading faculty are on the forefront of this history textbook renationalization effort.

Okay, from here on out is the news article that I copied and pasted from Dr. Eugene Park’s social media post:
