The National Museum of Korea (NMK) introduces a scholarly journal, /The 
International Journal of Korean Art and Archaeology/ to present advanced 
research and studies on Korean art and archaeology to the international 
academic community.  The publication of the journal was initiated by Dr. 
Hongnam Kim who has been addressing the need for a journal for the NMK 
to communicate better with the rest of the world since her inauguration 
in 2006 as the ninth director of the museum.  The journal will serve as 
the museum's flagship channel for international communication and 


Each annual issue of the journal will contain a number of articles to be 
selected by the editorial board, which consists of nine international 
and eight Korean scholars.  The topics will encompass a broad range of 
traditional Korean art and culture: archaeology, history, painting, 
crafts, architecture, and sculpture.


For the premier issue, six articles were selected (two from Japan and 
four from Korea) with the aim of providing a better understanding of 
historical significance of ancient artifacts of Korea; the originality 
of Korean traditional architecture; the beauty of Korean portrait 
painting; and the art world of Kim Hong-do, one of the greatest masters 
of Joseon.


We sincerely hope you will enjoy the first issue of /The International 
Journal of Korean Art and Archaeology/.
