Dear list members,

We are pleased to announce the publication of the Summer 2012 issue of
the *Korea
Journal* (vol. 52, no. 2). This issue is composed of eight articles
covering various topics in the field of Korean Studies, all of which have
been selected through the journal’s rigorous reviewing process.

The first article by Hee Kyung Suh explores the question of just war theory
as it applies to the Korean War by relying on the work of Michael Walzer,
and, based on Walzer’s work, concludes with a judgment on the
responsibilities for the intervention in and the waging of the Korean War.

The second article by Kim Ji Hyung shows how thoroughly and actively the
Rhee administration mobilized and used the existing civilian organizations
and networks to track down collaborators after the recapturing of Seoul on
September 28, 1950.

Park Hong-kyu’s article pays attention to how King Sejong, who has been
known as a typical Confucian king, employed *zhongyong* (doctrine of the
mean) when he expressed support for a Buddhist event of repairing the *
sarigak* at Heungcheonsa temple in 1435 and came into conflict with his
Confucian subjects.

Yoo Weon-ki’s article addresses the Four-Seven Debate between Toegye and
Gobong in the late 16th century, with a focus on the word “*bal* 氣”
(*fa*in Chinese pronunciation), a concept that played a significant
role in the

Lim Tae-seung’s article explores the artistic spirit of Shin Yun-bok, a
Korean painter of 18th-century Joseon, who the author views as having
criticized the reality of Confucian society through the icon of the lotus.

The sixth article by Jong-Taick Joo reveals the process of identity
formation and transformation of a rural Korean folk village named Oeam,
following its tourism development.

The seventh article co-authored by Jang Dong-Jin and Choi Won Jae diagnoses
the current situation of Muslim immigrants in Korea and suggests a more
positive direction

for including them in Korean society.

The last article by Kim Keum Hyun, utilizing the concept of “sociology of
knowledge” developed by Karl Mannheim and the sociocultural value
orientation of Fons Trompenaars, investigates intercultural
misunderstandings between Koreans and Malays at work that may prevent
Korean companies from becoming key players in global collaboration,
