Dear colleagues,

It is with great pleasure that we announce Hyunjoon Park (Korea Foundation

Program in Korean Studies at the University of Pennsylvania.  Director
Park’s appointment will begin on July 1, 2019.  Hyunjoon Park brings to the
James Joo-Jin Kim Program his comprehensive leadership experience, deep
knowledge of Korean studies, and a forward-looking perspective.

Professor Park received his Ph.D. in Sociology from the University of
Wisconsin-Madison in 2005. He has published a single-authored book,
Education in Japan and Korea: De-mystifying Stereotypes* (2013 Routledge)
and co-edited a book, *Korean Education in Changing Economic and

2016; and Vol. 17. Globalization, Changing Demographics, and Educational
Challenges in East Asia with Emily Hannum and Yuko Butler, 2010). Park has
also edited three journal special issues as either a single editor or

East Asia, and growing up in one-parent families in Asia. Park has
published more than 70 journal articles and book chapters. Park is the
director of the research lab, “Korean Millennials: Coming of Age in the Era
