Cultural exchange among early Chosŏn Korea, Ming China, and Muromachi Japan

Shedding light on the three-way cultural exchange among early Chosŏn Korea, Ming China, and Muromachi Japan, Professor Jongmook Lee examines poetic exchanges between Hanlin scholar Hua Cha 華察 (1497–1574) and his Korean counterpart So Se-yang 蘇世讓 (1486–1562); see, for example, page 25 (below) in his chapter “Establishing Friendships between Competing Civilizations: Exchange of Chinese Poetry in East Asia in the Fifteenth and Sixteenth Centuries” in RETHINKING THE SINOSPHERE, edited by Professors Nanxiu Qian, Richard J. Smith, and Bowei Zhang.
