Quarter Taken: Spring 2019 Submitted June 20, 2019 Grade Received: A

This class was definitely a lot of readings, but they were very interesting. Before coming into this class, I really hated readings. But the readings in this class made me think more deeply and I now have the desire to read more. Professor Hanscom is also very very knowledgable, nice and approachable. His language ability impressed me.
In terms of the class itself, you write weekly posts answering one question regarding the readings you did. Have one midterm on materials covered roughly in week 1-5 and a final paper. As long as you do the readings and listen in class, the midterm was not that tough. I really liked this class despite the amount of readings assigned and I would definitely try to take more classes with this professor in the future.

Prof. Hanscom is by far the best professor that I have at UCLA .

His Korea C151 class is FANTASTIC. The class materials, readings, and powerpoint slides are splendid.

If you read all required readings before each class, you will learn that it is a blessing to be able to go to a class taught by someone who masters the subject and cares about the materials in great details.

Prof. Hanscom is very approachable, extremely smart, funny, and willing to help students.
This class will offer you an invaluable chance to develop a sophisticated taste for Modern Korean Fiction from authors such as Yi Kwangsu, Hwang Sok-yong, Cho Se-hui, Kim Yong-ha, Pak Mingyu, and many more.

The class ends a while ago, but I often think of T. H. White's passage " still the light of memory weaves" that Prof. Hanscom introduced during one of the classes.
Highly recommend this class to anyone who loves literature or cares to "learn from one of the best UCLA professors" before graduation.
