Lisa Kim Davis is very monotone and quite boring but overall I recommend taking her. There is one midterm and no in-class final. I got an A- in the class without reading the entire books. As long as you read the chapters she discusses in class you will be fine. The term paper requires some work and research but it's not that bad. Easy B and a little work for an A
Professor Davis teaches the class with movies, lectures, and slides. The good part is that she covers interesting topics. The bad part is, her delivery is mostly ineffective due to her style. She could improve a lot by mentioning topics rather than giving a timeline of events. That being said, the course work and lectures show korea in a different light than todays Kpop.
i loved her! her class was very chilled && very easy. i only bought one book from her class && rest read online. you DONT have to buy all the books she requries. I was manage to get an EASY A without any definite lecture notes (in fact, i had none!). her workload seems overwhelming, but it actually isn't, and you will know it when you take her class. i liked it!
