3. Book Intro

Jeong Yulseong is a composer who is not well-known to his fellow Koreans; however, he is a composer who is still respected and loved by many people in China. He was born as the youngest of the five children in the city of Gwangju in South Jeolla Province in 1914 during the Japanese occupation of Korea. In 1933 at the age of 19, Jeong followed his older brother to China to fight for the independence of his country. At Nanjing, Jeong Yulseong was trained as a member of Euiyeoldan (the Heroic Corps), an organization of independence activists who believed in the means of revolutionary uprising to liberate the country. However, he was extremely musical, and he began composing music. When he was in Yan’an where the headquarters of the Chinese communist party was located, he composed “The Song of Yan’an,” a song so lyrical and powerful at the same time that it was popular among not only Chinese but also Japanese. He wrote a song initially called “March of the Eighth Route Army” which was to become the military anthem of the People's Liberation Army. Through black and white illustrations resembling woodblock prints, The Song of Yan’an: The Story of Jeong Yulseong is a graphic novel which tells the life story of Jeong Yulseong to readers who are not familiar with his name. After the liberation, the country went through the turmoil of division followed by a civil war, and during this chaos, Jeong could not return to his hometown in South Korea, and he could not settle permanently in North Korea. Yulseong stayed in China, and in 1976, he died at the age of 62 in Beijing while fishing. The writer and artist of the graphic novel, Park Kunwoong included his statement in the book: “During war when many were forgetting their inherent goodness, people were able to maintain their integrity as human beings because of art and music… In the end, one man’s music was stronger than a gun or sword, and it became a testament to the power of music that was greater than revolution.”

3. Book Intro

In the 17th century, a huge change came about in astronomy with the advent of the telescope. People broke through the limitations of observation with the naked eye. As a result, astronomy became a field of discovery rather than a field of recording. Illustrations also became a great means of communication to present new astronomical phenomena and prove one's hypothesis. But how could scientists argue that the phenomena observed through a telescope were true? Also, how could people believe that the pictures, which recorded the findings, were right?
This book shows the process of pictures becoming part of science as a visual language while also examining the Scientific Revolution through 17th-century scientific illustrations. Introduced in this book are interesting pieces of history including the moon observed and drawn by Galileo, competition among the inventors of different telescopes, and the struggles of astronomers who tried to find safe routes during the Age of Discovery. It also portrays the disputes over Jupiter’s satellites and Saturn's rings.

Artist Park Sibaek has been studying the history of the Joseon Dynasty since 2001 and has re-created The Annals of Joseon Dynasty as comics anyone can read easily and interestingly.
The Annals of the Joseon Dynasty vividly revived the 500-year history of the Joseon Dynasty based on the thorough historical investigation, solid composition, and his own clear viewpoint and has become a representative book as a primer on the history of the Joseon Dynasty with sales of about 4 million copies. Park Sibaek was awarded the Grand Prize of the Comics of the Republic of Korea and the Bucheon Comics Grand Prize.
The Annals of the Joseon Dynasty consists of 20 volumes and its revised edition was published in 2015. It is an educational comic set balanced with knowledge and fun that allows readers to look at the reign of each King from the founding of the Joseon Dynasty to the fall thereof, and to easily understand the 500-year history of the Joseon Dynasty.
