The bookworm meme

Since I was tagged by deathquaker, here it comes again...

1. Grab the nearest book
Well, what have we here? It's Roy Richard Grinker's Korea and Its Futures, recommended by the fine proprietor of The Marmot's Hole.

2. Open the book to page 123.

3. Find the fifth sentence.
4. Post the text of the next 3 sentences on your blog along with these instructions.

"Portions of one very modern version of the Ch'unhyang story contain explicit descriptions of sexual activity. In some others, Ch'unhyang is represented as ugly; Yi breaks off his engagement with her, and she dies without resolving her han; her soul then wanders around Cholla-do and makes the land infertile as an expression of her suffering, though she is later reincarnated and there is a happy ending. Thus, the importance of Ch'unhyang may lie, mostly, not in her devotion to her future husband or in her exemplification of Confucian ideals, but in her ability to transform potentially paralyzing wonhan into patience, strength, and reconciliation."

5. Don't you dare dig for that "cool" or "intellectual" book in your closet! I know you were thinking about it! Just pick up whatever is closest.
Well, since I'm at work, the books in the "closet" are all manga collections. Heh.

6. Tag 5 people

No. Tag buildings, not people! ^_^
