Living Heritage Podcast


Feb 9, 2018

Jae Hong Jin is a researcher, photographer, and musician who is currently working as a library assistant at the QEII library at Memorial University, with a background in the anthropology and folklore of his native Korea. Since his college days, Jae has been a tradition bearer of the intangible cultural heritage of traditional farmers' music and drumming ensembles, and his MA research focussed on traditional music learners and audiences, continuity, and change. We talk about how Korean culture has changed over the last fifty years, the work being done to safeguard intangible cultural heritage and musical traditions, cultural tourism, Korean folktales, and discuss if there is anything in the world more terrifying than a dried persimmon.
