There is a saying 'Those who cannot learn from history are doomed to repeat it'. Valuing this more than anyone else, Kim Yu-hee, director of Future Asset Cultural Forum, has been passionately spreading history of Korea in an effort to build a better future by learning from history.
One of the core projects of the Forum for now is to promote Chen Bu-gyeong, an ancient scripture of Korea. The Forum has sent 87 copies of the book in English to foreign embassies and residencies in South Korea.
"Chen Bu-gyeong is a valuable ancient book of Korea that contains excellent spiritual culture our ancestors enjoyed. So I'm passionate to share this with the citizens of the world. I'm currently writing it in Chinese and I'm also planning to publish an English version of Samil-Singo, another ancient book of Korea" says Kim. At the lecture recently held, Kim and deputy director Ryu Ki-min presented about the book 'Heado-Geumyeojang' Kim wrote.
"I was curious how Monk Wonhyo saw the world after 2020. He actually predicted the rise and fall of Goryeo, coup of Lee Sung-gae, Japanese invasions of Korea, division of Korea, appearances of Rhee Syng-man and Kim Il-sung, coup of Park Chung-hee, and coup of Chun Doo-hwan. So I launched a research about him and wrote the book."
Alongside history lectures, Kim runs a eight week course of the Tarot of Marseilles. He invited former Kyonggi University professor Hong Da-yeon specialized in four pillars of destiny in line with tarot for a lecture. Those who attended the course more than 88% are eligible to obtain a certificate of finish issued from the lifelong learning division of Seoul Dongbu District Office of Education.
Kim also invited ki artist Seo -Yu-jeong to give a lecture on daily life of black hole, practical skills of ki painting, and ki dance. Director Kim said "Latter half of 2020 was a meaningful time for me to run various programs with Chen Bu-gyeong on the center. Chen Bu-gyeong has answers to unification of the two Koreas and the right course we have to sail through. As for the next year, I will introduce more educational contents."
