St Petersburg University Publishing House publishes autobiography of Moon Jae-in, President of the Republic of Korea
St Petersburg University Publishing House has released the autobiographical book ‘Fate of Moon Jae-in’ authored by the President of the Republic of Korea. The University staff and graduates have worked on this publication.
Natalia Dmitrievskaia, a lecturer in the Department of Korean Studies at St Petersburg University, translated the book. Inna Tsoy, Associate Professor in the Department of Korean Studies, acted as one of the science editors. The book was edited by Daniil Pospelov, Specialist of the Directorate of the Korea–Russia Dialogue Forum and a graduate of St Petersburg University.
The book of the 12th President of the Republic of Korea Moon Jae-in is not only an autobiography, but also a view of the big-time global politics through the eyes of its immediate participant. The story sheds light on the little-known episodes related to the history of the Korean Government. In a large measure, this book pays the tribute to the memory of former South Korean President Roh Moo-hyun. His friendly relations with Moon Jae-in had a significant impact on the fate of the author. Showing South Korean society from within, the book describes the 30 years of their friendship and tells the story of political struggle and ambition to create a fair society.
For reference: the translation of the book into Russian and its publication in Russia were suggested during the meeting of Rector Nikolay Kropachev and Consul General of the Republic of Korea in 2020. The book was first published in 2011 by Bookal, a prominent publishing house in Seoul.
