Hi Maxwell. In your post you have discussed about how art provide a method to oppose the resistance of a culture from the alien ones and how art is a covert way to express the ideas that are usually not allowed to be speak out. I totally agree with your ideas. As art is a more conceptual and imaginary form of idea expression, in many countries, during the war, that is how the art is preserved for so long while the word information is destroyed. Lately, those art works will be interpreted by people to restore the reality of the events in past periods.

Hi Ethan, I think what you mentioned about how Koreans established the concept of "Korean" to defend the Japanese culture incursion is a great point. In many countries, like China, the way of getting people united is to establish a consensus among people to make them feel fit in. The "Korean" model is the way how Korean people want their citizens to be connected and supported by their peers, neighborhood, and the government.
