Wolnam : Lee Sang Jae


Fighter for independence





Yi Sang-jae (Korean: 이상재, 26 October 1850 1929 March 1927; also written as Lee Sang-jae)


was a religious leader and independence fighter at the end of the Korean Empire.


이상재(李商在, 18501026~ 1927329)는 조선후기, 대한제국의 정치인으로 개화파 운동가였으며,


일제 강점기 조선 시대의 교육자, 청년운동가, 독립운동가이자 정치인, 언론인이다. 충청도 서천의 한산 땅에는


월남(月南) 이상재(李商在, 1850~1927)의 생가가 잘 보존되어 있고 유물관도 세워져 있다. 그의 생가를 보면


그저 먹고 살 만한 중농의 집 규모임을 알 수 있다. 이런 시골구석에서 한 거인이 태어났던 것이다.













He was born in Jongji-ri, Hansan-myeon, Seocheon-gun, Chungcheongnam-do. His real name is Gey-ho.


 He was the president of the Independence Association and published the first Korean private newspaper,


 Independence Newspaper. When Korea was a colony of Japan,


 he was active in the movement to establish the Korean Private University.


Also, he was the first president of Singanhoe, one of the biggest independence groups in Korea.





The Korean language is spoken mainly in North and South Korea.


 It is spoken by more than 78 million people (most of whom are North or South Koreans).


Korean is related to Japanese. Some others say it is related to the language of some Siberia and Sakhalin tribes aswell.


In South Korea, it is called hangukmal or hangugeo (Hangeul: Hanja: 韓國語). In North Korea, however,


 it is called choseonmal or choseoneo ( 朝鮮語). They are named differently because the common names for North and South Korea are different.


 In additional, Koreans usually call their language urimal (Hangeul:) or urinara mal (Hangeul:) meaning "our language" or "our country's language".

The word independence means "not dependent", or not having to depend on anyone or anything else.


It also means being strong and able to survive alone. Anything can be dependent or independent.


 When people talk about independence, it may be about people or countries,


where it is often being spoken about as a good thing. For places,


it may mean sovereignty or autonomy. In science, as in independent variable the word does not mean it's good or bad.


A country gets its independence when it is no longer part of another country.


Sometimes countries get their independence in a war,


 as when the United States left the British Empire in the American War of Independence.


 Countries can also get their independence peacefully, like Canada and Norway did.


Help from another country may be needed to get independence, like in World War II,


 when the allies freed many countries that had been controlled by the Axis powers and,


temporarily, vice versa. Attempts to gain independence may lead to civil war and may be unsuccessful.


Singapore gained independence from Malaysia in 1965.


The newest country to get its independence was South Sudan.




Other countries that became independent not long ago are Bosnia and Herzegovina in 1992,


 Eritrea in 1993 and East Timor in 2002. However,


some countries have political parties that discuss whether their country should become independent.


 Some examples of these are the Scottish National Party (SNP) or the Puerto Rican Independence Party (PIP).


A religion is a set of ethical beliefs that is held by a group of people so passionately with some sort of sacrifice.


There are many different religions, each with a different set of beliefs.


The beliefs are about the world and the people in it,


about how they came into being, and what their purpose is.


These beliefs according to some religious sects, are often linked to supernatural beings such as God,


 a number of gods or spirits.

They may also be linked to an idea such as a path that the spirit of each person should take towards goodness,


 truth and duty. This they called spirituality.


Each religion has different ideas about these things.


Each religion also has a "moral code" which is a set of beliefs about how humans should act.


Each religion usually has their own type of "devotions" when people worship or pray.


They often have rituals (special things that are always done in the same way)


for certain times of the year or certain times of a person's life.




 Other words that are used for religion are "faith" and "belief system".


 Altogether, followers of religion can be known as 'believers', or 'the faithful'.


 Few people follow more than one religion at a time.


The largest religions are Christianity,


 Islam, Hinduism, Buddhism, Taoism, Sikhism, Judaism and Jainism.


 There are many other religions.

People who do not believe in any gods are called atheists.


People who say that there is no evidence are called agnostics.
