I earned an MA degree in the Department of History at Sungkyunkwan University in 2011.
In 2016, I began the PhD program at UBC. My current research focuses on international relations between Korea and Japan in the late 19th century (1876~1910). One of the main topics for my future dissertation is the military exchange between these two nations. My unforgettable experience in the Korean army might have led me to this topic. In May 2020, I successfully completed the intensive Japanese language program at the Inter-University Center for Japanese Language Studies in Yokohama, Japan.
