Mayor's Hope Journal

  • “‘New Admonitions on Governing the People’ of Seoul”
    [Mayor Park Won Soon’s Hope Journal 476]

    A couple years ago or so, we took “Mokninsimseo” (Admonitions on Governing the People) written by Dasan Jeong Yakyong and rewrote it into “Shin Mokninsimseo” (New Admonitions on Governing the People), adding graphs, images, and some other features so that it would be more applicable for modern times. A few days ago, when I visited a publisher in Hongdae, they mentioned that they were the ones that had printed the book.

    Apparently, this book has now become incredibly popular, and regional governments and companies are adapting the book into their own versions. In this way, the city of Seoul is undergoing its own type of reform! Try using it in your organization too!
