Jen’s Grandparents

Talk about yangban!
This is a picture of Jen’s maternal grandfather and grandmother. He was a History professor who later became chancellor of a university in Seoul. The clothes they are wearing indicate their social and economic status in a time when Korea was desparately poor.
He is really looking the part of the academic, with the glasses and the W.B. Yeats shock of hair.
