Confucianization

In modern times, many would classify Korea as a Confucian society. From observing annual ancestor rituals to listening to the way Koreans use honorifics in everyday speech, one cannot go far without seeing, hearing, feeling, or even tasting Confucianism’s influence. Moreover, this evolution into a nation that adheres to Confucian culture — or Korea’s “Confucianization”— came only after centuries of painstaking effort by Confucian scholars.
