I presented a lecture on "Hong Jong-u (1850-1913) and the origins of Korean francophonie" at the Alliance française in Seoul Tuesday 28th March 2017. The lecture was organised during the Francophonie festival week and at the occasion of the publication by Atelier des Cahiers of two of the texts printed in France in 1892 and 1895, probably the first literary Korean texts ever published in a Western language: "Le Printemps parfumé, suivi du Bois sec refleuri". I edited that book, which include an introduction by Brother Anthony of Taizé (RASK President), and articles published at that time in France about Hong and his books.
