Korean Poetry: Ko Un (고은)

Ko Un (고은) is probably one of Korea's most famous poets. His name is often cited as a potential Nobel laureate. He grew up during the Japanese colonial period and was forced to learn Japanese as a first language, but managed to learn Korean from a neighbor. After the Korean War, he became a Buddhist priest for 10 years.
