Suh Nam-Dong

(b. c. 1920)
   Theologian.
   Suh Nam-Dong is a former professor of Systematic Theology at Yonsei University, Korea, and he is known as an important proponent of Min-Jung theology. Central to his thinking is the concept of han. He defines this as the underlying feeling of both despair and hope, which he perceives in the consciousness of the Korean people. He sees han as the language of the minjung, the oppressed, and he suggests it as a basis for a developed Asian liberation theology.
