- Have you ever been to historical museums?
I rarely go to museums of any type, but I visited a lot of historical museums when I was an exchange student in the United Kingdom. To my surprise, there are historical museums in every city in the UK that are open to the public without charge. I learned many historical facts about the Great Britain thanks to these museums.
- Do you like history?
Definitely. History was my favorite subject in senior high school. Unlike science which is all about calculus and formula, history tells us all kinds of interesting, exciting or tragic stories of human’s past. I am all crazy about tales.
- When was the last time you read about history?
Since I am an English major, I read British history voraciously back in college. It all started by accident when I binge-watched the popular British TV series Downton Abbey. The exquisite clothes, etiquette and decoration shown in the TV series captured my full attention. So I read about the making of the Great Britain.
- Did you like history when you were young?
My answer is yes. I guess it is all because my father is a voracious reader of history. When I was alone at home, I used to pull out a thick book from my father’s tall and large bookshelf and thumb through the pages with illustrations and cartoons. In most cases, the book in my hands was a history book.
