The Rewards of Honesty

The New York Times published an article – which was re-published in the local papers – about a former mathematics professor Kim Myungho who self-published a book decrying the Korean judiciary. (Note the word “published” appeared thrice in the previous sentence.) In fact a movie already seen by several millions was made about Kim who contested a wrongful dismissal against his University.

That piqued me and googling “Kim Myungho professor” which incidentally was suggested by google, lead to this page which is a reprint of a letter published (that word again!) in the Math Intelligencer in 1997. Apparently everything began when Kim spotted an erroneous exam problem. Certainly some food for thought.

    Managed to watch the above mentioned movie, titled “unbowed” on a noisy aeroplane via a 7 inch monitor at 2am en route to India. I enjoyed it thoroughly in spite of the circumstances.
