Hanyang University selected Professor Jung Min, from the Departement of Korean Language & Literature, as the laureate of the 8th Paiknam Great Scholar Award for 2020.

The Paiknam Great Scholar Award was created to honor the spirit of Doctor Paiknam Kim Yeon-Jun (1914~2018), who established Hanyang University under the creed of Love in Deed and Truth and worked his life to benefit the education industry. This award has been given to scholars with great achievements in education and research.

Professor Jung, one of the representative researchers in the field of humanities in Korea, conducted his research focused on Yeon-a Park Ji-won and Dasan Jung Yak-yong during the Josun Dynasty, focusing his study on the cultural-historical approach on intelligence tendencies and information editing methods of 18th-century intellectuals. Professor Jung has authored more than 70 books and Korean translations.

He has received many academic awards including the Wol-bong Academic Award of 2015, the Jihun Korean Academic Award, the Woo-ho Humanities Award, and more. He has also been selected many times as best lecturer and best teacher, adding his name to the Hanyang University Hall of Fame as a 2019 Well-known lecturer.

Professor Jung mentioned that "the so-called Big-Bang experience of knowledge during the 18th century could provide us with a model that we can use to handle our information-intensive society of this era, and I want to find theoretical research that can provide us with the solution of the social problems through the people's perspectives and knowledge of the 18th century. The past is not only the older future, but it is also the present of that time."

The award ceremony was held on the 15th, the 81st anniversary of Hanyang University, taking place at the Paiknam Music Hall.
