About This Book
"Cho Han ji," recently completed series by novelist Yi Mun-yol, dates back to BC 218 and illustrates the deadly competition, strategies and leadership of the Han Dynasty's Liu Bang and Chin Dynasty's Xiang Yu who both wished to reunite China. The novel continues until Liu Bang finally succeeds in BC 202. Unlike Yi's other works, such as "Romance of the Three Kingdoms," "Cho Han ji" is not based on an original text. The author wrote his version based on "Records on the Grand Historian," by Chinese scholar Sima Qian, and used other ancient books and scripts for additional information. "It's a historic novel, so it's not all fiction. I had to look up historical information to illustrate certain events in the novel," the 60-year-old Yi said. Liu Bang and Xiang Yu's drastically different war strategies and tactics are an interesting feature of the book. According to history, Liu Bang was laid back and composed, while Xiang Yu was as strong as an ox, but also arrogant. "The leadership is what readers should focus on when reading. They both have very different personalities and leadership strategies, so comparing the two is interesting," said Yi.
