- B.A. from Seoul National University
Soojung completed her B.A. and M.A. at Seoul National University focusing on the relations between the Northern Dynasties and nomads in addition to their influence on imperial women in medieval China. However, her main interests are not only restricted to that of early and medieval Chinese history and China's relations with surrounding states. She is also sympathetic to early medieval European history, which kindles her inspiration for her ongoing exploration of ethnicity in pre-modern Chinese history.
