Suhyun Ahn is interested in analyzing and evaluating the philosophical arguments in Korean neo-Confucianism while staying attentive to their historical and cultural context. He is especially drawn to the metaphysical and political aspects of the thoughts and has been exploring various topics ranging from the metaphysical receptions of Yijing to the theories about governance. Suhyun is also an avid follower of contemporary Korean politics, and he wishes that his research will cast light on modern political issues as well.

In his spare time, Suhyun translates contemporary Korean poetry, and he is currently working on Kim Hyun's Glory Hole.
