峨山 鄭周永

Early 1930s. Chung Juyung (right) and his younger brother Chung Soonyung (middle). At this time he was fascinated with the novel ‘Soil’ which was published serially in the Donga Daily News. He considered it a true story, and wanted, like the book’s hero, Heo Seung, to become a lawyer after passing the Higher Civil Service Examination. The legal knowledge he gained at that time was very helpful for his business later on.
