Chapter Summary

Born in Cholla province in 1938 Kim Yong-Bock was the youngest among those who were working in the spirit of Minjung theology long before the CCA conference in 1979, although they may not yet necessarily have used the term as such. After finishing his study of theology in US, Kim worked as an advisor for the CCA in Japan. In Tokyo he set up a center of Documentation for Action Groups in Asia (DAGA) and was in charge of a URM research project on the role of transnational corporations in Asia. In the autobiographical protocol, Kim expressed himself just like Ahn fully according to author's presupposition that theological biography is fundamentally an open process: "Well the story of your life is not an objective account as to what happened, the story of your life is always different, when you tell it, according to the time and according to the context"..
