2004 Yu, JongHo.  제인 에어 / Jane Eyre. Seoul: 민음사 (Donghwa Press).  Yu JongHo first published a translation of Jane Eyre in 1970, but he substantially revised it in 2004 after it was awarded the Best Translation of British Classics Prize. In the second version, modern Korean terms take the place of the ornate, literary Chinese vocabulary employed in the first translation: further discussion is here.  We quote from the revised version.
