Comment:
I know Prof. Lee reads this so here goes nothing. I liked the class, I liked how Prof. Lee taught it, the dialogue presented was very insightful. Only gripe is that the class was very essay-heavy and not very homework heavy, so it was hard to gauge how you were performing really until midterm.

Comment:
BIG MISTAKE. Could barely stay awake during lecture, but when I could, it was a FAT STRUGGLE to keep up and take notes. The tests are nearly IMPOSSIBLE because they're all essays and super specific to what was in class. He is very passive aggressive when it comes to mental health and following any accommodation requirements and made rude comments.

Professor Lee is a great guy, he's funny, nice, and easy to talk to. BUT, his class was extremely difficult. You need to be prepared to take the most detailed, fastest, hardest notes of your life. The tests were way too long to complete in one hour and his lectures were long and complicated. His class was something I have nightmares about.

There is a lot of reading but he also will go over things in class. He does reading article assignments to ensure people are doing the readings but they can also be a great grade booster. He expects a lot for essays and tests so being thoughtful and detailed during readings and lectures will help a lot later on in the semester.

Prof. Lee made learning online from home bearable and he was fantastic in making sure we weren't lacking in anyway compared to the in-person classes. He cares a lot about his students and it shows during class. Do the readings, watch the lectures, ask questions in class. Even if you do the bare minimum of all three, you can still keep up easily.

I've seen some weird reviews here, so let's get this straight: if the reading is mandatory, then you should read. Why are you surprised if your grade drops because you just skimmed? Also, powerpoints are optional and not mandatory for professors. As long as you listen carefully, take notes, read, study, and ask questions, you should be fine.

Lee is really funny and interesting to listen to. Classes were 100% lecture; prepare to write everything fast because you need it all for test prep. Intense class- the study guides were HARD. Took a lot of work, and some tears, but it was good. Yes its hard, but doable if you stay on top of it. Also you dont need to read- just refer for studying.

Comment:
The summer class was a lot easier, with online forums to ask questions and discuss topics in the same vein as the week's topic. It was a three-week intensive course, which was very fast-paced but he was lenient. Attend all of the live meetings (around 5 total) and do the daily work to get a good grade.

Like he says, he's really Won in a million. Unfortunately, that's not a good thing. His lectures are not clear and are unrelated to the tests. He gives a lot of reading materials, and that's what the majority of quizzes are on, but doesn't discuss it clearly in class. I'd recommend staying away if you want to avoid a stressful class.

I loved Professor Lee and his class. You can tell that he's super passionate about his subject, and he spoke in such an energetic, funny, and engaging way that I was always entertained while learning a lot of good stuff. I typed everything he said, and so the tests were a breeze. He's accommodates for you and edits the tests with your feedback.

Professor Lee is very passionate about what he teaches. His whole class is lecturing so attendance is crucial. For Rel. 121 there were a few papers and tests. The tests are difficult with A LOT of material. With every test, he offered extra credit and provided a study guide. If you put in a fair amount of studying you'll be fine.

Comment:
Really isn't as bad as people say. Very strict when grading, but test review sheets give everything you need to be prepared for the questions. It's very helpful to have a prior understanding of the Bible. Assignments are loosely graded, only used the textbook to study for exams. You'll be fine if you study well and do extra credit

Really funny and caring, but also went very quickly through a lot of material, and was not always transparent about what was important and what was not, especially for the midterm.

The lectures are enjoyable and fun. There's a lot of readings for the class, the test often has some stuff not mentioned in class but from the textbook so gotta read. The tests are pretty writing intense, have a watch on hand too. Always ask for a study guide prior to tests: ask and it will be given, if you don't ask, you won't get it.

Won Lee has great, very entertaining lectures. He is also very funny, and makes the topic fun. His tests are almost impossibly hard, you must remember everything from the lectures, and be able to recite it on your essay exams--in 50 minutes. Overall, there is not enough time to complete his exams sufficiently, in the way he expects them to be done.

Professor Lee thinks everyone is an expert. The reading in the class is insane. I eventually began skimming and my grades showed it. They seem useless until the test hits. He doesn't provide a powerpoint just an outline that he writes on the wall. You need to take good notes to pass. Pretty much write as much as you can down. Use EC opportunity!

Prof. Lee is HILARIOUS. Super nice and laid back, lectures got somewhat redundant but I think that was just the course, not him. Awesome prof overall. Expects a lot but offers make up opportunities if you don't do well on midterm. Easily accessible outside of class. Almost switched to a religion major bc of him!

Although his lectures are engaging and you can learn alot from them, Won Lee is a pretty difficult grader. His tests all have two essay questions that take a fair amount of time to complete. His tests are nearly all writing except one matching. The Final had FOUR essay questions and your hand will feel like its falling off at the end. Good guy tho.

Amazing guy, engaging during lecture. I would take notes the whole time during his class and would spend hours studying. He failed on the first 2 tests. He expects you to remember 110% what he says. Stay away from him unless you really can put the time commitment in this class. No resources online. Honestly, I don't know how I passed his class.
