ABSTRACT. Shimcheong is a concept that captures feeling in-between a person and the Other—hence it is the core of a dialogical relation. At the level of conceptual comparison, shimcheong is very similar to empathy. As experience, shimcheong is very distinguishable-- it shows phenomenological flow of mind going beyond the subjective experience. The immediate feeling state combined with reflective thinking and judgment is still subjective and private.
