All You Need to Know About the Korean Culture

by Jaehong Kim

Book Image Not Available Book Image Not Available
Overview
As someone who was born and raised in South Korea virtually my entire life, I was quite surprised when I made friends in America who weren't entirely familiar with Korean culture. Korean culture was never something that I had to study or explain to anyone when I lived back in Seoul. That all changed when I stepped foot in the United States as a study abroad student. I went through multiple identity crises, questioning things like: "Who am I?",  "Where am I from?",  "What's the difference between the United States and South Korea?" I was also swamped with questions from my classmates regarding Korea - its pop culture, food, tradition, relationship dynamics, and so on. I soon concluded that I needed to have a strong understanding of my own background to be able to figure out my identity as well as explain my culture to others. After intense and thorough research, I wrote this book to answer some of the most commonly asked questions that I received from my American friends. I hope you understand that this book is a mix of personal experiences and objective research. I also hope that you can grow further interest in Korea through this trip that I have prepared for us!
