A Geek in Korea: Discovering Asia's New Kingdom of Cool
About A Geek in Korea: Discovering Asia's New Kingdom of Cool
A Geek in Korea is packed with articles and photographs, and covers all the touchstones of Korean culture - from Buddhism and Confucianism to chapters on the traditional arts and disciplines like Taekwondo. There are chapters on cultural code words and norms, personal relationships, business and technology, and symbols and practices that are peculiarly Korean. A number of chapters are devoted to Korean pop culture, with attention to the stars, idols, and urban subcultures associated with them. For visitors to Korea, the author includes a mini-guide to his favorite neighborhoods in Seoul and other places of outstanding interest.
