3. Book Intro

Things you can see again once you are alone. The world begins with seeing things. This means you will get to know a new world when you start to see things you couldn't before. The writer remembers the experiences of One Day as "special." A child suddenly hears a voice calling to her and gets to meet people who have disappeared again. A new world has opened up for the child. How was this possible? Perhaps the unfamiliar feeling, "I'm really bored," enabled unknown things to be seen.

3. Book Intro

Each of us has a vessel that can be used to carry words. Depending on the conditions of these vessels, the levels of speech and the depth of relationships vary dramatically. Those with generous vessels of speech can carry a lot of words. From deep vessels, words do not leak out easily. Also, wide vessels mean it is easy to pick out words that you need. For those with narrow and shallow vessels, speech often becomes superfluous and too many unnecessary words are used. This is not simply a difference in speech techniques. Rather, the difference lies in the vessels of speech that we shape throughout life

3. Book Intro

From the day a child is born until he or she attends a day care center, the vast majority of the child's conversations are with the mother. Depending on the manner in which the mother speaks, the child's self-esteem may improve or diminish and be emotionally healed or even scarred. Fruitful Mother-Child Communication consoles mothers feeling strained from parenting duties and also introduces conversational techniques that help restore the child's self-esteem.
Heangeun Lee, the author, has long been conducting dialogue training for parents and teachers. Fruitful Mother-Child Communication includes her training cases, topics she discussed on Moms Radio, and an abundance of childcare tips that can be applied in real life.
No mother would ever want to hurt her child. The mother will at some point unintentionally hurt the child through her words, however, and she will no doubt feel disheartened and blame herself. One of the most exhausting aspects of childcare is when we discover shortcomings about ourselves that are not easily remedied even through considerable effort. This is why a mother needs Fruitful Mother-Child Communication in her life. It introduces ways for a mother to understand and sympathize with oneself and describes possible action plans and communication methods for a multitude of problems she faces when raising a child.
If a mother can remind herself of this book when faced with an issue or try to consciously follow its 34 conversational points instead of blurting out whatever comes into mind without forethought, she will will be able to wisely tackle nearly any childcare challenge.

3. Book Intro

The place where a gentle breeze and a destructive typhoon coexist is the new literary realm established by Hwang Jengeun. I’ll Go On was serially published in the Changjak- gwa-Bipyeong magazine from autumn of 2012 to the summer of 2013 under the title “SoraNanaNaki.” For about a year after publishing the last episode in the magazine, Hwang devoted herself to rewrite the story, which added more richness and allowed readers to even feel the breath of the main characters Sora, Nana, and Naki through sophisticated descriptions on their emotions.
Each chapter is narrated by Sora, Nana, or Naki, and the story structure is sequentially organized. I’ll Go On illustrates the different feelings of the three characters, who are in the same place at the same time in a way that allows readers to notice the difference in emotional temperatures between them. An interesting reading experience is created through the use of fictional devices in this novel to reveal the innermost feelings of Sora and Nana as well as the differences in their memories. Readers will admire the author’s exceptional ability to maintain suspense while also portraying every gesture of the characters and their emotion-packed words. The book also showcases how Hwang has outdone herself in her latest work. Literary critic Shin Hyeongcheol noted that “books written by Hwang are now scary even to me” in the commentary for the Young Writer Award. Shin would not be the only one who feels admiration and awe for Hwang’s stories, however. It is not difficult to hear that many people even in the literary circle are looking forward to her next story. Where do her limits lie? Where will her succinct and beautiful sentences lead us?

3. Book Intro

The designer couple, Yulri and Takku, are in their 7th year of marriage and have been garnering sensational reactions from their Instagram toon series, Nuletoon. ​One day, they set out to live for three months in Chiang Mai.
Rather than their romantic expectations, the first thing that welcomed them in Thailand was the burning temperature and the cutthroat airport taxi drivers. There were many obstacles Yulri and Takku had to overcome, so they looked for a place that matched their budget, agonized over food that did not fit their tastes, learned to get used to the days without work, and found a way to live a completely new life for 89 days.
However, this "short" stay of three months in Chiang Mai allowed Yulri and Takku to obtain their "first" house, become attracted to Thai food, and expand their careers as "digital nomads." Through experiences like these, they were able to achieve a work-life balance that they couldn't in Korea. Most of all, the leisurely, comforting days and warmth of people greeting each other with smiles allowed them to grasp a lifestyle they had been looking for. Yulri and Takku describe their 89 lovely days in Chiang Mai in the combination of comic and essay.
Rather than a short visit that only lasts a few days, this was a period of "living" in a place, filling up a part of life through a leisurely stay. Just as they did, Yulri and Takku recommend that people who visit Chiang Mai "walk slowly" so they will be able to better understand the smiles and warmth that the people of city showed to them.
This book features lovely drawings, honest writing and photos of the experiences the two had in Chiang Mai. The witty map attached to the book was drawn by the authors, and there are tips and episodes that will certainly help people who visit Chiang Mai for the first time. Most of all, the descriptions of getting a place to live, shopping and good restaurants are full of the insight that comes from the author's unique perspectives.
Through Yulri and Takku's story of three months spent living in Chiang Mai, readers will be able to feel both a warmth and the desire to leave to a place.

Welcome. This is your paradise.
I have been waiting for you for quite some time.

This is the lastest book of So Yunkyung, who has been staring at the other side of the safe, sleek world. The blend of dense pen lines and digital colors creates a sensation both throbbing and overwhelming at the same time. The story begins with a family going on vacation. After the tiring flight to their destination, the first thing to welcome them is an air of unfamiliarity. A disinfected interior and fancy decorations, great-tasting delicacies and eye-catching performances. Everything they need is prepared. As the family finds themselves in an atmosphere that provides them escape from their daily routine, the reader is met with a new narrator. Who is this voice that we meet in the middle of the story? This voice that has entered the story like an uninvited guest invites us to a world outside of the straight path towards Hotel Paradise.

3. Book Intro

Koreans sit cross-legged at a table full of food, eat jjigae (stew) together with a spoon and say that it is best served when a glass cup is passed around. The Korean way of eating is unfamiliar and strange to the eyes of foreigners. From when did Koreans eat like this? Professor Joo Young-ha, who has examined the Korean food culture history with the idea, ‘Food as a meal is everyday, but food as culture and history is humanities,’ looks at and traces the origin of the ‘Korean way of eating’ for the first time.
Why do they take off shoes and eat in a room? Why do they sit cross-legged? Why do they eat at a low table? Why does every household have a large dining table? Why is there an ideal spot for a get-together? Why did so many pottery vessels disappear? Why do they scoop rice into a stainless steel bowl? Why do they use a spoon and chopsticks together? Why do they eat at a table full of food? Why do they eat rice and side dishes at once? Why do they have to have coffee after a meal? Why do they pass around a glass cup? Why do they drink with a meal? The Korean way of eating that looks okay to Koreans is unfamiliar and strange to foreigners. Find the answers to these questions and more in this book.
This book compares the Korean way of eating to that of neighboring Asian countries as well as several European countries from ancient times to modern times and thereby examines what historical process Koreans went through to form the Korean way of eating today by means of the research method of comparative cultural history. You will meet not only the history of the Korean way of eating from the moment people take off shoes and sit in a restaurant to the moment they leave with a cup of coffee in hand as dessert, but also a true Korean food culture through stories about the Korean eating habits, table setting and changing appetites.

Dawn, Morning, Noon, and Evening—the children of light and darkness—have been given a wonderful gift from time. But Midnight hasn’t received anything. As Midnight wallows in sorrow, Dawn, Morning, Noon, and Evening each offer a gift to Midnight. The world of Midnight grows more beautiful each day, and Midnight offers parts of itself to the others. Then, surprisingly, all of them get to have shadows. Midnight is no longer lonely even when it's alone and is now able to have happy dreams every night. Dawn, Morning, Noon, and Evening had the beautiful thought to share what they had with others, and Midnight also had the beautiful thought of sharing things with others even when it didn't have much to give away.
Midnight's Gift describes the beautiful gifts given by time and nature as well as a thankful heart that doesn’t mind sharing things with others. Along with the passage of time, nature changes every second. For 24 hours and over the four seasons in a year, nature continues to change and share its beauty with the world.
