A Geek in Korea: Discovering Asia’s New Kingdom of Cool
South Korea has become cool in the last decade or so. The emergence of K-Pop and the popularity of Korean idols like Bae Yong-poon contribute partially to this cool Korea but beyond these, there is the Samsung smartphone and electronics. The transition from a poor agricultural country without any natural resources to a successful developed country in a matter of decades has made everyone sit up and watch South Korea. Why is South Korea able to transform itself from a war-ravaged and highly authoritarian country to the current impressive and successful democratic nation?
In A Geek in Korea, the author is able to show the real Korea through a wide array of topics in short, compelling articles accompanied by numerous sidebars and photographs. Designed to appeal to the generations of Westerners who grew up on Korean idols and K-Pop, Samsung smartphones and electronics, A Geek in Korea reinvents the culture guide for readers in the Internet age.
