I recently finished a great book called Korea – A Quick Guide to Customs & Etiquette by James Hoare. This book discusses the ins and outs of life in Korea – both North and South – for the tourist or long term visitor. Hoare talks about beliefs, customs, and taboos, Koreans at home, travelling, food and drink, business, communicating, and much more.
It is a very quick read – but a great resource.
I highly recommend checking to see if your library has it – or if you want your own copy – it is on sale on Amazon right now.
Now if I could only learn to speak some Korean… any ideas?
