Etiquette Guide to Korea: Know the Rules That Make the Difference! by Boye De Mente
Etiquette Guide to Korea: Know the Rules That Make the Difference!

loonylunalovegood, August 20, 2011

This was a very good introduction to proper etiquette in Korea. It could have gone more in depth, but I found it to be very entertaining and informative. It gave a good background into the Korean culture and why their customs are the way they are, but left me wanting to know more. All in all, it was a good light read and would be very useful for a tourist or business (wo)man to read in-flight en route to Korea if they just want to know enough to get along without major etiquette problems.
