Farewell to faux pas!

South Korea is one of the greatest economic success stories of the past 60 years, and more and more Westerners are traveling to this bustling, modern country for business and pleasure. But no matter why you visit, an understanding of Korea's etiquette and culture is essential to an enjoyable and successful trip.

Known as "the Hermit Kingdom" until the final decades of the ninteenth century because it kept its doors closed to the outside world, Korea wasn't exposed to international influences until the mid–twentieth century. Perhaps this is why may of the traditional aspects of Korea's culture have been preserved in spite of the explosion of modernity in recent times. Today Korea's age–old culture has combined with the ultramodern Western ways and conveniences to transform the country into one of the world's most popular destinations.

With Etiquette Guide to Korea, you'll never need to worry about making an embarrassing mistake—this authoritative guide covers everything the courteous traveler needs to know, including the importance of names and how to use them, shaking hands versus bowing, table manners for celebrations and everyday meals, and how to negotiate in Korea.

Also included are invaluable lists of Korean vocabulary and helpful phrases, making this book the most important item you can pack for your trip or extended stay in Korea.

Book News Annotation:

Tourism is now one of the main industries in a country once known as the "Hermit Kingdom." The author of Korean Business Etiquette and other books on how to communicate in Asia without committing embarrassing faux pas provides valuable tips on personal and business etiquette. He includes information on traditional Korean values (e.g., the primacy of kibun, feelings), and transliterated common expressions. Annotation ©2009 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)

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.
