Joel and Hana celebrate Christmas the way J. Torres says a lot of Koreans do: by importing the secular trappings of the holiday. So there are presents, cookies, and actual conversation, which is something these two characters barely do.I also enjoyed the beginning essay on other Korean holidays, and the cheery Korean teen that discusses different kinds of Korean dating. This book is way better as a cultural introduction to Korea than as, oh, a love story.
A fun look at Korean life and customs. We meet Joel who is teaching English and feeling homesick. This series is a great look at how it feels to live in asia; how you love and hate it at times. Joel finds something new to love about living in Korea when he meets a new girl. The art is good and the story is entertaining and compelling.
