The English version of top Hallyu star Bae Yong-joon’s photo essay “A Journey in Search of Korea’s Beauty” will go on sale next month, according to his agency KEYEAST on Tuesday.
“A Journey in Search of Korea’s Beauty” will be published in English, going on sale in the United States in late December and then in Europe, starting with Germany, in January.
“We received numerous inquiries regarding the publication of the book in English after the book was released in Korea last year. The book will guide foreigners on the past and current traditions of Korea,” an official from publication house Hollym Corp., Publishers was quoted as saying.
Meanwhile, the publication of “A Journey in Search of Korea’s Beauty,” will be announced at a bazaar event held today by the Seoul International Women’s Association.
The book, containing photographs of various cultural artisans and introductions to Korean culture and travel locations, was first released in September last year and has been printed in Korean, Japanese, Taiwanese and Chinese.
It has also been made into a television documentary showing Bae’s travels through a video featuring the photographs and writings from the photo essay.
