First Review for POP GOES KOREA

Another personal milestone -- the first online review of POP GOES KOREA. Kind of exciting to get that kind of feedback, especially from someone who I do not know. And best of all, it is a pretty good review.

POP GOES KOREA is reviewed alongside East Asian Pop Culture: Analysing the Korean Wave (Hong Kong University Press), and the reviewer says:
Both books are highly recommended and complement each other — but Pop Goes Korea is a better starting point for the average reader looking for a basic understanding of Korean pop culture.

Nice.

Oh, my book was also briefly mentioned in a post at Ain't It Cool, although it was not reviewed. Still, it feels good to be noticed.

Sweet!

Not only a review, but a good one, and with the opportunity for some Schadenfreude built right in. ;-)

Thanks for noticing The Learned Fangirl's book review of Pop Goes Korea!

Hey, man, congratulations! I heard this book was out from Brian Yecies, a while back, when I last saw him in Seoul. He was praising it.

Now, off to add it to my next order list...
