POP WARS in London (Links, that is)

Philip Gowman at London Korea Links was nice enough to review POP GOES KOREA -- and I am very proud to say that he kindly gave the book five stars (out of five, I presume). Truly a wise and wonderful man, that Mr. Gowman.

Philip has a good-sized review and covers a wide range of issues from the book. He also calls POP GOES KOREA "lively", "stimulating" and "unrepentant" (at various points in the post... hope I am not taking those words too out of context). If I may excerpt a choice summary of his review:
Yes, this book might not be what fans are expecting, but there’s plenty of stimulating entertainment here for pop culture consumers as well as those who make a living in the industry, and cultural studies academics studying a phenomenon which might never have existed. It’s a book which you will want to read a second time.

Very nice. I am such a good mood now that I think I will not worry about the dweeb of a splogger who has been ripping off this site (at least for a couple of days).

Yup, that's 5 out of 5.
