Attention, book lovers! KoreAm is partnering with Tuttle Publishing to bring you some exciting new titles by internationally recognized authors and thought leaders in Korean language, culture, art, history and business. Did we mention these books are being offered to you for free? We will be giving away books every month from now until the end of 2014.
We’re going to start the giveaway with Mark James Russell’s K-Pop Now!: The Korean Music Revolution, a visual compendium of all the stars in the K-pop universe. Choe Sang-Hun, the New York Times Korea correspondent, said this about the book: “With K-pop being the most talked-about product coming out of Korea today, Koreans and non-Koreans alike ask: So what is K-pop? Between the covers of this book, you will find the closest thing you can get to an answer. This is a comprehensive and timely guidebook on K-pop by someone who can describe and explain it better than any other person I know, by a Western expert who has been following K-pop more closely and with more passion than Koreans.”
Russell, who has lived in Korea since 1996, has covered Korean pop culture for the New York Times, Billboard and Newsweek.
Three copies of this book are up for grabs. All you have to do is tweet at us (@KoreAm) with photo proof of why you’re one of the biggest K-pop fans in the world—or want to be. Show us a poster of a favorite boy or girl group, snap a shot of your album collection, or be creative and surprise us!
Whatever it is, tweet it at us with the hashtag #KpopRevolution, or comment on the article below with your photo (click the small icon to upload images). You can also reply to the Facebook post on the KoreAm page and attach a photo along with your comment.
Winners will be selected on Wednesday, Aug. 6, by the K-pop-savvy members of the KoreAm staff. Those chosen will be notified via Twitter and on Facebook.
