London Korean Links

Covering things Korean in London and beyond since 2006

I suppose I’ve got to read this, but what a tacky cover!

Oh dear. The story of Shin Sang-ok’s and Choi Eun-hee’s sojourn in North Korea is a compelling one, regardless of whether you think there was compulsion involved. And a book covering film in North Korea is welcome, though Johannes Schönherr has already covered the ground.

But do you have to make the book look so tacky?

A Kim Jong Il Production

Definitely one to read on the Kindle. I wouldn’t want to be seen dead with a copy of the book itself.

You can pre-order the book on or (links include LKL affiliate code). Due out in February.
