For every fan of K-Pop music, Korean Wave dramas and Kimchi—or anyone intrigued by Korea and Korean culture—A Geek in Korea is a hip, new guide to the land of the Samsung smartphone and Gangnam Style. Author Dan Tudor first arrived in Korea on the eve of the 2002 World Cup when South Korea played Italy in the finals. What he saw inspired him to return and work in Korea. He served as The Economist magazine's Korea correspondent for three years, and he writes regular columns for the national daily Joongang Ilbo newspaper. Along the way, he has developed a great love and admiration for Korean culture and the Korean people. A Geek in Korea reinvents the culture guide for the Internet age. Packed with articles and photographs, it covers all the touchstones of Korean culture—from Buddhism and Confucianism to chapters on the traditional arts and disciplines like Taekwondo. There are chapters on cultural code words and norms; personal relationships; business and technology; and symbols and practices that are peculiarly Korean. A number of chapters are devoted to Korean pop culture, with attention to the stars, idols, and urban subcultures associated with them. For visitors to Korea, the author includes a mini-guide to his favorite neighborhoods in Seoul and other places of outstanding interest. Spotlighting the originality and creativity of the Koreans, debunking myths about them, and answering nagging questions like why they're so obsessed with education and success—Tudor has created the perfect book for the growing ranks of Koreaphiles in this inspired, insightful, and highly informative guide.

It’s globalised culture – but not as we know it. Fuelled by curiosity and wanderlust, reporter Doug Hendrie travels to the edges of our world to find the most unexpected – and bizarre – examples of cultural mash-ups, from the StarCraft videogame superstars of South Korea to the Clash-loving punks of Indonesia. A whirlwind world tour through surprising subcultures told with subtle humour, AmalgaNations picks up where Louis Theroux leaves off. ‘We’re used to carting our travel discoveries home, but as Doug Hendrie proves it’s a two-way trade. Particularly when high tech, sex and style make the most unexpected converts.’ Tony Wheeler ‘Travelling isn’t just about where you go but what you do when you get there: where you look, what you see, who you meet and the questions you ask. Hendrie gets all this right and more in a book which doesn’t just take us places but into what feels like the future - a future that is here, now.’ Sophie Cunningham ‘Hendrie challenges stereotypes, celebrates differences and shows that, at base, what makes us all human is our ability to creatively adapt to and engage with our increasingly interconnected world.’ Damien Kingsbury ‘Doug Hendrie’s personal and insightful account of the connections between the West and other cultures exposes hidden truths about our global village.’ Jacqueline Kent ‘From Ghana’s sorcery, scams and soft- porn film industry to gay power in the Philippines ... Welcome to Doug Hendrie’s world tour of rebirthed cultures.’ Christopher Kremmer
