2022.07.04

 

Familiar titles could be found on the best sellers' list for the first week of June this year. Starting with writer Kim Young-Ha who took first place with Farewell, his latest novel in 9 years, writer Kim Hoon's novel collection, and the new title by writer Kim Jae-Sik who has been a star author among non-fiction fans, put their names among the top 10. Kim Hoon's Alone Over There is his second novel collection released 16 years after his Rivers and Mountains Without End (Munhakdongne). Just like he says, "I wrote this story as one of your neighbors," the book talks about the joy and sorrow of our close neighbors. Meanwhile, writer Kim Jae-Sik has been a well-loved writer in Korea, as a representative essayist, while his five non-fiction books have become best sellers in the past. Back with a new title, It's Okay to be Me after 2 years, he candidly shares insights into life throughout the book and sends warm messages to his readers.
On the other hand, 2 humanities books have joined the top 10 best sellers as well. For example, Choi Jae-Cheon's Tips to Studying is a book that professor Choi, who has been a sincere observer and researcher of animals and humans, has prepared for the past 10 years. It is a good organization of his thoughts about studying that is most needed in this era. With keen insight into the fields of natural science and humanities, he takes an in-depth look at why studying is important and how it influences our lives through his new title. Meanwhile, Emotional Expressions has been published with the subtitle "Studying Emotional expressions to Clarify Vague Feelings and Live a Better Life," merging language and psychological domains. The book encourages you to reflect on your feelings while introducing various emotional expressions, which could provide great assistance to readers with a strong interest in writing.

Among the bestselling art books, the script books of Our Blues (2 volumes) - a popular drama series written by Noh Hee-Kyung, and My Mister - a drama picked as the "lifetime drama" among viewers, winning prestigious awards in Korea and abroad, took the top 3 places. The huge popularity of the two dramas on Netflix worldwide led to high sales of their script books. Meanwhile, Awkward Story About Art 7 is a book about the history of art, in which the writer vividly describes how he went to Rome for an investigation on the ground. By making good use of various photographs, timelines, and QR codes to support a better explanation of art, the book has received positive reviews from its readers.

 

* The rank of best sellers below was organized after integrating domestic best sellers in the first week of June from the four biggest online bookstores in Korea – Kyobo Bookstore, Aladdin, Yes 24, and Interpark.
