Best seller Trends in the Four Biggest Online Bookstores in Korea

 

2022.08.01

 

Quite familiar books could be found on the best seller’s list for the 2nd week of July. For example, The Uncanny Convenience Store by Kim Ho-Yeon has been continuously soothing the hearts of its readers, and Farewell by Kim Young-Ha is still beloved by readers. Meanwhile, Kim Yonggyun and Kim Yonggyuns debuted on Aladdin’s “Reader’s Book Fund” last June. The book, published in the hope of ensuring the safety of workers and preventing unfortunate accidents, is an essential book for the world that we should all read.

Meanwhile, different genres have also caught readers’ attention, such as non-fiction, self-help, and humanities books. For example, Kim Da-Seul’s Manage Your Feelings to Manage Your Life teaches how important it is to take care of one’s feelings, guiding readers to take more interest in their emotions. Also, Counter Your Life, which suggests a better way of life based on the writer’s own successful experiences, has been faithfully fulfilling its role as a self-help book. Plus, Rhyu Si-Min’s new title European City Tour 2 published in July, is a book that kills two birds with one stone – birds of art and philosophy – in times where traveling is yet limited due to the pandemic.
While Korea is in the middle of the stifling summer, the season has also arrived on the list of best selling books for preschool children. For instance, The Watermelon Pool by Bonsoir Lune has placed itself at the high-end of four major online bookstores in Korea with its unique and comforting illustrations. You will find yourself relieved from the scorching heat as you spend time in the cool watermelon pool. Also, The Story of How the Korean Shaved Ice Dessert was Born by Lee Ji-Eun is a book that makes its readers forget the sizzling heat of summer for a moment. The book, refreshing just by its title, presents creative imagination about shaved ice dessert called patbingsu (red bean shaved ice) and cools readers’ hearts as if they have just taken a scoop of it.
