3. Book Intro

 

Busan is a city where the oldest and the newest coexist. The lowest road on the highest place in the city is called Sanbok Road. The streets are unorganized, making it easy for someone to get lost, the alleys are too narrow for even one person to pass through, and a number of houses stand in these alleys. Walking in these areas, you can encounter the most ordinary stories during daytime and the most beautiful nightscapes at night.
The beach is the first thing that comes to people’s minds when they think of Busan. Haeundae, Gwanganri, or Taejongdae, to be specific. But actually, Busan is surrounded more by hills and mountains than flat areas. That is why an array of houses is closely packed together on the hilly areas even when there is not much space to build a house. This also explains why there are so many steep stairs in Busan.
Sanbok Road is a unique road that goes around the mountainside, and this road has become one of the most popular travel spots in Busan. The number of visitors have been also skyrocketing. Several major news organizations such as Dong-a Ilbo, The Hankyore, The Chosun Ilbo, and Hankook Ilbo have covered Sanbok Road from different perspectives. Sanbok Road is not just a road but a repository of historical evidence of modern and contemporary Korea, telling people the stories buried within the area. In addition, Sanbok's Road appeals to visitors with its simplicity and warmth that they can never experience in the fancy beach.
Sanbok Road Story is the first travel book that covers only Sanbok Road. It is written by Son Minsu who designed Sanbok Road travel program for the first time while traveling himself.

3. Book Intro

 

Busan was at the center of it all during some noteworthy times of history, such as the Japanese Colonial Period, the Korean War, and modern Korean history. For that reason, the Japanese food culture entered the lives of the people of Busan during the Colonial era and during the Korean War; furthermore, regional foods of different refugees were also introduced to Busan. Consequently, to this day there remain unique blends of diverse food. Choi Wonjun, poet and food columnist has explored the people, history, and culture of Busan through this phenomenon of food and published the book, The Busan Gastronomy Project.
Like a traveler, the author wandered around Busan, trying out its food. In the book, he has come up with forty-seven types of food according to the four regions of Nakdong River, Gijang, Central City, and Alley. He introduces the seaweed from Nakdong River that has an amazing flavor, for it is from the area where the river meets the sea, and the renowned Gupo noodles from the Gupo Market. From the region of Gijang, a particular type of fish with its refreshing taste of sea, and Korean beef that melts in your mouth are presented.
In the Central City section, the author talks about the humble food that was brought by the refugees during the Korean War. Shark dish and beef tripe dishes were the inevitable food that were born of a particular era but the restaurants have carried on their famed heritage, embracing the sadness of the times not only of Busan but also of Korea in general. He also goes into how the pork soup and milmyeon (the wheat noodles) that were not original to Busan but became one of the most popular dishes there, explaining how it was created, became widespread, and its method of cooking.

3. Book Intro

 

How about a little walk to give your mind and body a stretch?
Light and easy half-day trips.
This book introduces the concept of the short “walking trip,” for those who can’t spare much money, time or mind.
A walking trip feels more like a leisurely stroll where you are not bound by travel itineraries. It also frees you from tight schedules, complications of trip-packing and preparing, and allows for a more generous travel budget. We often think that we must do certain things to make a trip complete. Is it true that we must cross off everything on our to-do list to make a trip a successful one? When it is not work-related we travel for pleasure, and walking trips are the perfect way to achieve this goal.
Check out the six chapters that illustrate different concepts of traveling. Roads for walking alone, roads for walking with a companion, roads close to the Seoul metropolitan area, roads filled with phytoncide, and choose the one that best fits your travel needs. Each chapter starts by introducing the course and must-stroll spots. Readers can read about ways to get to their destination, information about the course, and also eating spots and nearby attractions. Most walking courses take between 40 minutes and 2 hours, but this is merely an average estimate. How much of the course is to be explored is entirely up to the traveler. Have you chosen your destination? Then just grab a bottle of water and walking shoes, and you’re good to go. Let us embark on this short, but truly healing walking trip, together.

3. Book Intro

 

The popularity of Korean dramas spread to China with the advent of Song Joong-ki in “The Sun's Descendants”, Kim Soo-hyun in “You from the Star”, Lee Min-ho in “Heirs”, and Lee Jong-seok in “W”.
Tourists who are interested in the Korean Wave travel to the places related to K-drama, and even purchase products related to it.
The author went to the drama shooting locations for several years to experience them.
More than 100 photos of the shooting locations add vividness and stimulate the desire to travel.
The book introduces highly rated dramas and emotionally conveys the locations and story of the dramas to the fans.
I hope that your imagination becomes the reality while the book delivers you realistic information rather than appreciations to the dramas created based on imaginations.
Traveling through places where the main characters play, eat, and live will be a dreamy and pleasant walk for those who enjoy dramas and media.

There is a saying, "Life is a travel." Traveling in Gyeongju begins with visiting the town's royal tombs that are as big as a small mountain. Looking deep into the slowly accumulated time embodied in the royal tombs, stone towers, stone Buddhas, and temple sites arouses unique inspiration and expands the window of thought. Sometimes, we find the dreams of future in the past. That is also the purpose of traveling Gyeongju, the city of history and culture. In the first volume, the book introduces the town area centering around the Daereungwon Ancient Tombs, Go-Bun Park, and historic sites in the whole area of the Cheomseongdae Observatory, as well as things to enjoy around the Bomun Tourist Complex; Gyeongju EXPO, Gyeongju Folk Craft Village, etc. on Bobul-ro; and the Haeparang Road that stretches from Yangnam to Gampo.
