2nd Week, April

Bestseller Trends in the Four Biggest Online Bookstores in Korea

 

2020.05.04

 

In the second week of April 2020, Korea welcomed another year of warm spring, but social distancing was ongoing due to COVID-19. People refrain from going out and are staying longer at home; amidst such situation, the number ten integrated best seller Lower-body Balance Stretching catches our eyes. Published in March last year, this book introduces simple stretching movements that readers can easily follow indoors. It seems that Korean readers are reading books related to health and exercise tips that they can follow at home, as outdoor activities and workouts are limited.
Along with this book, the integrated list of bestsellers of four major online bookstores in Korea includes books that have been steadily keeping their place on the list and newly added books as well. 1cm Diving, When the Weather is Fine, You’re Right, and Seol Min-Suk’s Great Adventure in Korean History 13 have been steadily loved by readers since their publication. Notably, various genres from essays to novels, liberal arts, and children’s books are consistently sought by readers.
Having entered the integrated rank of bestsellers recently and soon after hitting the first place, The Having was first published in the US and sought by global readers, which was the first time for a Korean book to be doing so. The sub-title of the book is “The Secret Art of Feeling and Growing Rich,” and readers comment that the book provides bountiful tips that practically help change their lives. Also, the fourth series of Hunhan Nammae that targets children became a bestseller right after its publication. The series features episodes about “Hunhan Nammae”, famous Youtubers in Korea; its new series always tops the list among domestic bestsellers providing pleasant joy to the children readers.

 

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