Bestseller Trends in the Four Biggest Online Bookstores in Korea

 

2021.09.06

 

It’s August in Korea – the breeze has replaced the hot heat of the air. There has also been a fresh breeze in the Korean publishing industry. The no.1 book in Korea’s four major online bookstores, Dollagoot Dream Department Store 2 implies that fantasy novels are no longer a minority interest among Korean readers. The infinite love of readers can be seen in the numbers as its previous volume, Dollagoot Dream Department Store 1, made its way into the leading ranks of bestsellers. If you want to be empathetic and feel consoled by the story of Penny, the employee of the dream department store, try reading the series, volumes 1 and 2.
The integrated bestsellers list also indicates what Korean readers are wrestling with these days. While the COVID-19 pandemic has aggravated readers’ economic challenges, new economic and business books are being published in the marketplace. Among them, I Buy Dollars Instead of Stocks which pinpoints the value of dollars rather than stocks or real estate, and Future Wealth, a guideline for the flow of money in the era of the fourth industrial revolution, have joined the bestsellers’ list. In addition, as the candidates have already begun fiercely competing against each other ahead of the presidential election next year, books about politics and society such as Advanced Country in a Night: Already, But Not Yet have been popular as well.
In the nonfiction category, the 2020 Tokyo Olympic Games has been maintaining its popularity in the second week of August. Essay It’s Not Over Yet written by Kim Yeon-Koung, the empress of volleyball who showed a great performance in the Olympics, has ranked first. You will be able to see moments of “human Kim Yeon-Koung,” along with those of “volleyball player Kim Yeon-Koung.”Meanwhile, nonfiction books such as Just Let Them Be, I am a Shining Little Star, and Hello, My Dear make you feel comforted even when you read their titles. While the weather has been nice for reading books, how about picking up one of the high-ranking essays? It will be good food for you to live the second part of the year.

 

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