Korean Bestsellers Trend in June

Result of First Week in June 2017

 

2017.6.30

 

Political books “rising” and novel “neck and neck game”

 

On May 10th, as the new government was formed in Korea, Jae-in Moon's Destiny reached the number one spot for three consecutive weeks until June. The parliamentary hearing continued after the presidential election, so the readers' interest in politics remained steady. Especially, competition in the fiction section was fierce in this week. Bernard Werner’s new book, Slumber 1, ranked third on the list with the release of Homo Deus of Yuval Noah HararI, and Nam-joo Jo's Ji-young Kim Born in 1982 rose 11.8% from the previous week, breaking the record of weekly sales units.

 

 

“Writers’ TV appearance” on the topic

 

It appears that when writers appear on TV that their books become popular. After Young-Ha Kim appeared on a TV entertainment program, his novel Only Two was ranked seventh, after rising two ranks in the bestseller rankings in one week. Moreover, the other writers of humanities (Si-min Rhyu) and sciences (Jae-seung Jung) who participated in the same program are expected to receive more awareness in the near future.
