Korea specifically South Korea has become cool in the last decade or so. The emergence of K-Pop and the popularity of Korean idols think Bae Yong-poon contribute partially to this cool Korea but beyond these, there is the Samsung smartphone and electronics. The transition from a poor agricultural country without any natural resources to a successful developed country in a matter of decades has made everyone sit up and watch South Korea. Why is South Korea able to transform itself from a war-ravaged and highly authoritarian country to the current impressive and successful democratic nation? The author first stepped on Korean grounds (Ulsan) on the eve of the 2002 World Cup the night South Korea played against Italy for the finals and what he saw, inspired him to return and work in Korea in the course of which he develops a love and admiration for this nation. In A Geek in Korea the author is able to show the real Korea through a wide array of topics in short, compelling articles accompanied by numerous sidebars and photographs, thus providing a lively digest of the Korean society and culture. Designed to appeal to the generations of Westerners who grew up on Korean idols and K-Pop, Samsung smartphones and electronics, A Geek in Korea reinvents the culture guide for readers in the Internet age.
