One of Hollym’s best-selling books, The beauty of Korea captures so much of what makes Korea unique and visually spectacular. Within images that will leave an indelible mark in your mind’s eye, photographer Suh Jae-sik takes you on a tour of his native country, from Seoul, the capital of Korea to the semi-tropical island of Jejudo, mountains, beaches, gardens, temples, and urban centers of South Korea. After the first edition in 1997 and second in 2010, the third revised edition is published in 2021, adding to the changed appearance of Korea.
Inside the Book
Korea is a beautiful country. Not only the natural environment, but also the Korean people who live hard in the land are beautiful. Korea has a long history of 5,000 years and retains numerous cultural heritages left by their ancestors. Many of the heritages were burned or lost due to foreign invasion, but nevertheless, Kore란ans have lived steadfastly in keeping the culture and spirit.
Korea, a small peninsula in Northeast Asia, did not succumb to numerous foreign invasions and rose again. With the persistence, sincerity, and sacrifice of the people, Korea now proudly rises to the ranks of advanced countries.
This photo book contains beautiful landscapes, traditions, and people all over the land to properly convey the beauty of Korea. Although it does not cover all aspects of Korea, it would be satisfactory if this photo book could give readers a deeper understanding of Korea and Koreans.
