Learn Korean Through K-Drama, Book 1 and 2

Want to learn Korean the fun way? Learn it by watching K-drama on YouTube and Netflix!
The books, Learn Korean Through K-Drama, vol. 1 and 2, provide at the beginning of each chapter a direct link to scenes of the most-watched, top-ranked K-dramas on YouTube and Netflix, like “Crash Landing On You,” “Itaewon Class,” and “My Mister.” The books also provide ample language exercises and discussions of Korean life, society, and issues that are directly related to the dialogues (in English and Korean) from the drama scenes. Hot social issues are the themes of the Learn Korean Through K-Drama, Book 2.
Seoul Selection, the publisher of my autobiographical book about Korea, The Voices of Heaven (my TEDx Talk about it:, plans to publish Book 3 of the Learn Korean Though K-Drama by early next year.
More from Seoul Selection:
Subtitled “A Glance at Issues in Korean Society,” this second book features K-drama shows that offer an in-depth view of the various issues in Korean society. Included dramas in this book (series 2) are It’s Okay Not to Be Okay (싸이코지만 괜찮아), Itaewon Class (이태원 클라쓰), My Mister (나의 아저씨) , SKY Castle (SKY캐슬), and Misaeng: Incomplete Life (미생). We hope that they provide curious readers a deeper understanding of life in Korea.
Through the scenes, readers will be able to ruminate on topics relevant not only to Koreans but to everyone living in contemporary society. Among the issues are mental health, social exclusion, non-regular employment, education, and ethics.
This book is unique in that each script comes with QR codes and Netflix timestamps that provide direct links to corresponding YouTube videos and Netflix scenes, allowing readers to access the clips at any time and understand the language content while watching and listening to it on screen.
