So I bought this book, as it's a short comic book about the the past hundred years in Korea. It's also in both Korean and English. Get a quick low-down on the recent history, and get to practice Korea, right?
Showing the murder of Queen Min, the last queen of Korea. She was murdered by the Japanese. Gotta love the murderer's fangs, eh?
Everyone wants a piece of Joson.
Describing the comfort women. On this account, the Japanese cease to be humans (or even humans with fangs) and turn into full out-right wolfish monsters.
Yay! Even martians are happy Korea got its independence!
There's a saying in Korean: a shrimp gets kiled between whales" (그래 싸음에 새우등 터진다" In this case, Korea is the shrimp beween the US and USSR.
I know this is "only" a comic book...but can you imagine trying to get something like that published in the west??
I got this at Kyobo Book Store in Gangnam, and I've seen it in other book stores. It's easy to find.
