Seeking novels set in or about Korea

koreafiction1

I’m seeking  book recommendations for a summer event I’m hosting this summer.

These need to be English language books; from children’s picture books to novels that are set in Korea.

Know any? Please drop a comment to let me know.

Thank you!

  1. Here are a few you might want to check out:
    The Story of Hong Gildong Translated by Minsoo Kang (Korean Fairy Tale)
    A Single Shard by Linda Sue Park (set in 12th-century Korea)
    When My Name Was Keoko by Linda Sue Park (set in Korea during WWII)
    The Kite Fighters by Linda Sue Park (set in Korea during the 15th century)

  2. Thank you for the recommendations. I have a different story book for Hong Gildong, so I am interested in finding the one you mentioned. I saw A Single Shard and When my Name was Keoko when I did a search on Amazon before I posted for help, so I’ve grabbed those to check out. I was surprised with how few came up in my search though.
