Farewell to faux pas! South Korea is one of the greatest economic success stories of the past 60 years, and more and more Westerners are traveling to this bustling, modern country for business and pleasure. But no matter why you visit, an understanding of Korea's etiquette and culture is essential to an enjoyable and successful trip. With Etiquette Guide to Korea, you'll never need to worry about making an embarrassing mistake-this authoritative guide covers everything the courteous traveler needs to know, including the importance of names and how to use them, shaking hands versus bowing, table manners for celebrations and everyday meals, and how to negotiate in Korea. Known as "the Hermit Kingdom" until the final decades of the nineteenth century because it kept its doors closed to the outside world, Korea wasn't exposed to international influences until the mid-twentieth century. Perhaps this is why many of the traditional aspects of Korea's culture have been preserved in spite of the explosion of modernity in recent times. Today Korea's age-old culture has combined with the ultramodern Western ways and conveniences to transform the country into one of the world's most popular destinations. Also included are invaluable lists of Korean vocabulary and phrases.
