Korean Book Recommendation: 완득이 (Punch) / Young-Adult Book

Looking for a good novel to read in Korean? Kyung-hwa recommends the book 완득이 and explains why.

We have received a lot of requests for Korean book recommendations. Here is Kyung-hwa’s first book recommendation: 완득이 [wan-deu-gi] (or Punch). It has also been made into a movie featuring 유아인. It’s a young-adult coming-of-age novel that is relatively easy to read, and since the story in the movie is not that different from the original novel, watching the movie first can be a good way to make sure you understand the story in the book more effectively.

This video has been subtitled both in Korean and in English for your learning convenience.
