Dae bak! We honestly didn't think that we would come this far. Thanks to the HUGE support and encouragement you showed towards our first work, KPOP Dictionary Vol. 1, we decided to continue our endeavor and our effort has come to yet another fruition. As you might have noticed, we take pride in narrowing the gap between the Korean Pop culture and everyone around the world. As such, we believe that language shouldn't be a barrier but a means to facilitate mutual understanding. However, we understand that language does change and evolve like a living organism, and everyday new terms and phrases are born, and because traditional dictionaries just can't keep up with the trend, we have been working on a project to make a compilation of the terms and phrases that are really being used in Korea, by people like you and your favorite idol biases right at this very moment. In this version of the book, we included these to help maximize your learning. - Hottest New Words and Phrases: So You Don't Sound Outdated. - Real Life Examples: So You Can Also Understand the Context in Which They Are Used. - KPOP Conversations: So You Can Talk Like a KPOP Fan! We are certain that just by enjoying this book, you will be a step closer to the world of KPOP. Eoseo Oseyo!

Shall we meet again?) Answer this correctly in Korean and you may be going on a hot date. Incorrectly, and you could be hurting someone's feelings or getting a slap!

In addition, easy-to-use phonetic spellings of all Korean words and phrases are given. For example "How are you?"—annyeonghaseyo? is also written as anh-nyawng-hah-seyo?

This book provides a fresh and contemporary take on the study of men and masculinity. It highlights new and exciting approaches to sexuality, desire, men and masculinity in East Asian contexts, focusing on the interconnections between them. In doing so, it re-examines the key concepts that underpin studies of masculinity, such as homophobia, homosociality and heteronormativity. Developing new ways of thinking about masculinity in local contexts, it fills a significant lacuna in contemporary scholarship. This thought-provoking work will appeal to students and scholars of gender studies, cultural studies and the wider social sciences.
