Top Hallyu star Bae Yong-joon's photo essay "Discovering the Beauty of Korea," which has been sold in both Korea and Japan, will also go on the shelves of Taiwan.
Bae's agency KEYEAST announced through a press release on Tuesday that the Taiwanese version, completed after a year-long period of translation, will go on sale in the country starting today.
"We had constantly received requests and inquiries regarding the book's publication not only from fans but also regular readers. We're hoping it will be received well by people of all ages since it serves as a guidebook to Korea's culture instead of being the typical star-related book," the book's Taiwanese publisher SBOOKER explained.
KEYEAST added that a Chinese and English version of Bae's photo essay are also set to be published.
"Discovering" had entered into its 13th print a month after going on sale in Korea in late September last year and a re-print in three days of its release in Japan.
The book contains photographs of various cultural artisans that the actor met during his travels, as well as introductions to Korean culture and travel locations which Bae compiled over a one-year period.
