I am frequently asked to recommend books on Korea and its culture. Understanding Korea's past is an important step in comprehending its business culture, norms, and common practices.
A great place to begin is several books I've authored. The books will give you and your team some background on Korea's recent past. In fact, my focus is early Western influence in Korea, although I write on contemporary Korean culture, too.
