Beyond Hallyu: This review of the book ‘Hello I Love You‘ about yellow fever love is absolutely hilarious.
Look at this shit:
And finally, the book is named after a song by The Doors. Grace and Jason make a solemn vow to “introduce Korea to The Doors.” Not only are Koreans aware of a band that broke up 42 years ago, but the country has its own rich history of psychedelic rock. In a move that’s appropriate for all the wrong reasons, the song “Hello, I Love You” is use as an expression of the sincere feelings between Grace and Jason. Stout believes it’s a romantic song, when it really is Jim Morrison lasciviously describing and propositioning an anonymous woman. This book also posits love where it is more like an uncomfortable, objectifying crush.
