Format: Hardcover
Beautiful book-perhaps a bit heavy on "people" and less on the physical beauty of the country.

My fiancee is half Korean but he hasn't been there since he was very young, so I got him this for Christmas and we've both enjoyed looking at the beautiful pictures. We recently moved in together and use it as a coffee table book now.
