Last week, I got a message from a Korean web store I had never heard about, asking me would I be interested in reviewing a Korean book of my choice, any book they had at the store, and they would give me that book for free. I was hesitant to accept the offer. I thought, it sounded too good to be true. Now, what did your mother say about receiving stuff from strangers? A big no-no, right?
I refused right away. But they insisted. So I checked their website, and I really like the Korean book selection on the site. If it were a scam scheme, the website wouldn’t be so tidy and pretty, right? I actually want to shop there!
I e-mailed them a couple of times, and they always replied promptly, which is great for an online store. So I gave them my mailing address and I received the package yesterday. Wow, I can’t believe they really sent me stuff for free, and it’s from Korea!
Let’s open the box!
A beautiful postcard with a message on it. Hand-written. Wow. How thoughtful.
What’s this? A magazine? “10TEN Story” magazine? Wow! Kyaa…! I just ordered just the same one from another store! Ran to my laptop, canceled it. Done. Crisis averted. Phew.
B1A4 on the cover… (^^)
And a beautiful 18 K gold-plated bookmark. I love it!
There’s a hangul poetry written on it:
The sound of a wind-bell from afar.
It seems the wind has blown.
It’s just… too much. I’m so happy and grateful for their kindness. I’m sorry I had some doubt about the site.Thank you so much, twoChois. 대단히 감사합니다.
