I went to Kinokuniya in Plaza Senayan today thinking maybe I could find a new Korean textbook from their Japanese book section. I was disappointed to find that they didn’t renew their Korean textbook collection. Only 2 books left: one was about writing diary in Korean, and one was about memorable lines from Korean movies. Both I was not interested in buying. All other and newer books that were there the last time I went were gone so I must be not the only one who has been buying Korean textbooks there…
But the English book section was filled with new and popular titles so I spent a few hours just looking at those beautiful book covers and reading description on the back covers.
I bought 3 books:
-“Far from the Tree” by Andrew Solomon for myself
-Barbie activity book for my 4-year-old daughter, and
-“The Fault in Our Stars” by John Green as a gift for my little sister.
Before we went home, I bought 2 Japanese drama DVD at a CD store because they were on sale. フリーター、家を買う。(Furiitaa, Ie O Kau / 프리터, 집을 산다) and 薔薇のない花屋 (Bara No Nai Hanaya / 장미가 없는 꽃집). I heard that the dramas were very popular but I have never watched them. Fifty thousand rupiah each (about US$ 4) which is crazy cheap if you compare to the original version sold in Japan.
They’re original, not pirated version. >< But judging from the Chinese letters written on the cover, they might be copy version of the ones sold in China.
Oh, and I studied -ㄹ망정 for my one-grammar-a-day challenge today.
It’s 2 o’clock already. 잘 자요. 좋은 꿈 꿔요. Zzzz… ###
