Dae bak! We honestly didn't think that we would come this far. Thanks to the HUGE support and encouragement you showed towards our first work, KPOP Dictionary Vol. 1, we decided to continue our endeavor and our effort has come to yet another fruition. As you might have noticed, we take pride in narrowing the gap between the Korean Pop culture and everyone around the world. As such, we believe that language shouldn't be a barrier but a means to facilitate mutual understanding. However, we understand that language does change and evolve like a living organism, and everyday new terms and phrases are born, and because traditional dictionaries just can't keep up with the trend, we have been working on a project to make a compilation of the terms and phrases that are really being used in Korea, by people like you and your favorite idol biases right at this very moment. In this version of the book, we included these to help maximize your learning. - Hottest New Words and Phrases: So You Don't Sound Outdated. - Real Life Examples: So You Can Also Understand the Context in Which They Are Used. - KPOP Conversations: So You Can Talk Like a KPOP Fan! We are certain that just by enjoying this book, you will be a step closer to the world of KPOP. Eoseo Oseyo!

MAZON BESTSELLER "It’s crazy to fall in love so fast." Vee was too sensible to believe in love at first sight. Attractive guys and great personalities were not mutually exclusive...until she met Yangbin. Maybe it was his dimples, or his broad shoulders, or maybe it was his self-confidence. Whatever it was, Yangbin stood out to Vee like no one ever had. She tried to brush him off. Forget about their one meeting and pretend she wouldn't care if she never saw him again, but when he showed up working at the hotel where Vee was spending Christmas vacation, she couldn't help but think fate had played a part. She still didn't want to believe in love, but life had other plans.

A Brief History of Humankind

ISBN: 9780771038518

View: 326

Destined to become a modern classic in the vein of Guns, Germs, and Steel, Sapiens is a lively, groundbreaking history of humankind told from a unique perspective. 100,000 years ago, at least six species of human inhabited the earth. Today there is just one. Us. Homo Sapiens. How did our species succeed in the battle for dominance? Why did our foraging ancestors come together to create cities and kingdoms? How did we come to believe in gods, nations, and human rights; to trust money, books, and laws; and to be enslaved by bureaucracy, timetables, and consumerism? And what will our world be like in the millennia to come? In Sapiens, Dr. Yuval Noah Harari spans the whole of human history, from the very first humans to walk the earth to the radical -- and sometimes devastating -- breakthroughs of the Cognitive, Agricultural, and Scientific Revolutions. Drawing on insights from biology, anthropology, palaeontology, and economics, he explores how the currents of history have shaped our human societies, the animals and plants around us, and even our personalities. Have we become happier as history has unfolded? Can we ever free our behaviour from the heritage of our ancestors? And what, if anything, can we do to influence the course of the centuries to come? Bold, wide-ranging and provocative, Sapiens challenges everything we thought we knew about being human: our thoughts, our actions, our power...and our future.
