I had nothing else to do but draw cartoons. Because all he had was plenty of time, a back paper, and a Monami ballpoint pen. I never learned how to draw, but it’s a manga. However, like his best friend whom he met late, the artist was engrossed in drawing cartoons, and he began to draw cartoons about everything that happened to him. Drawing cartoons was so much fun. What’s even more interesting is that the half-baeks who used to draw cartoons as a hobby are now making a living with them.
One day, when I turned 40, I suddenly quit the company. He decided to find out what he really wanted to do rather than get a job right away because he was resting on the floor. In the meantime, I stole her mother’s money, picked up an empty bottle at a local park to sell, and drove screws in a factory, but the writer was quite happy. He became the ‘person with the weekday daytime’ he wanted so much. And he eventually found what he wanted to do.
So, , which contains the process, is the story of a man who started something completely different from what he had been doing before at the age of forty, which is never too early, and of a person who wants to live as the master of his time.

“Equality” is a book by the world-famous Marxist scholar Alex Callinicos that delves deeply into the problems of inequality and the gap between rich and poor. A veteran translator who has translated several of Callinicos’ books has done a completely new translation. It will be a meaningful book in the Korean society, where the voices of protests against fairness and reverse discrimination, the gap between the rich and the poor, inequality, and various types of discrimination continue.
In the journey of critically examining the claims of egalitarian liberals, from free market liberal advocate Robert Nozick to John Rawls, Ronald Dworkin, GA Cohen, and Amartya Sen, readers will read why society is unequal, why equality is so important, and the standard of equality. You can get a glimpse of what the masters should be, how to achieve equality, and whether capitalism and equality are compatible.

In our history, there are few monarchs whose opinions differ as much as Sejo, the 7th king of the Joseon Dynasty. The contrast between his nephew’s ascension to the throne and his ability as a king? Therefore, various studies focused on perhaps different topics, such as the accession process, the exercise of power centered on public trust and discipline, and the policy of prospering and strengthening the country and its achievements, were conducted.
Written by an author who majored in political history in the early Joseon Dynasty, this book is a little different. Based on

It deals with three modernist writers who diagnosed the situation of colonial Joseon in the 1930s as a crisis of reproduction. Park Tae-won, Kim Yoo-jung, and Lee Tae-joon, as members of the Gu In-hoe, worked to shake up the linguistic arrangement that allowed them to speak only the imperialist reality. For a while, an important issue in the study of Korean modern literature was how the work portrayed the oppressed colonial reality. However, no matter how accurately they are reproduced, the reality to be reproduced is first given as a negative of imperialism.

This is an author’s dictionary containing the literary activities of writers during the colonial period in East Asia, such as Taiwan, Joseon, and Manchukuo. The criterion for selecting the writers included in this dictionary was the relationship with other regions rather than their literary historical status in the literary field of each region. Even if it did not have a significant literary history in the country, it was included when it had a lot of relevance to other parts of East Asia.

This book is like a map of thought that contains the discussions of philosophers around the five hottest themes in the philosophy of our time. How to establish the basis of a fair society (the theory of justice), how to recognize and approve others and each other (approval theory), whether there are human laws that are irreducible in the language of science (naturalism), and whether artificial intelligence can be conscious ( Philosophy of mind), and now, toward the end of anthropocentrism, is philosophical thinking beyond relativistic worldviews and values possible (new realism). By connecting and intersecting the thoughts of philosophers with different backgrounds and positions in the five domains, what kind of questions are being asked in each domain, how they are being discussed, and what kind of practice philosophy is.

– Anna Gabalda (French national author, author of I Loved Her) –
An adventure full of humor and thrills of the lost ballad goat singer Horbik
Hornvik, who had touched the hearts of the goats who came to the ballad of love, could not bear the wounds of a broken heart and left the village as if running away with a banjo. A stork drops a package at him. Inside the package was a letter of earnest request from a field mouse, Pia, who seemed to have not yet weaned. Fiae is a cruel marten, the only wild mouse that survived the ruthless slaughter of Griffith. Horbik suddenly becomes Piae’s guardian, nurturer, and companion. Can Horvik do well in this fateful role? Can you save Piae, the only endangered field mouse in the world, from the marten? Join Horvik and Piae on their breathtaking escape journey. A tense yet laughter-filled adventure story that takes place when the desperate situation the two face and a soul like Don Quixote from Horvik meet! As we follow a journey that is completely unpredictable even on the back page, we too become wonderful ballad singers singing love.
A fable full of laughter, adventure and action by Jean-Claude Murrva!
Ballad Goat Singer Horbik’s Wandering Road is a series of unexpected events. Like fate, he becomes the father of Pi-ae, the only remaining hibernating wild mouse in the world, and he has a suffocating chase with the cruel and persistent marten, Griffith. The unusual contest in which Horbik participates is also a highlight of this book. It’s a chaotic running competition with no rules, and even a swearing contest where you have to swear the most creatively to win. What about Dr. Lam, the panacea who suffers from severe forgetfulness? A story that cannot be predicted at all until the very end. 『Holbik’s Love Song』 is the story of a reckless and bizarre, but full of laughter and moving adventures unfolded by Horbik, Fiae, and Dr. Lam.
What if one day you suddenly become the guardian of the only animal left in this world?
What would you do? Are you willing to take on that heavy responsibility and duty?
Our main character, Horvik, does so unexpectedly. He was a singer who only sang love songs since he was born, but he was mercilessly rejected by love. For Horvik, who only thought of love between lovers, Fiae was not the object of love. But, it was an opportunity for love in a different form. Love in the form of nurture that requires care, responsibility, and patience. If the cowardly and timid horned Vik had thought of it as ‘love’ from the beginning, he wouldn’t have done anything. However, our hornbeak simply and lightly decides to take charge of Piae as he pleases. That’s how the fugitive situation started. However, through that long journey, he is reborn as a true lover who has experienced the whole process of love without realizing it.
An explosive emotion when a serious and heavy subject meets humor and music!
Dr. Lam, who goes to sleep with severe forgetfulness, is the king of ideas, the singer who only sings love turns out to be a natural scoundrel, the acclaimed running races are real chaos, and some breed others just for taste. It leads to extinction, breeds it, and chases it to the end to eat it again. 『Holbik’s Love Song』 is a work that makes you think about something while laughing and enjoying the extraordinary contests and situations. Because you can feel the poignant satire and message hidden beneath the humor and thrilling story by the author.
All songs sung by Horbick are hits by legendary American folk singer Woody Guthrie. Woody Guthrie is famous for many hits that soothed and touched hearts during the Great Depression in the United States. He was also a singer who had a major influence on Nobel Prize winner Bob Dylan.
Woody Guthrie’s songs that Hurvik sings in every situation are too meaningful to ignore. 『Holvik’s Love Song』 is a work that gives you greater charm and emotion the more you ponder, search, and think deeply.
