#ReadAroundTheWorld. #South Korea

This is a feminist retelling of the classic Korean folktale “The Tale of Shim Cheong,” by Korean American author Axie Oh.

Mina’s hometown has been buffeted by storms for years with whole villages washed away. The villagers believe the Sea God’s wrath needs to be appeased and sacrifice a beautiful maiden each year into the sea as the Sea God’s Bride. When the beautiful Shim Cheong, in love with Mina’s brother, is chosen, Mina’s life is changed and she finds herself suddenly taking Shim Cheong’s place. Mina must now find the Sea God and put things to right before her time under the sea as a mortal runs out.

She meets the harsh Shin, fun-loving Namgi and a cast of ghosts and gods. I loved the concept of this book, retelling a legend, and the cover is very attractive, but this was definitely not for me. It did not catch my attention and it felt very YA (I don’t mind reading YA but only if the story is engrossing enough to forget that it is written for teens). The romance felt undeveloped and the whole story felt flat for me. I don’t think I’ll be reading another of this author.

American-Korean girl meets cute Korean boy in LA, has loads of fun, and falls head over heels. But he goes back to Korea & doesn’t respond to her texts. When she travels to Korea with her Mom to help with her ill grandmother, she meets him again-& surprise! He’s a k-pop superstar! This is a super cute fun read, with many good food references. Highly recommended!
