Jessica’s Debut Novel “Shine” Makes New York Times’ Best Sellers List

Last month, Jessica published her very first novel, “Shine,” which tells the story of a Korean-American teenager trying to achieve her dream of becoming a K-pop star. Even before it hit the shelves, there were already plans for a film adaptation of the novel, and as “Shine” is part of a two-book deal, a sequel is also already in the works.

The New York Times has now published its famous Best Sellers list for the week dated October 18 (which reflects sales for the week ending on October 3), and “Shine” debuted at No. 5 on the Young Adult Hardcover list.

Congratulations to Jessica on the success of her new novel!

The power of k-pop fans!!!
I have so much to say about this shitty book

Nine (OnlyOneOf) "daisy" mixtape

Among the songs of OnlyOneOf, thereare quite a few songs related to flowers. The first album’s “blOssOm”, the song“sage” with the flower language of salvation, and the latest album’s “blOOm”.

I wanted to be a flower to all of you.My current image will be before I became a flower, but I also wantedto show you myself as well.

It was my first self-composed song, so I’m a bit shy andembarrassed, but I getup the nerve to release it.

1 in 4 office workers are YouTubers on the side: survey

Kang Tae-kwon, an office worker in his 30s, has his own YouTube channel with more than 100,000 subscribers. Its main focus is on introducing Korean culture to non-Koreans, which is unrelated to his job at a state-owned company in the agricultural sector.

"I've always wanted to make interesting content of my own and communicate with people across the world using my language skills. As I couldn't achieve my dream in my workplace, I created my own thing."

He did not expect his channel to get so big when he started it in 2018. So he was surprised when it actually led to additional income. At its peak, he was making around 2 million won ($1,726) a month.

"I seriously considered quitting my job to become a professional YouTuber, which may have led to higher income. But I decided to leave it as a hobby," he said.
