Recentrly I’ve picked up a
Chinese translation book by the Korean author Jin Wen Xue. The title of the book is “Chinese . Japanese . Korea” (the Japanese
edition of the book is titled “Japanese . Chinese . Korean”, and I am sure
the original Korean edition is “Korean . Chinese . Japanese”)
Anyhow, the book is not one of those stuffy cultural antrphology stuff, instead,
it’s a full color color boook and rather humorisly talk about the similar things
and the differences of the 3 cultures. i.e. Chinese is culture of “saulty”,
Japanese is the cultere of “sour” and the Korean is the culture of “bitter”.
I wish there will be an English translation of this book out soon in the US.
