My sister is Korean and my parents adopted her about three years before I was born and that is how I grew up.
Real philosophy is like trying to read an alarm system installation manual in Korean.
I will keep the promise I made to you to open a new era on the Korean peninsula, based on strong security and trust-based diplomacy.

I've read all of Sarah Waters's novels which have been translated into Korean.
