A Korean lawyer acquaintance mentioned he was reading this book. It prompted me to investigate. Seems like a book worth reading if you are involved in Korea business and legal issues.

Korean Business Law: The Legal Landscape and Beyond
Jasper Kim; Carolina Academic Press; 358 pp., $40
This book written by Jasper Kim, a professor of Ewha Graduate School of International Studies is the first of its kind in English that explains Korean business laws for business leaders, bankers, students and academics as well as lawyers.
The book consists of 18 chapters, each written by experts in their fields ― law firm partners, scholars and members of the judiciary ― to essentially help globalize Korea’s legal commercial infrastructure. Each chapter is based on the relevant experts’ empirical background that provide essential information on business law through the author’s thoughtful insights.
Targeting a diverse global audience both inside and outside Korea, the book presents clear and concise explanations of what the law means relating to South Korea’s often complex and changing business environment.
Major issues include corporations, mergers and acquisitions, securities offerings, the Korean judicial system, intellectual property rights, project financing, private equity funds, competition law, broadcasting/telecommunications, renewable energy law, corporate governance, legal risk management, labor law, real estate, trade law and torts.
