Moksu Books

Shopping Jongno-gu

Disguised as a bookstore, this sweetshop of words is actually home to a small publishing company called Moksu Books. As indicated by the pressed leaves and wooden sticks detailing the space, the publishers focus on books themed around the environment, plants and organics. While it’s neither a library nor a bookstore, nearby office workers taking a stroll during their lunch break come in for quick reads and there are books available for purchase. While most everything’s in Korean, we did discover an English copy of Trina Paulus’ Hope for the Flowers for an afternoon picker-upper.
