Books
"It is 1959 and Seoul, the capital of the newly-founded state of South Korea is overrun with spies and communists from the hostile North; American soldiers; and corrupt Generals vying for power. Against this backdrop of betrayal and uncertainty, Yunho - a young man who lost his family in the civil war - stumbles across his oldest friend, Johnny in the bar where Johnny's girlfriend Eve dances for the American troops. Reunited with Johnny, dangerously smitten with Eve, Yunho is drawn into a world of deception and violence. When a crime is committed, the three friends are forced to flee South Korea; a perilous journey that will see them compelled to choose between the devil they know, and the nascent state in the North which promises to welcome them with open arms..."--Provided by publisher.
