Dae bak! We honestly didn't think that we would come this far. Thanks to the HUGE support and encouragement you showed towards our first work, KPOP Dictionary Vol. 1, we decided to continue our endeavor and our effort has come to yet another fruition. As you might have noticed, we take pride in narrowing the gap between the Korean Pop culture and everyone around the world. As such, we believe that language shouldn't be a barrier but a means to facilitate mutual understanding. However, we understand that language does change and evolve like a living organism, and everyday new terms and phrases are born, and because traditional dictionaries just can't keep up with the trend, we have been working on a project to make a compilation of the terms and phrases that are really being used in Korea, by people like you and your favorite idol biases right at this very moment. In this version of the book, we included these to help maximize your learning. - Hottest New Words and Phrases: So You Don't Sound Outdated. - Real Life Examples: So You Can Also Understand the Context in Which They Are Used. - KPOP Conversations: So You Can Talk Like a KPOP Fan! We are certain that just by enjoying this book, you will be a step closer to the world of KPOP. Eoseo Oseyo!

A unique perspective on the director of such film classics as Dr. Strangelove, 2001, and Full Metal Jacket, from his personal assistant and confidante. “As good an insider's view of middle- to late-period Kubrick as there is…funny and casual throughout.”—Kirkus Reviews Stanley Kubrick has been seen mostly as an enigma—the neurotic Howard Hughes of filmmakers, a bizarre hermit and unknowable genius consumed by his work and obsessed with privacy to the point of madness. In this “weird, revealing delight” (The New York Times Book Review), Emilio D'Alessandro gives readers a never-before-seen perspective of the real man behind some of the most iconic works of art in the history of cinema. Emilio was a minicab driver in London who had no idea who Kubrick was when he took a job as the director’s chauffeur during the filming of A Clockwork Orange. Honest, reliable, and ready to take on any task, Emilio found his way into Kubrick's oddball heart and confidence. For the next thirty years he became Kubrick’s trusted personal assistant, handyman, cook, sounding board, housekeeper, and pet-sitter—all the while observing firsthand Kubrick’s meticulous working methods. He was even solicited by Kubrick to offer casting suggestions. (Emilio urged his consideration of Charles Bronson for The Shining). In the collective imagination, Kubrick was an isolated misanthrope. In this fresh and affecting portrait, Emilio reveals an altruistic, effusive, generous, and loyal friend—and an artist devoted to the three things in life that mattered to him most: his family, his animals, and his movies. "Through detailed anecdotes and tender accounts of life both on location and off, D'Alessandro sheds light behind the scenes…and offers a unique portrait of the man himself."—Vice
