"Making Out in Korean is a helpful phrasebook, and it might save you from embarrassing yourself one day by not understanding something important." --The Waegukin blog
"A funny phrase book. The difference of this one from the other phrase books out there is that it focuses on slangs - specifically relationships/romance slangs." blog
"One of the things that I most like about the books is that they include the English translations of the phrases as well as the sentences and words in the writing system of the language alongside the transliteration. This is great both for those who are interested in a more conversational approach and for those interested in more in-depth learning." --Eurolinguiste
"Making Out in Korean is a fun, easy-to-use and comprehensive Korean phrasebook, covering catchy Korean expressions commonly used among native Koreans. With this book, speaking Korean in Korea is no longer a daunting task!" --POP CLUB blog
"This book is to the point and does not sugar coat phrases during translations. It is -- the resource -- for learning the Korean slang language and to understand how the locals speak the language. This isn't a phrasebook for board meetings: it's a phrasebook for making new friends in Korean bars. If you want to learn some great insults, cuss words, and the worst ways to compliment a woman, read this book." --Korea Guide blog
"I find language books really boring sometimes, with chunks of words and more vocab words, I could never get a proper explanation when I flip through those books myself. Thankfully, Making Out in Korean has something different that I was looking out for. With romanized picture illustrations in each topic, it becomes more engaging and fun to learn and explore the new language." --Hallyu SG blog
"Making Out in Korean -- Funny book title there huh? What can you learn from here? A bunch of funny phrases, curses and umm yeah." blog
"Although the title Making Out in Korean may sound racy, that is definitely not the case with the content of this book (keke). If you're planning to visit Korea to enjoy the Hallyu wave and K-pop music, this is the phrase book that you really need." --K-Popped blog
