Honjok

Or 6 payments from $6.15 Laybuy What's this?

Up until a few years ago, the word honjok didn't exist. The neologism, coined in South Korea as a combination of hon (alone) and jok (tribe), has become a symbol of a South Korean movement that challenges traditional notions of family and social roles. Choosing to live and spend time alone, young South Koreans have found a way to free themselves from social pressures and give new meaning to the concept of happiness.

In writing this book, the authors interviewed sociologists, journalists, photographers, and young Koreans. They visited blogs and forums on which honjoks share their thoughts, joys, and anxieties.
