Product Description

Up until a few years ago, the word Honjok did not 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. A silent revolution and an invitation to use the time we spend alone as a powerful antidote against norms and habits with which we don’t identify.
