Meet Sarah Suk!

   

Sarah Suk (pronounced like soup with a K) lives in Vancouver, Canada, where she writes stories and admires mountains.

Meet Made in Korea!

 

Frankly in Love meets Shark Tank in this feel-good romantic comedy about two entrepreneurial Korean American teens who butt heads—and maybe fall in love—while running competing Korean beauty businesses at their high school.

There’s nothing Valerie Kwon loves more than making a good sale. Together with her cousin Charlie, they run V&C K-BEAUTY, their school’s most successful student-run enterprise. With each sale, Valerie gets closer to taking her beloved and adventurous halmeoni to her dream city, Paris.

Enter the new kid in class, Wes Jung, who is determined to pursue music after graduation despite his parents’ major disapproval. When his classmates clamor to buy the K-pop branded beauty products his mom gave him to “make new friends,” he sees an opportunity—one that may be the key to help him pay for the music school tuition he knows his parents won’t cover…

What he doesn’t realize, though, is that he is now V&C K-BEAUTY’s biggest competitor.

Stakes are high as Valerie and Wes try to outsell each other, make the most money, and take the throne for the best business in school—all while trying to resist the undeniable spark that’s crackling between them. From hiring spies to all-or-nothing bets, the competition is much more than either of them bargained for.

But one thing is clear: only one Korean business can come out on top.

Top 5 Korean Snacks by Sarah Suk

 

While writing Made in Korea, I wanted to be sure to include some of my favourite Korean foods throughout the story. Alas, I have far too many and wasn’t able to feature them all, but lucky for me, there exist spaces outside my novel for me to make my passions known. Today we’re talking snacks — Korean snacks.

  • PEPERO

 

Pepero is a box of biscuit sticks dipped in chocolate, available in many flavours such as strawberry, matcha, almond, and so on. This is such a popular snack that South Korea even has an official Pepero Day. Pepero Day is observed on November 11th which I’ve heard is due to the fact that the number 1 looks like a Pepero stick. So 11/11 — that’s a box of Pepero right there.

  • TURTLE CHIPS

 

This bag of four-layer corn chips in the shape of turtle shells is my personal go to at the moment. The crunch! The flavour! Be warned: they’re highly addictive and, to borrow the famous Lay’s catchphrase, it really is impossible to eat just one.

  • JOLLY PONG

 

Oh, Jolly Pong. A true staple in Korean snack land. These are essentially wheat puffs with a light, sugary glaze that’s best eaten by the handful. I’ve also seen people eat it as a cereal, sprinkle it on top of milkshakes, and turn it into an ice cream flavour. The versatility of Jolly Pong is truly unparalleled.

  • CHOCO PIE

 

A classic! This round chocolate cake with marshmallow filling never fails to make me think of childhood. Pair it with a carton of strawberry milk or banana milk and you’ve got yourself a winning combo.

  • CUTTLEFISH SNACK

 

Finally, the Cuttlefish Snack. This is literally exactly what it sounds like — chips in the shape of cuttlefish that taste like grilled cuttlefish. There are many seafood flavoured Korean snacks that I enjoy, including the popular shrimp crackers and squid peanut balls, but the Cuttlefish Snack is my favourite of them all. If you ever find yourself at an H-Mart with a craving for some savoury chips, go on and try this one. And maybe pick up all of the above while you’re at it. Just to balance it all out.
