『Realities of Young People in Northeast Asia』 illustrates various realities facing young people—those in their 20s and 30s—in South Korea, China and Japan. Going beyond the existing framework focused on the nature of the generation, authors put into consideration concrete contexts and differences young people live through in respective countries, thereby discerning shared and differing characters. They also shed light on how cultural differences of the three countries are reflected in the lived realities of young people in each country. By enhancing understanding of the youth, authors of the book help readers to better understand social issues of South Korea, China and Japan.
