[Book] Blonote by Tablo from Epik High (Korean & English Version)

by - Friday, July 05, 2019

This is the second books of Tablo from Epik High after the first book, Pieces of You I was bought on last 2 years ago. This year, I just got time to write a review of these books. While hosting the radio show Tablo's Dreaming Radio, Epik High's Tablo often jotted down and shared "Blonotes" of his thoughts, and these pithy stories, quotes, and expressions become a fan-favorite part of the program. 

The topics of the messages covered everything from family, friends, hectic daily routines, relationships, and much more. The book is filled with personal messages handwritten by famous musicians, movie directors, comedians, models, designers, and DJs among many others. Tablo, who previously published an English short story collection, has compiled selected original Blonotes into his second book. The English Edition of Blonotes is written and translated by Tablo himself. 

Tablo's Blonote is a collection of bittersweet one-or-two-liners. It is depending on where you are in your life and what you are dealing with; some will speak to you very much while others won't. I enjoyed reading this little gem parallel in English and Korean. I'm still a beginner when it comes to Korean, but it was a lot of fun to see how many words I already recognized. It also helped me to read Korean more fluently. It's well worth a read and a great tool to improve one's Korean reading. I would like to give 4.8 stars out of 5 stars to these books.
