Ven. Haemin's book to be published worldwide

Ven. Haemin
By Kwon Ji-youn

Buddhist monk Ven. Haemin's bestseller "Things You Can Finally See When You Stop" will be published in English by the Penguin Group (U.S.), publisher Sam & Parkers announced Wednesday.

The book will be available to readers in China, Japan, France, the U.S., and the U.K.
All royalties, according to Ven. Haemin, will go to underprivileged children and the elderly.

The Penguin Group, owned by Pearson PLC, a global media company and owner of the Financial Times, is a trademark book publisher. Penguin Books, its British division, is headquartered in Westminster, London.

The group also published "Please Look after Mother" by Shin Kyung-sook, and "The Hen Who Dreamed She Could Fly" by Hwang Sun-mi.

Ven. Haemin's bestseller was published in Korea by Sam & Parkers. A staffer here said, "The U.S. publishing market is difficult for Korean, Japanese and European writers to enter into."
