My mom has recently become addicted to Korean dramas, and not having much pre-existing knowledge of Korean culture, she always has a lot of questions about cultural details. Her birthday is coming up and I'd like to get her a good book about modern Korean culture.

Historical context is a plus, but she mostly likes dramas set in modern times. Overall cultural information is great, but she tends to have very specific questions about nuances of behavior, like "Why are they doing this particular action in this particular setting?" Thank you for any book recommendations that you have!
