IN THIS SUMMARY

In Seoul Man, Frank Ahrens shares his experience of leaving his job as a journalist for the Washington Post for a new, exciting career in South Korea. The Foreign Service assigned his wife, Rebekah, to a two-year post in Seoul, while the Hyundai Motor Company hired Frank as its director of global public relations. While Rebekah was experienced in living abroad among different cultures, Frank, the lone American in his workplace, faced a number of unexpected cultural challenges both at home and at work. Seoul Man documents Frank’s journey, complete with successes and missteps, as he sought to attain corporate success abroad.
