Saying we’ve been waiting for “Frankly In Love” for our whole lives would honestly be an understatement, because it feels like we’ve been waiting for the release of the novel much longer than that (and yes, in our world it IS possible — at least when you put your mind to it).
The novel by David Yoon tells the story of a Korean-American boy named Frank Li who is caught between the traditional values of his parents and the Western culture he grew up with. And when his parents want him to date only Koreans while he’s secretly dating a white woman, Frank knows he’s in trouble. As a solution, he manages to get a Korean friend to pretend to be his girlfriend. That is, until they begin to be more than just friends.
The complexity of the novel is what seems to reel all of us in. We just can’t wait ’till we read this to get stuck in the excitement of the dilemma.
Even before reading this though, we feel like we might need a film adaptation already. With just the synopsis, the story already seems incredibly promising.
If you’re a bookworm, this is definitely a neat recommendation you seriously have to try. There’s no use dodging this masterpiece. We’re sure you’ll love it just as much as we will.
Cheers to David Yoon for such a great work!
And just to get you hyped up for the story, here’s the book trailer we all fell for.
