A Letter from the CEO

Dear readers, authors, illustrators and agents!

For the past 20 years, there is one philosophy I kept close to my heart was to publish a book that readers will trust. To take each step with care and publishs with sincerity. It may not always have been enough, but I believe we have made it this far because the integrity of our philosophy has been recognized by our readers.

I would like to take this opportunity to convey my deep-rooted gratitude for our readers. I would also like to thank all the authors and translators for sharing their extensive knowledge through our books. To answer to your love and support, Hanbit will strive to develop as a better publication than we have been in the last decades.
