A publishing hub of Asia that delivers a better tomorrow and a better world

For the past 27 years, there is one philosophy
I kept close to 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.

We strive to be

  • A publication that readers can trust regardless timeless time
  • A publication that we ourselves love and value; a company with dignity and a healthy publication culture
  • A publication that reaches beyond Korea, Asia, out to the world
We always publish each and every book with our vision and the belief that we can keep our promises with our readers. Thank you for your interest in our Company, our brands and our books.
