    1. He’s the hottest Korean I’ve ever seen.Not that I have much experience with Koreans, but all the ones I’ve encountered couldn’t even be considered in the same realm as Sophie’s brother.This is not a book for k-pop lovers. It is a book about a superior, condescending American and how she spreads her knowledge to the poor ignorant K-pop star.“She doesn’t play any instrument,” Yoon Jae provides. “She just knows everything about music.”“That’s not true,” I say. But I can’ [...]

    2. Initial reaction:I'll say this though, in some meditation: I understand that Grace is a young woman who's pretty much a fish out of water in the country of Korea, escaping a really heavy burden that she carries with her from the States, but I do not, I seriously DO NOT, understand her cultural intolerance and put downs of Korean culture and people in this book. It's inexcusable. There's a part of me that wants to think the author intended this to be a flaw of the character, but there are other r [...]

    3. 3 1/2 stars.Hello, I Love You is probably the most improbable young adult contemporary romance novel that I have read this year. YET, it is also lovely and the type of book that will make you dream of a one-in-a-million relationship with someone.It’s funny how rich people can get whatever they want, whenever they want. Wealthy producer daughter Grace Wilde impulsively and unexpectedly decides to transfer to a Korean high school to get away… to escape from an overwhelming life at being known [...]

    4. Fair warning: The word "fuck" and other variations will be used constantly in this review. It's necessary, thank you.I have never, in my entire reading career (humor me, okay?), wanted to reach into a book to strangle a main character as much as I wanted to with this one. Considering my angry girl personality, that's really saying something.Grace stood out. In the worst fucking way possible. So for example, you want to leave your country to attend school elsewhere. Obviously, if you're a normal [...]

    5. See more reviews at YA Midnight ReadsHello, I hate you. Goodbye. *slams door in book's face*If you want a novel with (a proper representation of) Korean culture mixed with ultimate cuteness and likeable characters, I suggest you turn around and leave right now. Why? Because this has none of that. Sure, there are a few cute moments but then the book takes it a step too far which results it coming off as cheesy and cliche. However, the main reason of this was because of how unlikeable the main [...]

    6. DNF @ 20% + some skimming. The main character is an embarrassment. I was cringing all over the place.She travels to South Korea of her own volition (because she wants to run away, and it was the first country that popped up on a Google search for international schooling), yet is ill-equipped for even the slightest cultural differences. She didn't bother to learn anything about her new home. What else? Let me count the ways.She is judgmental.She is ungracious.She is a music snob.She is hypocritic [...]

    7. I did see ’ average rating for the book but that did not stop me from reading it because the cover is just too cute and considering that I already have the book on hand, I thought why not just read it? Whilst I wasn’t completing regretting that decision, the book didn’t really do anything much for me. At best, it was a cute, but generally just okay read.I recognize that this is Ms. Katie Stout’s debut novel and for that, I do think she deserves a certain amount of acknowledgement especia [...]

    8. Brace yourselves because this is going to be a long review.I read this book for one reason and one reason alone: The controversy it's causing. Not because at the beginning (a couple of months ago, before the reviews started to appear) it seemed like a diverse book, or because the synopsis intrigued me (please, you know I hate to read romance). So now I'm going to review it in two parts: One is the “actual” review, and the other is a list of quotes and what I have to say about them.Part 1: Re [...]

    9. A white American girl goes to Korea because it popped first in her Google search for international boarding school and disses every aspect of its culture?Not only is this book inconsistent with its facts, it is apparently offensive as well.It even got a negative Kirkus review. Faaaail. FAAAAAAAIL.I may not have loved Ink by Amanda Sun (American girl arriving in Japan), but read that instead. At least that one respects the host country's culture.

    10. Gurl. This sounds to me like it's specifically made to fulfill the fantasies of certain hormonal young K-POP fans. But, I suppose I could give it the benefit of the doubt. Ish.

    11. I can already imagine a scenario in this book.JASON: "I I can't let it be known that we're dating. The sasaeng fans. The sasaeng fans."*cue high speed sasaeng taxi chase scene later in the book when it's revealed that our heroine is dating their precious Jason-oppa*

    12. This book sounded so promising! It has been compared to Anna and the French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins except set in Korea and features a hot KPOP star! UMM SIGN ME UP! But unfortunately, I was really disappointed with this book. The idea was so great and had just enough originality to separate itself from Anna and the French Kiss, but essentially, a quite few things let it down for me.Firstly, I found the main character to be EXTREMELY unlikeable. She was rude, really nosey, judgmental, a little [...]

    13. A sweet, feel-good kind of read, Hello, I Love You transported me to Korea with its highly descriptive and atmospheric writing. I had a good time reading this novel, the romance is cute and full of chemistry, buuuut (you knew it was coming) the hot and cold nature of their relationship for a good 90% of the book does get frustrating. Even though Grace ends up having a reason behind her inability to trust and open up her heart, I couldn't help but find myself annoyed at her sudden bursts of coldn [...]

    14. This better be as legendary as the K-Pop adventures of the one and only Park Sakura Lopez or I ain't even gonna bother!The fan culture in Korea is crazy, so how would they even manage to date and all those jazz with Dispatch paps and sasaeng fans (possibly)around? The dude's said to be extremely famous, so stalker fans are bound to exist. And most important of all: Is Jason supposed to be the guy's idol name as well? It's so basic like T.O.P's supposed stage name, Mark. lol

    15. ARC received in exchange for an honest review via NetGalley.If you know me, you know I love KPop. And I was so flipping pumped when I got approved for this book. But then the negative reviews started and I got a little bit apprehensive about it. But I charged ahead and I read this book anyways. Let's just say that the negative reviews are well deserved.I'm just going to come out and say it: Grace is a ridiculous spoiled brat of a bitch. She's blonde, skinny, pretty, and is a princess in the musi [...]

    16. Things I Find While ShelvingI received a free ARC via NetGalleyDNF at 68%I know. I made it pretty far. Don't ask me how because I spent most of what I read of this book just wishing it would end already because I really didn't care.Our intrepid main character, Grace, wanted to get away from family drama so she google searches international boarding schools and apparently the first one that crops up is on Ganghwa Island in Korea. Or so she says. The first one I find when I search is in the UK and [...]

    17. On one hand, it's an addictive book for a fan of kpop, I suppose. On the other, I am severely insulted. Consider me fuming and watch this space for an in-depth review. THIS IS DIFFERENT AND I WANT. It's like a homage to my kpop loving days.

    18. 2.5 starsI flew through this, which I mostly attribute to my being in the mood for a fluffy, uncomplicated contemporary like this. Technically, I really shouldn't have liked this because it was peppered with almost every cliché in the book but somehow, I ended up quite enjoying it. Sure, it was really silly most of the time, but I needed something like this. Yes, it was also quite problematic because of its, again, heteronormativity and most of all, its white superiority complex, but I'm willin [...]

    19. "I'm guessing that if you guys are famous like Sophie said, it's mostly based on pretty faces instead of actual quality of music."My rage would not stop me from turning the pages so that I could write my thoughts. Please excuse any grammatical errors-my mind can't even think right now it's so bad.If you love Kpop, other cultures, hate racist characters, and want a very well done book about a girl who moves to Korea and gets involved with a hot guy and the Kpop industryease look elsewhere. I hate [...]

    20. So the first thing you need to know before I get into this review is that I'm a Korean. I speak Korean at home, and although I live in Australia, I've visited South Korea several times.The second thing you need to know is that if you want to know more about Korea, this book should not be your source of information. To be frank, a lot of it is just plain wrong. Let me show you some examples of this complete ignorance of Korean culture.It surprises me what foods I crave when all I get is rice and [...]

    21. ***This review has also been posted on The Social PotatoThe only reason this book wasn't a nightmare for me was because it was strangely addictive and it was more comically bad (in my opinion), than rage-worthy bad.Grace is a young, rich, privileged, lady who chose to go to a boarding school in South Korea because she wants to get away from home. Then she proceeds to complain about all the things in Korea that are not up to her standards and how she misses home. Now, I understand cultural shock [...]

    22. This review is for an uncorrected advanced reading copy of this book.Okay, first, I feel I need to warn you: if you're excited about this book because you are a fan of Kpop, you need to know that know that there is absolutely no Kpop in this book. I know. But I'll come back to the music in a second.So this book desperately wants to be Anna and the French Kiss. It is not. Not by a long shot. I really wanted to like this book. I wanted this book to surprise me. I wanted the characters to be smart [...]

    23. Estaba tan emocionada por este libro(view spoiler)[Kpop?? #YESPLEASE(hide spoiler)]Pero ya no.Hello, I Love You by Katie M. Stout seems coldly calculated to offend and insult. It is racist, poorly written, and inexplicably plotted. Its understanding of Korea seems to be derived from watching Boys Over Flowers and like, two Kpop videos.Reseña de Beyond HallyuTodas las reseñas de este libro me dicen que me aleje de él, y creo que por primera vez esta vez les haré caso. Nope.["br"]>["br"]> [...]

    24. Rating 1.5White girl from Nashville moves to South Korea, meets the lead singer of a popular K-pop band and falls in loveHmph, cute love story exploring cultural diversity? You. Wish.Reading the short blurb for this book, are you thinking of picking it up because:a) You want some shallow fluffy read.b) You read the story unfolds in South Korea, and you'd love to know more about it's culture.c) You love Korean culture, you watch a lot of Korean dramas and movies, you listen a lot of K-pop, and [...]

    25. Finished :D 4.4 stars <3A romantic pop star fantasy with a heartbreaking splash of drama that just happens to happen in Korea.How is it that a semi-celebrity country girl from Nashville ends up in South Korea, at a remote boarding school when she doesn’t have any real knowledge/interest of the country or it’s customs? Grace’s running away from the shadows of her family and South Korea was the first and farthest from home she could find. To say her family relationship is strained is an u [...]

    26. My heart is so happy after reading this book. I loved seeing Grace and Jason's relationship grow from not being able to stand each other to love. There were times I was frustrates at Grace cos I just wanted to get with Jason but that ending and how he proves his love for her was too cute! I loved this book and would highly recommend
