Product Details


The Noh Family is at once a fairytale about dreams coming true entwined with deliciously sinister family secrets. It whisked me straight to the neon lights of Seoul and pulses with enough family drama for days. I didn’t want to leave this captivating place that Shim has brought to life.” 
– Jesse Q. Sutanto, author of Dial A for Aunties

“Compelling and whip smart, The Noh Family is at once a dazzling escape into South Korea’s high society and a grounding examination of what it means to be a family. A twisty, turny, glamorous whirlwind of a book.” Sarah Suk, author of Made in Korea

“This book had me at the edge of my seat the whole way through! Filled with plot twists worthy of the best K-dramas, The Noh Family pulls you into its glamorous world and never lets go.” – Axie Oh, author of XOXO and The Girl Who Fell Beneath the Sea.

“Shim deftly employs all the whirlwind romance and jaw-dropping reveals of classic K-dramas via breezy prose and vividly drawn settings to explore classism, heartbreak, identity, and manipulation amid familial and societal expectations in this enticing debut.” – Publisher’s Weekly

“Just like Chloe’s favorite K-dramas, the novel sucks readers in from the get-go with lots of glitz, grit, and a hint of romance as well as a handsome assistant who always has an umbrella at the ready, mouthwatering descriptions of food, and cutting insights into familial and societal dynamics.
An enjoyable, pacy family drama.” – Kirkus Reviews

“Inspired by K-dramas, author Grace Shim has created a fast-paced adventure story with plenty of suspense and glitter as Chloe experiences the life of a princess. Shim manages to weave in plenty of references to Korean culture throughout the story, creating a strong sense of place for the reader. Interesting main characters will engage readers and the overarching theme will give plenty for book clubs to consider.” – School Library Connection
