Since 2008, Consumer Trends in Korea has been released every year-end, offering indicators of the Korean economy and consumer culture for the near future to leaders and executive managers in every industry, in addition to general consumers. His critical study on society's fervor for noted brand-name products, Luxury Korea 2007 drew an enthusiastic response from readers and selected as "the book of the year" by The Chosun-Ilbo. Based on statistical data on Korean consumer preferences, he co-authored 2011 Korea Consumption Map.
