When We Dream
A trilogy about one of the most popular trends of our era
K-pop stands for South Korean pop music, and is one of the biggest global phenomena of our time. The music made by these boy and girl bands is breaking records worldwide. ‘Idol fiction’ (stories about K-pop stars) is read by millions on Wattpad and other sites, and K-pop is currently a top trend for the target group of female new adult readers.
In the trilogy When We Dream, Anne Pätzold tells an enchanting love story about an ordinary girl who falls in love with a member of the biggest boyband in the world.
Nineteen-year-old Ella has been living with her older sister Mel in New York since their parents died. The city is too big, too noisy, too crowded for Ella, and all she really wants to do is shut herself away in her little bedroom with her books and try to forget about her grief. But then Mel, who works as an events manager, asks her to come to an awards show and act as a babysitter to Liv, Ella and Mel’s younger sister. Ella can’t think of anything worse, but in the end she agrees to go – little knowing she’s just made a decision that will change her entire life. Because that’s the night she meets Jae-yong. She has no idea he’s a member of the biggest and most successful K-pop group in the world. All she knows is that she’s never felt so attracted to anyone as she is to the young man with the dark brown eyes and the smile that turns her world upside down from one moment to the next. The K-pop world, however, has its own rules...
