누나: /noo-na/ 1. an older sister (used by a younger brother).   2. an informal way of calling an older female from a male's perspective.
      
           Nina Kang is out of college and out of a job. When a friend introduces her to a teaching position in a South Korean high school, she uses what little she has in her savings to fly halfway across the world.
           With three months until she will actually start her new job, Nina decides to work part time at an English academy to make money to support her mom and younger brother back home in America. There, she meets one college student named Gunwoo Oh. 
           At first, the two's relationship never goes beyond that of a teacher and student. But with every new English word learned, Gunwoo begins to express more about himself and his growing feelings towards his teacher, or as he will soon like to call "noona."
          But how will Nina deal with those feelings when she's already taken?

Interesting. By informal, you mean like the male knows an older female for a long time to say "Noona" ? :^p

I really feel like "Leave Your Lover" by Echos matches this story.

I think that Jasmine by DPR LIVE and maybe Where You At by NU’EST would fit this story pretty well

I freaking love the cover of this book. And it sounds amazing ❤ I think I'll develop an obsession with Korea after reading this 😢
