Jordan Peterson’s self-help book “12 Rules for Life: An Antidote to Chaos” has become one of the biggest best-sellers this winter in South Korea, after translated videos of the clinical psychologist’s lectures and interviews criticizing political correctness and feminism have gone viral here.
*Antidoe: 해독제, 해결책
*Political correctness: 정치적 올바름
*go viral: 바이러스성의, 유명해지다
 Local publisher Maven said Friday that Peterson’s book had sold over 105,000 copies since its release in late October, topping major online retailer Yes24’s sales chart last week.

 Sung Ki-hoon, chief editor at Maven, suspects a growing number of men who feel at a disadvantage is behind Peterson’s popularity. The author rose to fame as an ardent critic of left-wing identity politics.
*chief: (계급이) 최고의
*at a disadvantage: 불리한 위치에 있는
*behind something: ~뒤에
*rise to fame: 유명해지다
 “In my opinion, the fundamental reason (behind his popularity) is the fact that more men feel they are facing reverse discrimination compared to women,” Sung told The Korea Herald.
*reverse discrimination: 역 차별
 Sung knew Peterson was a controversial figure before he decided to publish the book in Korea, as he said some publishers opted out given the controversy surrounding Peterson’s political views.
*opt out : (~에) 참여하지 않기로 하다
 He explained it might be harder to separate Peterson’s political views from “12 Rules for Life,” but he decided to go forward, as the book “fills the void” in a way no other book has here.
*go forward: 진행하다
*void: 빈 공간
