  • Editor's Note
    • Abstract: The Korean peninsula is now in the midst of a series of remarkable and dramatic changes. People the world over are surprised, curious, and relieved, especially those who feared imminent war on the peninsula. In addition, the first female president of Korea is now in prison, and her predecessor was also arrested and soon will be tried. The current president, who has a very high approval rating, used the Winter Olympics as a stage for international diplomacy and led North Korea to the bargaining table. We do not know if Kim Jong Un will give up nuclear weapons, or if Trump will sign a peace treaty or pledge economic cooperation, but it is no exaggeration to say that these changes are seismic.With the news that North ...

  • Excerpt from Whale
    • Abstract: She can't breathe. Her eyes sting. Flames. Acrid smoke sears her nostrils. Spine-chilling screams. Black clouds blind her. Columns, the ceiling collapsing. Sparks flying, flames attacking her. A moment later, she opens her eyes. Her body is cool. The shadow cast against the wall by the grating is like a solid net. Someone sobs softly in the dark. She can hear the prison guard's boots echoing in the distance. She can hear someone shouting at the person crying. She curls up. The sobbing dies down. She closes her eyes. The footsteps recede. Tomb-like silence falls. Soon Chunhee is fast asleep again.The conflagration was indeed horrific. Over eight hundred people perished in the fire, and even more in the market where ... Read More

  • Twenty
    • Abstract: Early spring that year, I got on my bike every morning at nine without fail and headed for the vinyl café by the subway station. The early hour was so I could listen to music inside the DJ booth when there weren't other customers around, a special privilege extended by the DJ and owner—so he claimed, but rumor had it he wasn't the real owner. In return, I cleaned up the DJ box and tidied up the records. The DJ box was located in the middle of the left wall. A Kiss decal glittered on the front window, and tens of thousands of records sat on the shelves that made up the back wall.I carefully read the covers of the records, put on headphones, and immersed myself in the music of my choice. There were hardly any ... Read More

  • Excerpt from My Uncle Bruce Lee
    • Abstract: I first learned of Uncle's story when I overheard a conversation between my mother and a relative while falling asleep. I didn't know what "illegitimate" meant, but from the way my mother and the lady whispered that word, I felt it was something you couldn't really say aloud, like "penis" or "vagina." And so I pondered the word in secret for a long time, and vaguely began to understand the meaning after reading the "Tale of Hong Kiltong." It went something like this: you couldn't call your father father or your brother brother. It seemed to me that it was kind of a cool thing. After all, the illegitimate son, the hero Hong Kiltong, was a righteous bandit who helped people. Uncle reminded me of Hong Kiltong, too: a ... Read More

  • Pink
    • Abstract: It was a blisteringly cold day. In the foyer of a bank building with ATMs on the first floor, drivers-for-hire were huddled together in the tight space. Most were hoping to land customers heading in the direction of Seoul, almost impossible to find after eleven at night. The bank would soon close, and they would be driven into the streets. One of them took off his gloves, stuffed them into his coat pocket, and lit himself a cigarette. He was determined to hold out for someone heading to Seoul until he was driven from the foyer. The others were also shifting from foot to foot with lit cigarettes, quickly filling the small foyer with pungent smoke."Oof, lovely weather."A driver in a green down jacket with cheeks ... Read More

  • A Conversation with Cheon Myeong-gwan
    • Abstract: You have shared with your readers that "Twenty" is autobiographical. Have the experiences of the period contributed to your writing'That is true. "Twenty" is, in part, an autobiographical story. The story depicts what was a difficult time for me, but writing about it made me look back on how I saw the world when I was young, so it was personally meaningful, too. I think the experiences of agony, failure, and isolation in that time paved the way for my perspective on the world as a writer.Characters in your stories have a wide range of backgrounds and occupations. You said elsewhere that you worked in your twenties as an insurance salesman and a clerk at a golf accessories store, so I gather that working as a ... Read More

  • Five Poems by Kim Joong-Il
    • Abstract: At the end of my feet you rock like a shadow on water. Your feet, that had set off from the top of your head without a single rain-stained nautical chart flowed down, riding along on tears, sweeping over the crest of your dancing shoulders, past your elbows projecting like rocks and your small wrists, reaching your fingertips where ten small fingernails float like an archipelago, drawn into your breasts leaping like dolphins and the whirlpool-navel, then dropping deep into your groin, rising over your soaring knees purring like a tiny kitten, then when night falls floating down to the ankles' distant harbor and dropping ...

  • Five Poems by Lee Young-ju
    • Abstract: When I was young, my aunt told me the name of the woman who goes to the public cemetery to meet her lover. Having cut a corner from the hemp cloth that covered the lover's face, she carries it around in her pocket, my aunt said. As though her life was the fact of his absence. In the middle of summer, because it was so warm, I used to sleep under a hemp blanket. My aunt said that in the summer you had to be friends with frightening dreams, and that you had to call on each ghost by name. Her name, made of geometric shapes, changed every day, so how was I supposed to look at it' Falling asleep next to me, carrying on my sleep from beside me, such beautiful shapes. On warm nights, I tend to drool on the hemp blanket ... Read More

  • A Journal from the Alpha-Omega Kosiwon
    • Abstract: Like everything else in this world, it might be or might not be. It doesn't really matter. Supposing it disappeared. No one's to blame. Ten years have passed. For better or for worse, just as people might have died, the kosiwon might have died.It was while I was watching a news report titled "The Rat Growing a Human Ear on Its Body" that my memory of that secret room in the kosiwon—I could care less whether it still exists or not—came back. I don't know why. I was just watching "The Rat Growing a Human Ear on Its Body" and everything about that kosiwon came sprouting back all at once. Just like the human ear growing on a rat. Bizarrely. Sprouting.I momentarily immersed myself in quiet nostalgia as if I were a snail ... Read More

  • Roadkill
    • Abstract: Road 436 has no cameras and almost no traffic. There are only a few signs here and there that say "Caution: Wildlife Crossing." Several years ago, after two tunnels were built nearby, Road 436 grew quiet. Barring holidays, cars rarely come through. On an afternoon with rain falling like April cherry blossoms, a man's truck sped by. Three kilometers away from the motel, all vehicles on the road had the same destination.The unmanned motel towered high in the hills, the only landmark visible from the road. As soon as the building came into view on the left, the man turned the steering wheel widely with one hand and unbuckled his seatbelt with the other. Next, he pressed down on the power button of his incessantly ... Read More

  • Sister Thief
    • Abstract: The world I saw first was like a stage: a white paper cutout sun glittering on a pale two-dimensional sky, the wobbly silhouette of a tall poplar tree as if a child had drawn it, thick clouds of dust in the distance, and the colossal white ship moving slowly down the middle of a road.White flowers and a long white sheet covered the ship. Each time it moved forward, the sheet billowed like laundry drying on a line. At first, I thought there were huge white birds covering the ship, flapping their wings at once. The ship was so enormous you couldn't see what was on top, but there were wheels hidden at the bottom, rolling laboriously over the asphalt. What pulled that ship forward were countless people, every one of ... Read More

  • Forever a Narrator
    • Abstract: I am someone who often thinks about what kind of person I am. I answer when you call my name because I want to know what kind of person I am. But I find it strange that that's my name, so I keep calling yours instead.I am someone who often thinks about what kind of person you are as well. Are you cynical or not' Are you shallow or not' So you are cynical and shallow, but do you like me anyhow' I am someone who cannot love until I know, but sometimes I hold my breath during an unknowable caress.I am someone who picks up words. I am a collector of myself. I am the most insolent person to myself whom I frown upon. I am the kind of person who, though my bladder is about to burst, leans closer to hear people at a pub ...

  • Raising the Profile of Korean Literature Overseas
    • Abstract: It is well known that Korea was long treated as an obscure land, always left out of discussions about East Asia, which chiefly revolved around China and Japan. Sandwiched between its more famous neighbors, Korea was often peripheral, inconspicuous, and even invisible.Today, however, Korea is quite well known globally, both the North and the South. Of course, the two Koreas have become known in different ways. North Korea has been in the international spotlight due to its sporadic launching of ballistic nuclear test missiles that pose a serious threat to world peace. People frown and cluck their tongues at North Korea's unpredictable and insolent behavior. It is no wonder that international publishers are interested ... Read More

  • Introduction to Yi T'aejun's Travels in China
    • Abstract: Yi T'aejun refashioned himself many times during the half century of his recorded life. He was born in the Korean empire before the Japanese empire absorbed it, an event that took place when he was five. A leading novelist and essayist of the 1930s, this self-made petit bourgeois left Seoul for North Korea within a year of liberation. Although he was a founder of Kuinhoe, which espoused art for art's sake as opposed to the more socially engaged literature of KAPF (Korean Artist Proletarian Federation), he subordinated his art to politics after moving north. His two travel essays about the Soviet Union, published in 1947 and 1950, and his 1952 essay Travels in China, subtitled A New Great China, are works from the ... Read More

  • Excerpt from Travels in China: A Great New China
    • Abstract: October 1st is the National Day of the People's Republic of China, our brother and comrade nation. To celebrate the second anniversary of its establishment, and commemorate the great triumph of its founding, every organization in China, including the Federation of Trade Unions, invited people's representatives from friendly nations around the world. I had longed to visit China, and had the good fortune of journeying there as a member of the Korean delegation.China is such a venerable nation! An ancient civilization with the longest history and earliest development, China built the Great Wall, created the written characters widely used throughout the East, and invented gunpowder. It also crafted the bronzeware of ... Read More
