  • Editor’s Note
    • Abstract: April 2016 It’s quite amazing to think, at least for me, but it does still happen, from time to time. For example, I was thinking that this issue of AZALEA seemed quite different from the very first, nine years ago. It is somewhat smaller in size, for one thing; about two-thirds the number of pages. It features only one Korean writer born before 1950, the poet Kim Kirim. Volume One had six. And of those who translated the poems and stories, eight of the current issue’s team are professional translators or otherwise engaged, while three are what used to be called academics, graduate students, or teaching faculty in Korean literature. This trio notably includes Professor Emeritus Kevin O’Rourke, who ... Read More

  • Translators’ Roundtable with Song Sokze
    • Abstract: For this issue of Azalea, we introduce three short stories by Song Sokze, one of Korea’s most beloved writers and a gifted raconteur known for his witty depictions of life in Korea: “A Real Piece of Work,” co-translated by Sora Kim-Russell and Iou-chung Chang, “Roughing It,” translated by Jenny Wang Medina, and “Tale of Cho Tong-gwan,” translated by Jae Won Chung. The translators had an opportunity to engage the writer in a question-and-answer session about his work. Sora: I’d like to start with a general question. You first debuted as a poet but later switched to writing fiction. What inspired you to make this change? How is writing poetry different from writing fiction for you? When I first ... Read More

  • A Real Piece of Work
    • Abstract: The man in his late thirties pushed open the heavy mahogany door of the hotel restaurant and walked straight over to the woman without any hesitation. The woman quickly put the lip balm that she’d been applying back into her purse and rose from her seat. The man first checked to make sure she was the one he was supposed to meet, and then he removed his gloves. His movements were stiff, from the way he took off his coat and hung it on the back of the chair to the way he sat down, as if he were carrying out some sort of ceremony. He glanced around at the crowded restaurant, and seeing that everyone was busy with their own conversations and wasn’t paying any attention to him, he started talking. “I ... Read More

  • Tale of Cho Tong-gwan
    • Abstract: The name was Tong-gwan, surname Cho. He didn’t hail from a distinguished line. He had no renowned ancestors to speak of, left no heirs. As for how the name “Tong-gwan” became “Turdcan,” a few words couldn’t do it justice. But this is for certain. What turned an ordinary man like Cho Tong-gwan into an extraordinary character like Turdcan is that he was a creation of the very people who’d known him, built him up, and finally let him die. This is how he became a part of them. Everyone in Ŭnch’ŏk called Tong-gwan “Turdcan” when he was still alive. It didn’t matter if you were a three-year-old boy or an eighty-year-old woman. But if he was close enough to hear, you would be too scared to call him by his real ... Read More

  • Roughing It
    • Abstract: A trip with no open arms waiting at your destination and no consequences whether you get there or not. They agreed not to spend any money on this “hobo’s journey” but decided to set out from the station, where everyone starts a vacation. The first event on their journey was the weather: fat drops of rain began to fall the moment they met, so they wouldn’t be congratulating themselves on choosing a wonderful day for a hike. Manjae, Bongsu, Yŏngdŏk—the three met in front of Kŭmch’ŏn Station Historical Entrance and formed a triangle as they stood staring out at the rain falling on the plaza. Since Manjae had taken a high-speed train from Seoul, it might seem like their hobo trip was compromised from ... Read More

  • Briars and Fragrances, and: Goat and Horns, and: A Leaf of a Girl, and:
           The Skill of Love, and: The Need for Empty Places
    • Abstract: I loved a girl, a tiny girl, tiny as the leaf of an ash tree; I loved that tiny leaf. I loved its down, its radiance, its soul, its eyes. I loved its purity and its freedom—which you could almost see when the wind blew. I really loved a girl, a girl who was all girl, who had nothing that was not girl, a girl who would be nothing were she not a girl, a girl like a tear, a girl like sadness, a girl like a cripple, a girl like a book of poems, a girl no one can have forever—an unfortunate girl! Now she’s mine, mine alone, forever, a girl sad as the shadow of the ash tree. ... Read More

  • Excerpt from Road to the Racetrack
    • Abstract: R returned on February 16. Or perhaps it had been on February 15, or February 17. Having traveled halfway around the globe, upon arrival he had quickly fallen into confusion about time. True, he should have given some thought to the exact date and time of his arrival. But he had had no time to think about such details, plagued as he had been by a splitting headache, an inexplicable sense of anxiety, and a general lack of sleep during a flight lasting more than twenty hours. But that was not important. Time, in whatever form, was already given to him. Having gone through customs, he pushed his baggage cart and passed through the automatic door. Through the glass door on the opposite side of the hall ... Read More

  • Downpour
    • Abstract: Her husband worked as a salesman at an electronics shop until one day, while wandering the empty mall, he suddenly fell. Because he had always been a bit of a clown and enjoyed being the center of attention, his colleagues thought he was pulling a prank. That meant the time it took for him to reach a hospital and receive proper treatment was slightly delayed—even if only a minute or two—the very thought of which upset her to the point of tears. Fortunately, he was diagnosed with only a small concussion, and the doctor said that after a few more simple tests and a week or so of solid rest, there should be nothing to worry about. Her husband looked remarkably at ease in the hospital; he actually said he had never ... Read More

  • Border Market
    • Abstract: Cho was getting ready to leave when the call came into the consulate. A man who had illegally entered the country had been arrested near the border and was speaking Korean in a half-crazed state, so Cho was asked to come immediately. Cho crushed the cigarette he had been smoking and made his way down to the parking lot. The inside of the car was like a greenhouse, hot and humid. Two hours later, Cho arrived at the border control and met the man in question. Cho could immediately tell that there was something peculiar about him. His muddied and bloodstained shirt was ripped, exposing black and blue bruises. Foam gathered on his mumbling lips. Cho was told that at the time of his apprehension, his ... Read More

  • Introduction
    • Abstract: Born in 1908, Kim Kirim grew up to be a leading figure in the modernist movement in Korean literature in the 1930s. He earned his living as a newspaper journalist, writing reports during the day and composing poetry at night. A founding member of kuinhoe, an eclectic gathering of modernist writers and poets, he went on to befriend Yi Sang as his intellectual ally in this group. A literary rebel, Kim Kirim was not shy about criticizing many Korean poets of the earlier generation, whom he saw as being cripplingly sentimental and overly flowery in their use of language. Instead, he espoused a poetics of intellectualism and positivity, the disciplined use of adjectives, and the revitalization of our ... Read More

  • Translator’s Note: The Importance of Elsewhere
    • Abstract: As a translator from the Spanish, I find increasingly that I rarely have time to read books written in languages other than English or Spanish. Keeping up with the latest titles in Spain plus the whole of Latin America (not to mention reading as many interesting books as I can from English-speaking countries) already fills an indecent amount of my day and so, unfortunately, while I of course champion my translator colleagues’ work and know instinctively that most of it is excellent, I hardly ever actually sit down to read any of it. To my shame, in fact, I have to date only read one work of Korean fiction (Han Kang’s The Vegetarian, translated by Deborah Smith, and published last year in the UK by ... Read More

  • Excerpt from Korea: Notes from the Edge
    • Abstract: The bus pulled out of the terminal in Busan at seven in the morning. I felt as if we were slipping down the Gyeongbu Expressway like a paintbrush down a white wall. The road had barely any curves at all. We’d made this journey a couple of times on the KTX, the high-speed train that crosses South Korea, but the plan from now on was to save every last cent while we look for work. It was a five-hour journey to Seoul, with one 15-minute stop. At one of the stands selling food, Cecilia ordered a portion of jumokbap. I’ve developed a taste for these little balls of rice wrapped in a layer of seaweed, their centers filled with tuna and mayonnaise. The first time I tried them, my wife told me that jumokbap were common in ... Read More
