  • Editor's Note
    • Abstract: I am bringing ten years' association with AZALEA journal to an end with this essay, this issue. I am so very grateful to Young-Jun Lee, whose creation the journal was, is, and will always be, and also to the translators, authors, and literary scholars in Korea, North America, and around the globe who have contributed their work to this effort. For Harvard University's Korea Institute, which has provided staff, office space, storage closets and shelves, and above all a spirit of dedication to the field, my gratitude is immense. Finally, my thanks to the International Communications Foundation of Seoul, which has provided both financial support over the years and encouragement for the effort here and in meetings in ...

  • Introduction
    • Abstract: In her early thirties Kim Sagwa is already one of the most distinctive and promising Korean writers of the new millennium. No Korean writer of literary fiction has a better grasp of the malaise that has come to characterize life in metropolitan Seoul, a climate of intense competition, pressure to succeed, and the expectation that one must look good. To investigate the pathology that has elevated the suicide rate in South Korea to record high levels and led to a negative birthrate and a divorce rate of approximately thirty percent, Kim in her first novel, Mina, focused on the lives of high school students and the overwhelming societal, family, and economic pressures to which they are subjected in a society that ...

  • Chunhŭi
    • Abstract: Monday, August fourteenth, seven in the morning. As usual I left for the cram school early in the morning. Out on the street it felt like a dozen suns were blazing at me. Those suns threatened and chased me all the way to the station. From the train I looked out the window at the black power lines going down and up from one pole to the next. My eyes also went up and down as I followed those lines to kill my boredom. And then out of the blue, people were roaring "Dynamic Korea!" A kkoaenggwari was going tang-da-tang-tang. Cheers of "Let's Go, Red Devils!" filled the World Cup Stadium. It was a KBS Radio One promotion for the Korean national soccer team. The morning news came on and the announcer was a woman. All at ... Read More

  • Strange and Ominous Presentiments
    • Abstract: Whenever I stay in Seoul something strange and ominous takes hold of me. That I was born and spent most of my life there can't prevent the city from mutating into a tableau of terror that leaves me gasping desperately for air. To keep my sanity and avoid being swept away, either I clutch at the benefits galore that I stand to gain from my time there—the hot hangouts that are always popping up in the media, the events, the privilege such as it is of bumping into people on a daily basis—or I try to resist being alienated from the "society" of Seoul in which these benefits are presumed to exist, even though the least effort toward that end requires outlandish expense, output of energy, and numbness to the ugliness all ...

  • P'ul Recumbent
    • Abstract: I was off my rocker that spring. All day I traipsed around like a lunatic, gadding about the city from morning to night, my volition siphoned to my feet. Don't you go another step, I'd order them, but do you suppose they listened? Sit-down meals were out of the question, so I nibbled on a loaf of bread as I walked. Late at night when I slogged back to my parents' apartment complex I cried tears of exhaustion. Hunger didn't attack me until I was back inside, pussyfooting through the dark living room. I'd have to dart to the fridge and shovel food into my mouth before plunging into bed. And sleep, heavy and sweet, swept over me like an earthquake and I was out cold till morning, when I opened my eyes and rushed back ... Read More

  • Speaking of Disdain
    • Abstract: After I dropped out of high school I worked part-time at a convenience store not far from the school. It happened to be spring, a time when my former classmates would be prancing about their university campuses in their new outfits. Meanwhile I the high-school dropout was making 1400 wŏn an hour. One morning after the rush-hour bustle I was twiddling my thumbs when the door opened. I uttered a robotic welcome and looked up. I've seen this guy before. He pierced me with a look. It was my high school PE teacher! He wanted to buy lotto tickets. There was hardly any conversation and yet I still remember vividly the stare he threw at me, the look in his eyes as if he was gazing at the wreckage of a collapsed building.My ... Read More

  • A Conversation with Kim Sagwa
    • Abstract: We have to confess that when we first saw the name Kim Sagwa translated as Apple Kim we assumed the translator had made a mistake. But now that we have signed copies of your books complete with an apple icon we know your pen name is for real. Can you explain how the name Kim Sagwa/Apple Kim came about?It came about accidentally. When I became serious about writing, I decided to have a pen name. I wanted it to be ordinary, boring even, because my real name is extremely noticeable, which I sometimes find very annoying. So I talked with my professor (I was an undergraduate back then) about having a pen name and he suggested p'odo (grape) and of course I immediately dismissed it. But on my way home I had a strange ... Read More

    • Abstract: This story takes place in the early period of the Joseon dynasty, in the summer, during the time when the fortress, the walls, and the four main gates of old Seoul were under construction. The chief carpenter was commissioned by the king for the project. During this period, although the kingdom was afflicted with drought and famine, a requisition was issued to the subjects of all the lands to provide labor. Unable to return to their homes, without lodging, workers were forced to work by day and sleep outdoors in the open at night. The fortress was divided into stone structures and earthen ramparts. The construction area measured 59,500 cheok (about 18 kilometers). As was promised in the terms of the requisition ... Read More

  • Sijo: Building the Base, Spreading the Word and the Practice
    • Abstract: I have become quite deeply interested in the sijo form. I started writing sijo in English some years ago, following the practice of my course on Writing Asian Poetry. A creative writing class, we follow models of Classical Chinese poetry, Japanese haiku, and then the Korean sijo. The sijo just started happening for me in English, and a collection of them, Urban Temple, was published by Bo-Leaf Books in 2010, followed by a dual-language, Korean and English edition from Changbi Publishers in 2012.The three essays that follow show ways in which the sijo form and practice have been brought outside of Korea and Korean-language practice into the English-language environment of schools and colleges in the United States. ...

  • Bringing Sijo to a New World
    • Abstract: My daughter grew up like most second-generation Asians: learning an instrument. Given the cultural diversity of a large city like Chicago, it was no wonder then that she—and, by proxy, I—eventually participated in a local music competition hosted by a Chinese cultural organization. Inspired by the Chinese-themed pieces my daughter was required to perform and the hundreds of young students I saw at the competition—the majority of whom were not even Chinese—I wondered why the same couldn't be done for Korea.I pitched my idea to other first-generation Koreans: an organization that would introduce Korean culture to young Americans through contemporary fine arts. My idea grew more concrete, and finally, in 2004, the ... Read More

  • Teaching the Performative Dimensions of Korean Literature
    • Abstract: Poetry from the premodern era in Korea and in most cultures was originally created to be sung, yet music and performance are key elements of the oral tradition that are often lost when transmitting knowledge about poetry and literature today. One of the challenges of teaching works from the Korean oral tradition arises from the hegemony of the written text over oral performance that persists in academia and contemporary culture. As a teaching fellow at Harvard University, I worked with my advisor, Professor David McCann, to address this imbalance in the way we teach Korean literature. This essay reflects on our teaching methods in these courses and argues for the necessity of teaching the performative dimensions of ... Read More

  • Publishing Sijo in an American Creative Writing Class
    • Abstract: Each semester, in Hartland, Wisconsin, I welcome 150 new high school students to my Creative Writing class with a course introduction and overview. I read intrigue, investment, and interest on their faces as I say, "My goal is for each one of you to be an award-winning or published author by the end of the semester." What follows is a curriculum focused on writers' markets and on students composing and submitting short stories, essays, and poems.I start with a haiku, a familiar form of poetry. "Oh yes, we did this in elementary school," Sarah says. She's typing on her laptop. "Haikus have the 5-7-5 syllable form. It's a Japanese form of poetry. And they're typically about nature or the seasons." She and the rest of ... Read More

  • Excerpt from All the Way
    • Abstract: My name is Sora.In case you're wondering, the Chinese character for the ra of my name means "water dropwort." It was supposed to be a different ra, the one with the Chinese character that means "fruit," but Grandfather messed up when he went to our local precinct office to report my birth. Well, maybe he didn't mess up, maybe he wrote the "water dropwort" ra because water dropwort was one of his favorite side dishes. How else could you explain it, those two characters for ra are totally different. Grandfather, you couldn't possibly have mixed them up, right? I don't remember much about Grandfather. Not that I had much time with him—he passed away the year I turned two, they said he had hepatitis from eating fish he ... Read More

  • The Clearing
    • Abstract: "Yŏbo, how about spring green?"Listen to me, using the endearing yŏbo for my boyfriend! You wouldn't have caught me using that expression before we moved here, not even in jest, I've never really liked it. It gives off the moldy smell of a long-term couple who've learned all there is to know about each other and who have run out of conversation, who with the aid of a magnifying glass for their failing eyesight count the growing wrinkles on each other's forehead, then rub each other's back before crawling into bed.Some might like that version of old age. I don't know what our old age will bring but I'm not losing any sleep over it. Sure, we aren't super juniors, we're not spring chickens anymore, we both made it to ... Read More

  • Clever Else Melts into Oblivion
    • Abstract: She heard the sighs of the wind, the whispers of the falling rain, the laughter of whirling snowflakes. She could hear the buzzing wings of a fruit fly as tiny as a freckle and predict where it would land next, and consequently how to kill it with one blow. But what good is such talent, however astonishing, if it doesn't ripen the crops for tomorrow's food? As long as she was fated to live with her two feet planted somewhere in this world, if she was to avoid melting like a stick of butter in the honest yet unsympathetic and savage heat of the earth, she needed to fully understand the inevitability and finiteness of an ordinary life—a life bound to the land, tilling the fields. And so it was that the farmer ... Read More

  • Introduction
    • Abstract: Im Hwa (林和) was the preferred pen name of Im In-sik (林仁植), born in 1908 in Naksan, present-day Seoul. Primarily a poet and literary theorist, Im was also an early film actor and critic.1 His literary theory devoted much attention to the novel form and the contemporaneous situation of Korean prose. As a leader of the Korean Artists Proletarian Federation (KAPF), Im became a staunch advocate of a purpose-oriented (mokchŏk) literature that would advance the proletarian struggle. In his own creative writing, after early experiments with new poetic rhythms and avant-garde typography, Im settled on a style of romanticism (nangmanjuŭi/romaent'isijŭm) often characterized by his favored second-person narrative mode of ...

  • Introduction to the Translation of Record of the Virtue of Queen Inhyeon,
           Lady Min
    • Abstract: Record of the Virtue of Queen Inhyeon, Lady Min (Inhyeon seongmo Minssi deokhaeng rok) is one of a cluster of closely related texts under the different titles of Story of Queen Min (Min jungjeon jeon), Record of the Virtue of Queen Min (Min jungjeon deokhang rok), and Record of the Virtue of Queen Inhyeon (Inhyeon wanghu seongdeokhaeng rok), which are collectively referred to as The Story of Queen Inhyeon (Inhyeon wanghu jeon). They tell the story of the second queen to the nineteenth ruler of the Joseon dynasty King Sukjong (r. 1674-1720), especially in the years from 1681, when she married the monarch, to 1701, when she died after a long illness. The centerpiece of the plot is her sudden loss of the king's favor ... Read More

  • Record of the Virtue of Queen Inhyeon, Lady Min
    • Abstract: Queen Inhyeon, Lady Min, the second wife of King Sukjong the Great1 of Joseon,2 came from a noble lineage with its ancestral home in Yeoheung.3 Her father was Min Yujung, who served in the government as the minister of military affairs,4 and her maternal grandfather was Song Jungil, who was the chief state councilor.5 She was born on the twenty-third day of the fourth lunar month in the Year of the Red Sheep,6 after her mother Lady Song had a strange dream. Auspicious marvels appeared above the house, and a sweet fragrance filled her birth room and lingered there for a long time. Her parents, seeing the signs as portents of momentous events to come, ordered everyone in the household to make no mention of them to ... Read More
