      Abstract: Among the oldest proverbs handed down in Korea, there is an expression: "Even rivers and mountains change after ten years." They wouldn't have said that after actually observing changes in the shape of rivers and mountains over ten years. In other words, ten years is enough to change people's worldviews, to make the rivers and mountains appear to have changed. However, over the course of the 20th century, Korean society experienced actual changes to the physical form of its rivers and mountains, which turned into metropolitan cities. The rapidity of change in late 20th-century Korean society has been notable, and the country's economic growth is often referred to as the "Miracle of the Han River." At a time when ... Read More

      Abstract: Genre fiction has maintained a presence in Korean literature at least since the colonial period, but not until the 1990s did it become a force to be reckoned with by the mundan, the Korean literature power structure. In the new millennium such established authors as Ch'oe Inho, Kong Chiyŏng, Ch'ŏn Unyŏng, Pak Mingyu, Kim Kyŏnguk, P'yŏn Hyeyŏng, Kim Chunghyŏk, Chŏng Ihyŏn, and Kim Sagwa have built on this breakthrough by incorporating genre elements in their works. At the same time, a variety of fiction writers specializing in a variety of genres and publishing their works in a variety of media have gained a wide readership. Thanks to the efforts of both of these groups of writers, Korean literature is finally ... Read More

  • Genre Fiction in Korean Literature

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: The term genre has drawn heated debate in discussions of Korean literature. Traditionally, fiction has been categorized primarily as either pure or genre. But recent years have witnessed attempts to deconstruct these boundaries.It is necessary first to clarify the term pure literature in the context of Korean literature. The concept of genre is based on a supposition that literary works are assigned to categories and subcategories according to certain criteria. In this sense, Korean literature is somewhat underdeveloped. First of all, Koreans tend to use the terms literature (munhak) and fiction (sosŏl) interchangeably, and that is true of this essay. When we christen a literary work as pure or genre we thereby ... Read More

      Abstract: The night I met her is still vivid in my mind. It must have been two years ago, and I was spending the night at an inn in Taejŏn. I was on a business trip and the inn was near the intercity bus terminal, where I could catch a bus to Okch'ŏn the next day. It was the monsoon season and I arrived in Taejŏn in the midst of a torrential downpour. I got off the bus and wandered the streets, but the area felt unfamiliar no matter how many times I crisscrossed it. That year the rainy season had stretched on longer than usual, so there I was under an umbrella my wife had packed for me. The bottoms of my pants were drenched in muddy water from all the meandering I had done. Finally I came across a decrepit sign that was ... Read More

      Abstract: The tale I am about to tell you isn't entirely true. Privacy issues have compelled me to modify certain parts of the account and several characters' defining features. This involved quite a bit of effort, and I would prefer that you refrain from attempting to ferret the changes. I hope you'll simply take this story as fiction. Fair enough' All right then, let's start. The main character of this story is one of my patients. She was thirteen when she first visited, a smart and gifted student already certified in two specialty areas. Her father had been killed in a traffic accident before she was born, but her mother was an exemplary parent who generously nourished her daughter's considerable creativity and talent. ... Read More

  • The Fastest of Them All

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: There once was a maiden who was the talk of the village for the swiftness of her work. How fast was she' It took scarcely half a day for her to grow silkworm eggs into larvae and to boil their cocoons and to weave them into silk with which to fashion trousers and matching top. The sesame-seed-size black eggs gathered at dawn became a set of clothing by lunchtime, a feat unimaginable for a mere mortal. Fast work is often slipshod, but her work was flawless and beautiful. The rich and the high and mighty were inclined to employ their own seamstress, but many were the madams and damsels who sought the maiden's services; she experienced no shortage of work, and her earnings were bountiful.This lass with the gold thumb ...

      Abstract: "Hurry up or you'll be late," my mother fussed as I gazed out the window of my studio apartment.I was wearing the dark suit I had been sent by the company. It felt solid but had a cold look, and just brushing up against something made it glisten like a rising wave. But my mother, looking at it front and back, said she liked it. "What's so great about a suit'" I told her. But that didn't ease the tension and anticipation I felt. She had arrived here after a five-hour train ride to give me a proper sendoff on my first day of work, and the unaccustomed journey had left her face clouded with fatigue and the aftereffects of motion sickness. Still, she said she was fine, and her beaming grin didn't waver.At the door I ... Read More

  • Excerpt from From Tonnio

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Who am I' What was my name' When I close my eyes I see a mirage rising in thin smoke. Deep beneath the sea the sun was up; in the sun there was ocean, and in the ocean there was a world within an underwater temple. Golden air suffused with time; the language of the beginning and the language of now, inscribed in the wind, in the waves, in sound, memories, dialogues, and sensations—all of them floating in the beautiful but futile land of eternity. I was alienated, and in the end banished, from that land. The I of the past was gradually extinguished and the I of the present gradually revived; I am reborn here, transcending time from the longago original me to the definite me who is bound to die. But where is here' ... Read More

  • Introduction

      Abstract: O Chang-hwan's poetry oeuvre is a rare gemstone in the history of modern Korean literature. Overshadowed by his contemporaries (luminaries such as idyllic poet Paek Sŏk, the influential poet-theorist Kim Ki-rim, and the beloved lyricist Yun Tong-ju), O has yet to receive the full critical appreciation he deserves, whether in Korean or English-language scholarship. His knack for simile, his extensive lexicon, and his youthful precociousness shine through at every turn of phrase in his limited but refined body of work. Successful in every style he attempted, O moved from initial experiments with the avant-garde, drawing inspiration from futurism and dada, to a mature, pessimistic blend of romanticism and decadence ...

      Abstract: Where should we start' Well, anywhere—it is after all my story. And likewise I can finish anywhere. Convenient, isn't it. Start where I want and finish where I want; a story I'll make my own starting right now; a story of my very own. Fair enough' Then let's say something was biting me. And we're off!There's a tiny problem, though: whatever was biting me couldn't be seen. So should I say something that couldn't be seen was biting the hell out of me' Possibly. There could be something that couldn't be seen that was doing something that couldn't be seen. There was, though, something that could be seen. Ants! But were those ants doing the biting' I don't think so. There are of course people-biting ants, but these ants ... Read More

      Abstract: Ojay invited me to pick gochu peppers with him, and I agreed to go. I'd asked him what I should bring. He said that we needed a sack to carry the gochu but he already had one. "Just bring yourself," he said, so that's what I did. It was a cool autumn morning."Come on!" Ojay's mother stood next to the car in her old fur coat. She was small and the coat was large, so it looked like just the coat standing there. Ojay said that it would be the three of us picking gochu."Alright," I replied. We put three empty sacks on the back seat and set off. Ojay turned the radio on. His mom passed me a tomato, telling me to eat it, and I held the tomato in my hand for a while before taking a bite. We were speeding down the national ... Read More

  • From the Front Line of Contemporary South Korean Feminist Criticism

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: The essays collected for this special issue embody a dynamic temporality in which the lives and voices of generations of women from grandmother through mother to daughter from the colonial era to the present converge and intervene with one another. While not explicitly addressing the question of how to write women's history, the articles have in common a sense of feminist temporality that opposes itself to a monolithic evolutionary temporality as well as to the politics of gender based on sameness. Here, it is worthy to note that Kim Jiyoung, Born in 1982, and From Sisŏn, two contemporary South Korean women's writings which I discuss in the subsequent section, make no reference to key events related to South ...

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: The term, #MeToo, was first introduced by African-American activist Tarana Burke when she coined the phrase in 2006. The #MeToo campaign emerged when American actress Alyssa Milano "encouraged women who had experienced sexual harassment or assault in public domains to share their stories on social media by posting the term as a hashtag."2 Its slogan, "Brave women who broke the silence," has exposed the perpetrators of sexual assault in their pasts, using the "politics of outing" to prevent further damage in hopes of keeping him out of the same position.The #MeToo movement aimed to uncover the incidence of sexual harassment and aggression in public realms by persuading sufferers to communicate their ordeals on ...

The Telegram Nth Room was a cybersex crime case that occurred from the second half of 2018 to March of 2020, in which a group of men had used the Telegram messenger app to post want ads such as "Seeking Part-time Sponsors" via which they would lure women, coerce them to film 'pornographic videos (sexual exploitation videos)' of themselves, and then sell those videos to a Telegram private chat room.2Feminist scholars and activists predicted Nth Room.3 Large spectator, distributor networks had been openly seeking illegal videos of women for much longer.

      Abstract: In 2019, Parasite became the first Korean film to receive the Palme d'Or at the Cannes Film Festival in France. South Korean President Moon Jae-in congratulated this milestone as "an outstanding gift to celebrate a hundred years history of Korean films." Parasite's prize-winning spree at overseas film festivals and events culminated in four awards at the 92nd Academy Awards: Best Picture, Best Director, Best Original Screenplay, and Best International Feature Film. Since the late twentieth century, the Korean film industry had long wished to be recognized as "universal," referring to Korean films as "Korean blockbusters" or "well-made" movies.1 With Parasite, the Korean film industry had finally earned the coveted ...

      Abstract: On August 14, 2018, the 1st Japanese Military Sexual Slavery Remembrance Day was observed. The date chosen in commemoration of Kim Hak-sun's press conference on August 14, 1991, this occasion marked the moment when the movement supporting Japanese military "comfort women," which refers to women who were sent to battlefields in the course of Japan's invasion of the Asia Pacific region and forced to live as sexual slaves in the Japanese military, became an official part of Korean history. The Moon Jae-in administration specified the Japanese military comfort women issues as one of the hundred tasks to be resolved within Moon's term, established the Research Institute on Japanese Military Sexual Slavery, and carried ...

      Abstract: The first poem of Kim Miryeong's poetry collection A New Shape of Wave renders a vivid portrait of someone. Someone who is aimlessly throwing away "monologue" in "the air," feeling some sort of "grief" under international flags hung proudly as if to competitively boast their status of a nation-state. Someone who finds it hard to take in the process and the affect of public celebrations and mourning, like "a homeless person who picked the wrong place to pay silent tribute" on official anniversaries such as "Firefighters' Day," "Arbor Day," and "the UN International Peace Day," or like a "mourner" at a funeral reception yelling for "more kimchi." Of course, nobody pays attention to such dissonance or irritation the ... Read More

  • Kevin O'Rourke: A Remembrance

      Abstract: It was in 1989 that I first met him. An acquaintance who worked at The Korea Daily, a short-lived English-language newspaper published in Seoul, brought us together at a place that sold Budweiser by the can. The first thing Kevin did was give me a copy of Our Twisted Hero, his translation of Yi Munyŏl's novella Uri tŭl ŭi ilgŭrŏjin yŏng'ung, which had been honored with the 1987 Yi Sang Literature Prize. The translation had been issued in 1988 by Minŭmsa, one of the premier publishers of Korean literary fiction."Review it," he said, and so I did.1 In my review I noted that "readers of contemporary Korean literature in translation owe a debt to Kevin O'Rourke for having temporarily forsaken his first love—Korean ...
