This is an essay written by Janet Hong, who translated Ha Seong-nan’s novel into English.

한국문학 및 한국작가 등을 해외 일반인 및 전문가들에게 소개하고 한국문학에 대한 담론을 형성시키고자 제작, 배포하고 있는 KLN의 50호는 특집호로 제작되었다. 그 일환으로 국내작가와 작가의 작품을 번역하여 해외에 소개하는 번역가가 작품의 번역을 시작부터 출판하기까지의 과정을 서로 에세이형태로 서술하였다. 이 글은 작가 하성란과 같이 작업을 했던 영어권 번역가인 자넷 홍의 에세이이다.
