KLN Vol. 61’s Bookmark section features the full-text translation and illustration of writer Kim Tae Yong’s “The Phantom Schoolgirl Army.” After being diagnosed with a brain aneurysm and separating from the man she loved, the protagonist gives herself the name Cha-jeong Lee and spends the rest of her possibly short life in Suncheon. At her neighbor Mok-won and Bo-kyeong’s house for dinner, Cha-jeong learns that Mok-won is making a documentary on the Phantom Schoolgirl Army, which prompts her to take a hard look at her past, examining the “context” that has been her lifelong task and the large void in her life.

KLN 61호 북마크 김태용 작가의 <환상의 여학생 부대> 영문 번역 전문과 관련 일러스트다. 뇌동맥류 판정을 받고, 사랑했던 “그”와 이별 후 자신에게 새로운 이름 이차정을 지은 후 얼마 남지 않았을 수도 있는 삶을 순천에서 보내고 있다. 차정은 우연히 옆집부부의 저녁식사 초대에 응해 대화를 하다 “목원”이 “환상의 여학생 부대”에 관한 다큐멘터리를 찍고 있다는 말에 자신의 과거로부터 평생의 숙제였던 “맥락”과 마음 속 큰 구덩이의 근원을 추적한다.
