Soothing Self-Reflection: Stinging Snowflake by Lee Dong-ha


Five out of 10 stories in Stinging Snowflake focus on remembering the past. The other five stories are based on what is happening in a rural village but also include narrative descriptions about the past. Through this descriptive method of retrospection, the author attempts to confirm one’s roots and explore changes in identity. His main characters examine where their lives began by talking about facts that have hardly changed, and expose in detail scars from childhood, being hurt and feeling lost as a young adult, lethargy in middle age, and the stability that follows.
