Science fiction has not been acknowledged as true literature in Korea, as realism has held a strong foothold. But Korean literature in recent times has discovered a new kind of reality since it began exploring fantasy and the realm of the future. The novelist Bae Myung-hoon has proved that science fiction in Korea can be a literary success through works such as Tower (2009), a serialized novel, and Goodbye, Artificial Being (2010), an anthology of short stories. Bae’s literary strengths are his logical narrative and description, original ideas and epistemological presuppositions, clearly distinctive characters, and the exploration of ethical human relationships.
