Heo Su-gyeong’s Good-bye, Atlantis is the story of a girl who dreams of paradise. Kyeongshil, daughter of a high-ranking civil servant in a wealthy family, is always lonely due to her father’s womanizing and her mother’s disinterest. Moreover, because she is overweight she becomes the target of jokes, and there is no one she can call a true friend. All she has for comfort in her hungry, lonely life are steamed buns from Uncle Mansu, and her diary. Chubby middle school student Kyeongshil becomes “Mimi,” “a name to forget her true self,” during the time she writes in her diary. When there is no one looking after her to show her any kind regard, where can a young girl turn to help her endure life?
