In North Gando, around 1932, a tragic incident occurs between the Koreans who first had to join the Communist Party of China for the Korean revolution and the Koreans who had to die at the hands of the Korean Communist Party members without knowing why. Kim Hae-yeon, Yeo Ok, and Pak Gil-ryong manage to survive the “Minsaengdan Incident” and later escape the siege of Chinese with other Koreans. Years later, Hae-yeon returns to Yongjeong and learns about Jeong-hui's last traces and her letter addressed to him.
This is a historical novel by Kim Yeonsu, published in 2008. It reconstructs the “Minsaengdan Incident” (an incident in which Koreans were massacre) set in North Gando in the early 1930s. This is the author's third historical novel that, based on a vast amount of data, reconstructs and restores the stories of individuals who are not officially recorded in history.
