This is a novel by Shin Kyung-sook, published in 2010. It was originally serialized online from the summer of 2009 to the winter of 2009, and it was published in the book form after revisions and additions. It depicts the love and parting of youth in a tragic age, and focuses on the new lives of characters who have undergone despair and setbacks. In particular, the author uses her uniquely detailed and delicate language to describe the sublimity of people awaiting and loving others. 

2010년에 출간된 신경숙의 장편소설이다. 2009년 여름부터 겨울까지 인터넷에 연재했던 작품을 수정하고 추가하여 출간한 것이다. 작품은 비극적인 시대의 청춘의 사랑과 이별을 그린 것으로 절망과 좌절을 통과한 인물들의 새로운 삶에 주목하고 있다. 특히 작가는 사람이 사람을 기다리고 사랑하는 것의 숭고함에 대해 작가 특유의 세심한 문장으로 말하고 있다.
