    聞いてくれたまえ。 これは、この地の救済不能の独裁者のひとり、全斗煥将軍が国を統べていた時代の話だ 。 ということは、三十年余りの歳月を経た話ということになる。しかし、歳月なんぞ毒にも薬にもならないということを、我らが主人公が身をもって証明してくれる。彼は、その頃からいまに至るまで、依然として指名手配中の人物だ。 こんな書き出しで始まる物語は、時代の狂気に呑み込まれて、人生をめちゃくちゃにされた一人のタクシー運転手の物語だ。 いや、より正確に言うならば、ナ・ボンマンという名のそのタクシー運転手もまた、語りあげられた歴史物語の中に登場する人物のひとりでしかないのかもしれないが。

    TOTTALY DUBLIN / April 25, 2015

    Despite the considerable international success of its musicians, filmmakers and contemporary artists, South Korea has never really figured on the global literary landscape. It’s difficult to know why exactly, especially from this vantage. The Korean language enjoys a comparatively belated relationship with the written word: it was without its own script until King Sejong introduced Hangeul to the masses in 1446. A less speculative explanation would point out that not very much of the work has been translated. This year Dalkey Archive has teamed up with the Literature Translation Institute of Korea to publish twenty-five new translations of contemporary Korean fiction. Totally Dublin took a look at three.

    Memory, Time, and Politics   By Son Jeong Soo on Oct 22 2014 08:20:08 Vol.1 Autumn 2008 In a country where industrialization and democracy took root simultaneously, how will young Korean writers reflect on and investigate the issues of Korean modern history? These writers examine society’s social problems through a new reality and through new techniques. Within the prism of their vision, what will be the reality of the Korean society that they perceive?     After the 1990s, Korean society entered a new phase that was different from the past. People began agreeing that Korea was a rare case among developing countries in that it had accomplished both industrialization and democratization. Upon the realization of industrial and democratic goals, matters of individual desire begin to precede attitudes emphasizing public ideology. Due to the intimate relationship between literature and society, this kind of social change has been organically reflected in novels. The concern of novels has gradually shifted from the public sphere to the private sphere. The position of nation, people, and ideology in novels has been replaced by matters of domesticity and private life such as issues of family, sexuality, social minorities, and so forth. The changes are evident in the form of the novel. Varieties of media became more prominent, and the walls between high culture and low culture have broken down. With these social changes, the boundary between literature and other media has continued to collapse. Traditionally accepted aesthetics has lost its ground in contemporary Korean novels.

    Dear Reader, I Leave Us a Void, Let Us Fill It Together!: Writer Lee Kiho Author's Profile By Han Eun-hyeong on Oct 20 2014 09:50:26 Vol.22 Winter 2013       Han Eun-hyeong: You’ve changed residences from Wonju to Seoul and then again from Seoul to Gwangju. Do you feel a great difference? For example, in your most recent short story collection Who Is Dr. Kim?, which you wrote while living in Gwangju, you didn’t just write “To Me, A Very Ethical Piece of Underwear” there, and you were actually thinking of leaving that short story out.   Lee Kiho: I do really feel a difference. Since it’s a change of space, the people you meet are different, and even my writing seems to have changed. Whenever I publish a new book I see how I’m changing—maybe as a kind of finishing of one stage and moving on to another. “To Me, A Very Ethical Piece of Underwear” seemed like it really went better with my second collection. I don’t think it was just a question of where I wrote that story.
