Online Korean Literature Night - Seoul Spotlight: Urban Realities 首爾聚焦:城市現況

Bae Suah is known as one of the boldest and most innovative voices in contemporary Korean fiction. Her latest novel published in English, Untold Night and Day, follows 28-year-old Ayami  through Seoul on a hallucinatory journey in search of her missing friend. Overlapping realities repeat, collide, and change in a meditation on the nature of seeking. Forging a path through urban life is also a theme of Frances Cha’s debut novel If I Had Your Face, which depicts four young women making their way in a world defined by impossible standards of beauty, ruthless social hierarchies, and K-pop mania. The two authors talk with Kelly Falconer about friendship,  gender roles and the search for meaning and connection in their fiction. In ENGLISH & KOREAN, and available online 24 hours later with CHINESE subtitles. 

This event is supported by the Korean Cultural Centre in Hong Kong

Bae Suah被稱為當代韓國小說中最大膽、最具創新力的聲音之一。她的最新英語小說《Untold Night and Day》,跟隨28歲的Ayami在首爾進行一趟幻覺之旅,尋找失踪的朋友。重疊的現實在與尋求本質的沉思中重複、碰撞和改變。 Frances Cha的首部小說《If I Had Your Face》也是該主題的開創之作,描繪了四位年輕女性在一個不現實的美麗標準、殘酷的社會等級制度和K-pop狂熱所定義的世界中前進的道路。是次分享會兩位作者與Kelly Falconer談論友誼、性別角色以及他們小說中對意義和聯繫的尋求。節目以英語及韓語進行,中文字幕將於24小時後提供在線上觀看。
