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。
