To tie in with a couple of Korea-related events at the London Book Fair, the KCC is hosting an event with two Korean authors on 15 April, chaired by SOAS’s Grace Koh.
Choe Yun will be known to many LKL readers as the author of There a Petal Silently Falls – the first book set for the Korean Literature Essay Contest. So sad that the competition has now been suspended. Choe came to the KCC in 2009 to talk about her work.
Possibly less well known in the UK is Jung Young-moon, whose A Chain of Dark Tales, translated by Markus S Braun, was published in English in 2011.
Both authors will be at the KCC for the event.
