This week the British Council announced the ten Korean Authors that it would be bringing over for the London Book Fair. Their aim was to bring a good mix of names that we might already know from existing translations, and names that have yet to make it into English. We have the following to look forward to:

Hyperlinks under the above names indicates an author that we’ve already covered in some way on LKL. And we’re looking forward to getting to know some of the others too – in particular Han Kang, whose Vegetarian is currently being translated into English by Deborah Smith (@Londonkoreanist).  All have made it onto Wikipedia apart from webtoon author Yoon Tae-ho, and the links are provided above to aid familiarisation.

It’s going to be a good April.
