London Book Fair, day 1

Hwang Sok-yong, Kim Young-ha, Lee Seung-u, Kim Hyesoon, Shin Kyoung-sook, Yi Mun-yol, Krys Lee… and those were just the Korean literary figures that we got to see today. There were plenty more talks – mainly focusing on the Korean publishing industry – that we didn’t get to, thanks to unfortunate scheduling clashes, and writers from other countries who shared the platform, and moderators and translators too.

Each day’s events is going to take several days to write up, so in the meanwhile here are some photos of the first 24 hours.
