Kwon’s third collection of poems, Love and Beginning, has been published in 33 volumes in the K-Poet series. Poet Kwon Park received a lot of attention when he won the Kim Sooyoung Literary Award for 『It’s My Turn to Understand』 and expanded the world of his own work through his second collection of poems, 『Is It Beautiful?』. In this collection of poems, Love and Beginnings, the poet writes, “I go from the history of women and the reality of women to write about human beings.”
