Mujin represents the limits reconfirmed. It represents not only the line between the positive and the negative, and between the modern and anti-modern or the un-modern, but also the line between the normal and the abnormal, and between life and death. And the “Record of a Journey to Mujin” is a record of the experience of turning around at the line. – Chae Ho-seok (literary critic)

LKL adds: The translator of the text is not easy to find online. I’m guessing it’s Kevin O’Rourke and if I ever get this confirmed I’ll update this note.
