Part of the Modern Korean Short Stories Series, the short story Weathered Blossom (bilingual) illustrates elders in love, but also discerns the substance of love, and distance between reality and feeling of love. The lady believes that love is beautiful only with lust, as it is the only way to be blinded. Thus she realizes elders in love can not be anything but a charming facade then humbly accepts reality. However, to say her lustless love is not beautiful is incorrect, as she humbly accepts the limitation of age and reality. – Lee Nam-ho, Literary Critic and Professor at Korea University
