Korean prose literature in English translation

Here is a list of Korean literature in translation, in alphabetical order of author, where that author is the sole author represented in the publication. It includes collections of short stories by that author. A listing of multi-author anthologies can be found here. If you think I’ve missed a title, let me know via the contact form at the bottom of this page.

To find short stories by a particular author that have been included in multi-author anthologies, click on the author’s name and you’ll be taken to that author’s page on this site which has more detail on short stories (if any) that have been anthologised.

The listing contains links to reviews, where available, written by LKL, Charles Montgomery (CM – mainly on and Tony Malone (TM – on Tony’s Reading List). The star rating, where given, is LKL’s. As explained here, the rating system is entirely unscientific.
