3. Book Intro

 

Here, there are two very different women like a “Camel” and a “Penguin.” One woman is honest and cool. The other woman thinks that she has a lot of pretense about what she says and does externally.
However, these two women are fun and interesting to each other. They start writing an “exchange diary” like young girls with a friendship no one else could invade. The two women who exchanged diaries that recorded everything they saw, felt, and experienced in their lives as female adults, were Yozoh and Lim Kyung-sun.
Lim Kyung-sun, is a vetran “author.” She began living as a writer since 2005, and she has published her 20th book including a revised version. And Yozoh, is a woman who connects stories and herself in many ways, ranging from musicians, writers, host of book podcasts, and owner of bookstore “All-Right”.
How did these two women’s secret stories end up in a book beyond the fence of chatter? What made them continue recording their own chats about ‘living as a woman, laughing and crying and laughing again after crying?’
The book started out from a project on Naver Audio Clip called the “EXCHANGE DIARY BETWEEN LIM AND YOZHO,” which two writers exchanged and shared their recording diaries. Recently in Korean publishing industry, audio-book production and distribution are becoming increasingly more active, but the two authors boldly chose to produce audio contents first and then publishing it as a book.
With Lim’s low and hard voice and Yozoh’s slow and soft voice, they created a dialogue of friendship and sympathy, which gathered many positive responses from women who actively listened to them, even though they didn’t have time to read a page during their busy lives.
While the two authors released the series of exchange diary on the Naver Audio Clip, audiences repeatedly asked them to upload a script. There were many good phrases used and it was difficult for listeners to write them all down. Six long texts were added to the 30 recorded files, which finally became a book.
From work to love, life, menstruation, sex, travel, money, freedom and the daily pains and battles they had to endure to get all of these, their writing as women without boundaries finally released to the world.

The author, a leading lyricist of Korea, has divided her concept into three “languages.” First, the “language of relationships” tells us that “drawing a line” with others is important and that it is not for distancing but for opening our minds and becoming closer. Second, the “language of emotions” offers a glimpse into her expressive ability to describe the unique emotions behind words. Third, the “language of self-esteem” is filled with words that make us reflect on our attitudes and ways of life. Kim’s success as a lyricist tells the story of the painstaking and harsh process of survival without any unnecessary fluff.

3. Book Intro

 

Makrye Park- I Can’t Go Just Yet is the story of a woman who was named “Makrye” (meaning last in Korean) for being born as the youngest of seven sibling. Starting from the first half of her life, which can’t be read without crying, this story becomes ridiculously exciting after she becomes a Youtuber, later meeting the CEOs of Youtube and Google. It also includes behind-the-scenes story of PD Kim Yura, who brought her grandmother’s charm from behind the camera, and answers questions of many people interested in YouTube production, including fans of the YouTube channel Korea Grandma.
When you open the book, it begins with the first half of the life of Park Makrye, who was born in 1947. The youngest daughter of a farmer, she grew up doing all the house works and was not allowed to learn to read as a woman. She got married at age 20, but had to raise her three kids by herself as her husband was never home.Starting from hard labor work, she went on to work as a fruit seller, malt seller, flower seller, maid and restaurant worker. She tried her best just to live, somehow, but was scammed twice by the harsh world. After diverse hardships, she opened a small restaurant in Yongin and worked there for 40 years, starting her work every day at 4 a.m. Living hard just to make it to the next day, at 70 years old she thought she would die that way.
One day, Park Makrye was diagnosed with dementia risk at the hospital. Her sisters were all diagnosed with dementia in turn, and she did not know when her time would come. Hearing the news, her granddaughter, Kim Yura, rushed over and nagged her to travel to Australia. She also gave up her job because she couldn’t let her grandmother die like that...
Nobody knew that her trip to Australia with her granddaughter would be the beginning of the second phase of her life. “My life has turned upside down, like flipping a mattress over,” she laughed with mighty guffaw. She never imagined that fans from all over the world would like to her, that she’d be invited to Google I/O and visit Google HQ for 2 consecutive years, or meet one-on-one with Youtube CEO Susan and Google CEO Sundar. Everything in this world may seem like dumb luck, but reading this book, you will see that this 70-year-old’s hard work has finally born fruit.

3. Book Intro

 

The term montage usually refers to a composite picture for finding a suspect. It’s also used in filmmaking to refer to a technique in which a number of short shots are sequenced together to condense time and information. This, the first collection of prose by director Park Chan-wook, reveals a side of Park never before seen on the big screen. It forms a montage of Park’s charming impudence using columns, essays, written/self interviews, and production journals. Park’s journey to becoming a globally-known director and the stories that take place between the shots of a film camera are humorously told through the director’s own words.

3. Book Intro

 

If one were to ask who history’s greatest soccer player in both Korea and all of Asia is, the answer would be the “Son-sational” Son Heungmin. The world-renowned Son is always in the spotlight due to his excellent skills, humanity, and fashion sense. He is indeed a superstar. Despite his fame, he is still an earnest 27-year-old young man who is always wearing his innocent smile.
Readers can hear true stories about Son behind the spotlight: strict training since his childhood by his father, a teacher who was not bound to conventional education; an arduous period during which he overcame the difficulties of living away from home and was a star player on every team he played for in Hamburg, Leverkusen, and London; his supporters and Tottenham; and the personal experiences he had as a member of the South Korean national team.

You may have encountered artists before at the Seoul Arts Center, the Sejong Center for the Performing Arts, and the National Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art, but some artists are probably so unknown to you that you’ve never even heard their names.
Why and how were these artists and works of art selected by the author? The artists and the works in this book deliver encouragement and consolation to those living through the current reality of COVID-19.
As you read this book, you will realize that these passionate artists who so desperately stayed true to their values are not special people with extraordinary genes. You will find that their works can still make you smile or cry even without requiring any background knowledge. You will see that art doesn’t have to be something that is elegant, showy, and tough to understand.
