Please introduce yourself to our readers.

 

Hello, my name is Park Yeon-jun. I write poems and prose, and now I am writing novels, too.

 

Why did you decide to become a writer?

 

I think I have always loved stories since I was young. That is why I was interested in writing, reading, and listening to others. Among those, I found that reading interested me the most and I think that led me to become a writer.

 

What do you think is the most important thing when you write?

 

The reason empathy is vital is that you need to think from the perspective of a chair when you are writing a poem. Not how men would view an ordinary chair. The sadness and the form of the chair from its perspective; the people who stay for a while and leave the chair must think about various ideas like how the chair would feel. Even things in this studio, these small cables, lights, three of you sitting here, can be the content. And I like to write by starting from such very small things.

Is there a reason for your fondness for ballet?

 

Words used in real life differ from those used in poems. We continuously seek different expressions and try to let the words float in the air and find more beautiful words. The same goes for ballet. The poses one sees in ballet are not those from our everyday lives. The two fields bear many similarities. I felt as though these two fields have similar styles. I find it somewhat entertaining and it provides a lot of inspiration.

 

Why do you write?

 

"Why do we need to write?" I don’t think I know the answer to that. I think it's a certain desire. A desire to speak. But in a different way. When people read a certain book, they are able to empathize, feeling as if they have actually experienced something that has not really happened to them. I think the reason is that the author has been able to convey the story in such a way that the readers feel involved. I think I want to do something like that, through which I can convey certain stories in my mind to the readers as well.

 

What kind of writer do you aspire to be?

 

I do have an idea. I want to be a writer who finds happiness in writing something, and not someone who is having a hard time because of writing. 'Ah, I am so happy that I am writing something.' I want to be a writer who thinks like this. That is what I have in my mind.

 


Yeon-jun Park’s One Line Reading - Certain Month Certain Day

If life consists of 1% radiance and 99% platitude,
I have decided to love the 99%.
The quince let me know that any day where tiny pieces of mystery is mine.
That my life is the quince of a certain month and certain day.

I didn’t write this because of Covid-19, but we are living in such times. Since we are not able to enjoy the ordinary days that we used to take for granted. I recommend that those who miss such days read this book once.
