5. About the Book

One sweet lollipop in my hand.
“What should I do until this candy finishes melting in my mouth?”
The book opens with the main character in the story making crackling noises as he peels the wrapper off a lollipop. He asks his friends, “What should I do until this candy finishes melting in my mouth?”
He licks the lollipop and swivels it around in his mouth, but it seems like he’s not satisfied with it.
At that moment, he notices his colorful crayons. He carefully holds a blue crayon and starts to ponder. “Hm... what should I draw?” Finally he makes a decision and begins to draw a long line from one side of the wall in the room. The line is endless.
What is our main character trying to draw?

“Reading the life story of Dr. Joo Seung-hyeon reminds you that there isn’t anything you cannot do in life. The book gives you courage.”(Novelist Jang Gang-myeong)
After the publication of his book, the writer was interviewed by The Hankyoreh and the online news site ohmynews. Reviews for the book were published in eleven different major newspapers, including The Hankyoreh, Chosun Daily, Seoul Shinmun, and Hankook Ilbo. The writer was also invited to appear on TV Chosun.



4. About the Author

Joo Seung-hyeon worked as a propaganda agent in the demilitarized zone in North Korea from the late 1990s to 2002, when North and South Korea were waging psychological warfare against each other by playing music and other propaganda through loudspeakers. While he was preparing to enter the military academy, his father passed away, and he received a notice that his entrance to the academy had been postponed. In 2002, he decided to cross the border and defect to South Korea.
In South Korea, he attended Yonsei University and studied in the Political Science and International Studies Department; he went on to receive his MA and PhD in Korean Unification Studies. He has worked at different organizations such as the National Assembly. Currently, he teaches politics and Korean Unification Studies at various universities, is a member of the Education Committee on the Unification of Korea, and is an advisor for the National Unification Advisory Council.



5. Overview

In 2002, Joo Seung-hyeon was working as a propaganda agent in the demilitarized zone in North Korea when he crossed the border and defected to South Korea. Crossing the border took him only twenty-five minutes, but for more than a decade he has been trying to cope with the consequences of his choice, such as suffering from nightmares of stepping on a landmine in the middle of the demilitarized zone. After coming to South Korea, he studied politics and received his PhD in Korean Unification Studies in order to fight against the discrimination and stereotyping of North Korean defectors living in the South.
The book is a collection of essays based on Joo Seung-hyeon’s own life, and it reveals the discrimination against North Korean defectors. He calls himself a “castaway” in the book, a shipwrecked person during the historical disaster that divided a country in half. His essays are not just autobiographical, as they are also the stories of 30,000 North Korean defectors living in South Korea as well as the stories of those who have lived their lives without belonging to either the North or the South. Joo Seung-hyeon also calls them castaways. Reading the stories in the book, readers will realize that anyone in Korea could become a castaway if the country stays divided. The book is about the life of one North Korean defector, but it tells the stories of people who are living in the last divided country in the world.
