I recently made a video about Haruki Murakami, and a few of oyu asked about some Korean authors you might like.

First is Kyungsook Shin, who I haven't read yet. She wronte "Please Look After Mom" which was a huge success internationally. She has had some scandals surrounding her though, because she plagarized a bit of her work from other authors...


Now onto the authors I HAVE read!


1. Han Kang

The VegetarianHuman Acts!


2. Chang Rae Lee

I read On Such A Full Sea sometime last year and really enjoyed it. It takes place in a distopian society and is a really interesting look into how we interact with people around us!


3. Young Ha Kim

I adore this author and if you're going to read anything on this list make sure you read Black Flower. It is about the true history of hundreds to thousands of Koreans being brought over to Mexico to essentially be slaves on plantations. Its a part of history I never knew about, and Young Ha Kim explains it in a really fascinating way.



Have you read any of these authors?!

Here are links to the books if you're interested in picking any of them up^^
