Korea: Breaking the barriers
Collection of translated stories to provide boost to Korean literature: The Korea Times
In an international environment in which Korean culture is increasingly making inroads into English-language speaking countries, Korean literature has been something of a “little brother’’ to K-pop, K-movies, K-dramas, and the increasing popularity of Korean food.
But make no mistake, Korean literature is arriving. This development is underscored by a comprehensive new collection of stories from Asia Publishers that promise to help Korean literature take a big step up onto the world stage. Over the past year Asia Publishers have released three collections of 15 stories each, collections that promise to redefine Korean literature in English while also making the literature much easier to understand.
