Barry and Charly’s “Big Time Korean Podcast!”: The Jimoondang/LTI Korea Collection and Hwang Sun-mi’s “The Hen Who Dreamed She Could Fly.

VidcastSquareOnce again (ok, for the second time) Charles Montgomery from right here at KTLIT and Barry Welsh from SeoulABC get together to discuss Korean literature, particularly the Jimoondang/LTI Korea Collection of books and Hwang Sun–mi’s The Hen Who Dreamed She Could Fly.

For those who might be interested in particular aspects of the video, a quick look below it will reveal the time at which each segment begins.

This is a new service which we expect will catapult us into the late 20th Century!

  • At 1:48 we discuss the Jimoondang / LTI Korea collection of short fiction, 25 books of pretty darned good literature.
  • At 2:29 we discuss Kim Young Ha’s Photo Shop Murder and it’s OVER $2,000 price on the internet
  • At 4:36 we discuss Choi In-ho’s awesome, Deep Blue Night, a Korean buddy, road-trip set in California.
  • At 8:00 we disagree on Yi Sang’s The Wings, one of the most famous works in Korean modern fiction.
  • At 11:13 we disagree on Gong Ji-young’s Human Decency
       It is worth noting that in all these disagreements, Charles is correct and Barry is in error.^^
  • At 14:08 we chat about Hwang Sun-mi’s famous The Hen Who Dreamed She Could Fly, and Barry actually goes a far bit into persuading me to like it.^^
  • At 21:35 it’s recommendation time.  Barry recommends Gong Ji-young’s Our Happy Time translated by Kim Sora-Russel and a book, eleanor and park written by a US author with the unlikely name of Rainbow Rowell. Charles recommends Paju Book City, and all ends on a happy note.

    1. Fun watching, good rhythm, and nice tie! I’m glad to see the bookshelf, and not only in the background but in action. Keep up the good work for the good cause!

    2. Thanks Stephane… obviously, we’re still working things out.. still want to get down to 20 minute and tighten up the set… shorten the intro… fire Barry^^ the usual things..

    3. honestly? I ‘d rather fire Barry, but no one else would do the job?
      LOL… we’re upgrading each show (if you saw the first one you’ll know what I mean). That chair had to be borrowed from my division office.
      Next time I think I’ll make him sit on the ground!
