That post title was perhaps a bit too much…
But check Indieful’s post out, because it combines some news about a new book (in Korean) from Kim. Indieful begins with:
It’s been quiet from MOT for a while, but at least founding member Aeon still has a few projects ongoing. Featuring music not that far from MOT paired with intriguing visuals, yesterday he posted a trailer for author Kim Young-ha’s new novel 무슨 일이 일어났는지는 아무도, that’ll be available from next week: (Nobody knows) What happened. (UH that last thing is the link to the totally killer video. Ed.)
BTW – I should say that I”m completely boggled that the Korean I see as “무슨 일이 일어났는지는 아무도” is translated as (Nobody knows) What happened. Which to me looks more like “Does anyone <WHAT?> what work happened.” Oh well.. my Korean is lame. ^^
Indieful also saw Kim in Sweden:
month ago I attended a Korean literary forum in Stockholm where Kim Young-ha himself read an excerpt from Whatever Happened to the Guy Stuck in the Elevator? (엘리베이터에 낀 그 남자는 어떻게 되었나?) that after also being read in Swedish soon convinced me I have to seek out some of his works
Which would make me very jealous, except I’ll be seeing Kim this weekend in Sinchon. ^^
Check out the post and the video, which I don’t understand, but even an old coot like me recognizes is super-cool to watch.
Let’s just hope that Kim Chi-young is already hard at work translating this!
