Park Kyung-ni

Park Kyung-ni (October 28, 1926 – May 5, 2008) was a prominent Korean novelist.

I watched a documentary about her. I remeber reading her novel, Toji( Land). It took her 25 years to write.
I rented  the "Toji" books from a Korean Library when I was in school summer vacation.
While I was reading the books, I  was able to smell  characters in the story and feel the temperature of the town.
I stopped reading the book because I couldn't stand violence of hard time . ( Korea was Japan’s colony at that time. )
I want to try again sometime...
