Okay, I don’t know if I told you guys this before but I minored in Asian Language and Culture, emphasis Korean which means I have studied Korean, the language for the past four years. The last class was a translation one for which I translated a story from Korean into English and I thought I’d share it with you guys. The story belongs in its entirety to Lee Jong Im and I so wish I could contract him or her to see if I have completely butchered it but since I did get a good grade in the class, I’m going to assume I did not do too badly. Anyways, here is the story. I recommend you read it. It’s very different, very magical realism (though this wouldn’t be the term I’d use officially). If you like Murakami, you might like this story a lot better than if you don’t. It’s relatively short and the mistakes are all mine.
