"The Plotters" by Un-su Kim
translated by Sora Kim-Russell


This is to invite you to join us for our monthly meeting at the North Terrace Cafe, Wednesday, March 27. 

At our next meeting on Wednesday, March 27,  we will be reading "The Plotters" by Un-su Kim, translated by Sora Kim-Russell. We read Sora's translation of "The Hole" by Pyun Hye-young a couple months back. 

The  original Korean book is titled 설계자들, by 김언수 .  If you can't find it in Korea, you can download it in its Kindle version.

The Plotters tells the story of Renseng, a jaded assassin who startles himself by realizing—somewhat belatedly—that he has a moral code, a sense of honor, a soul.  All of these will prove to be perilous liabilities in his world.  Un-Su Kim is a tremendous writer, and he’s crafted a smart, stylish, and surprisingly moving thriller.

Join us at 7PM in the basement of North Terrace Cafe, near Anguk or Jongno-3ga station on Line 3 (orange line). 

Warm wishes,

Yonjoo Hong
