    Reader  광장 Author In-hun Choi ´ Paperback Download Ú Connecfloor 광장 Author In-hun ChA story written by a then 24 year old Choi In Hun follows our philosophy student protagonist Lee Myong jun torn between North and South Korea Lee is exactly the sort of introspective narcissist 20 something philosophy student you’d expect wrestling with his righteous indignation and somewhat misogynistic tendencies He wears his overly earnest heart on his sleeve and is frankly a mess Disillusioned by the corruption of the South he escapes to the North but instead of finding the excitement of revolution discovers a flattened ash grey world In the end he chooses to escape to a third place a neutral county The book reminded me of my uncle who wrestled with the same demons and disappeared one day Given up for dead it was only 40 years later that my mother learned he had left for North Korea His name appeared in the national paper as
