The effects of industrialization on Korean society are explored in the next five stories: 'Record of a Journey to Mujin' by Kim Seung-ok, 'The Road to Sampo' by Hwang Sok-yong, 'The Man Who was Left as Nine Pairs of Shoes' by Yun Heung-gil, 'Our Friend's Homecoming' by Shin Sang-ung, and 'The Poet of Wonmi-dong' by Yang Kwi-ja.
'The Road to Sampo' portrays the lives of laborers who wander through the ever-changing landscape of Korea mid-industrialization, longing for the physical and spiritual homes that they have left behind. Works by Hwang, who was as well-known for his political activism as his depictions of the instabilities and contradictions that marked Korea's transition period, have been translated into Japanese, Chinese, German, French, and Swedish. Last June, the author visited Sweden after his novel The Old Garden was selected as the 2011 book of the year by various local newspapers.
