About This Book

Moon Ji-hyuk's fourth full-length novel, "Elementary Korean," which began his work by releasing his short story "Chaser" in 2010, was published as a series of Minumsa "Today's Young Writer." It is an autobiographical novel starting from the writer's experience.

When I see Moon Ji-hyuk, the main character of "Elementary Korean," who teaches Korean in New York while dreaming of becoming an immigrant writer, I naturally think of Moon Ji-hyuk, a lecturer, translator, and novelist. How far is the novel true and where is it fictional? According to the author, all novels are "revised autobiographies." The novel, which was created as a result of "saving the novelist's life under a different name," is both fictional and authentic in its own way.

Another truth that Moon Ji-hyuk shows, "Elementary Korean," allows us to look at Korean from a stranger's perspective and look back at our lives using Korean one step away. The novel, which consists of 98 episodes starting from the "Elementary Korean" class, is a story of a life that cannot be 100 points, and a life that does not flow as planned as the answer.
