About This Book
"Don't follow the shadows" Hwang Jeong-eun's first full-length novel. Eungyo and Mujae got to know each other while working in an electronic shopping mall just before demolition. Mujae calls Eun-gyo, who was lost and wandering away from the group. Mujae says, "Don't follow the shadows." (p. 10) These lonely people call out the scenery of losing their shadows. Mujae's parents, who are "probably in debt" (page 18). Uncle Yeo's friend who says, "These days, shadows stand up," (page 47). Uncle Yeo who says, "So when my shadow stands up" (page 47). Mujae catches Eun-kyo, who secretly goes to work with shadows at the front." "Shall we sing?" I asked.
It is convenient for everyone to call a kiln that looks different, but I think it is "considerable violence in terms of the situation of the kiln" (page 41), "what if I stepped on it, I was surprised by the frog's weak toes," and "If I were just poor, I shouldn't call it a slum" (page 126). I believe that these precious hearts still exist here.
As Hwang Jung-eun's rewritten author said, "For nearly 13 years, / the violence of the world has flowed to the more explicit side / the power to conceal it more skillfully," we know. Just as the Omusa Temple where Eungyo was coming and going has disappeared for almost 13 years, the Hamseok roof of Nopo, where Eungyo and Mujae were sharing cold noodles, and the shadow of the sound of rain beating the Hamseok roof may rise someday. The first book published in 2010 was published in 2022 and still talks to the shadow, asking if it is okay to let it disappear like that. Don't follow me. Shall we sing?
