Since winning the Munye Chungang’s Newcomer’s Award for her writing debut in 2004, Cho Haejin has solidified her reputation as one of South Korea’s major writers with four novels and three collections of short stories. Her works have been shortlisted for most of the major literary awards in Korea and won several, including the 2016 Yi Hyo-seok Literary Prize and the 2013 Shin Dong-yup Prize for Literature for the novel I Met Loh Kiwan. Described as a writer of compassion and tenderness, her works highlight people pushed to the margins of society, people viewed as “others” (t’aja) by those, both within Korea and beyond, who inhabit society’s presumed mainstream.
