I have a wide range of hobbies (traveling, taking public transportations in everywhere I visit, cooking, listening to music and going to music performances, ), and I particularly enjoy reading books. The book that I recently read is a novel written by a young Korean woman, titled Kim Ji-young, Born 1982 (Korean: 82년생 김지영). If you are interested in a complicated intersection among culture, family, and really strict gender role expectations, you’ll enjoy it a lot! Highly recommended!
