Ji-young Kim: Born in 1982 by Cho Namjoo

조남주 장편소설 82년생 김지영 한글판

Ji-young Kim was born on April 1, 1982. She is the middle child of a family consisting of father, mother, older sister, and younger brother. She attends an all-girl middle school and high school and, during those years, encounters a few sexist situations that make her uncomfortable and angry. Alas, she forgets those moments over the years. Her sister pursues a degree in Education because her parents tell her that it is a good career path for a woman. Ji-young, on the other hand, studies at the College of Humanities, and works at a public relations agency upon graduation. Every morning, she makes cups of coffee, each made according to each employee’s preferences, and sets them on their respective desks. She becomes pregnant, and after much contemplation, quits her job. Soon, she finds herself disagreeing with her mother and husband on almost every topic. The novel’s format is presented in the form of her doctor’s reports on her mental stability. It follows Kim’s thought process when observing other women. “How do pregnant women with ballooned bellies continue to ride the subway to get to work and why do they choose to carry out their pregnancies?” and “People tell me I am an irresponsible and harebrained parent,” are just a few of Kim’s recorded statements. Cho, who is originally a broadcast writer, deliberately portrays Kim Ji-young and her life as a universal figure and scenario, respectively, by citing a rich collection of articles, articles, and social networks. The novel realistically shows the horror, embarrassment, surprise, confusion, and frustration of those who live as women in a Korean society.
