Overview

Book Intro

How are we to survive in a world that works too much and runs too fast? As a provocative anwer to this question, Hankyoreh republished Park Mingyu's 2003 Hankyoreh Literary Award Winner, The Last Fan Club of the Sammi Superstars. This work has used exuberant imagination and a unique voice unseen in most fiction to make known the birth of an exciting new writer and received the accolades of critics and a large readership. His depiction of those isolated from society (which is all of us) and his criticisms towards modern society is still, if not even more, relevant today sixteen years later.
