Overview

This book presents the sentences which form neat and rhythmical layers like a poem, and the story of the characters who are hurt yet manage to keep their love alive will move the hearts of readers.

Book Intro

The place where a gentle breeze and a destructive typhoon coexist is the new literary realm established by Hwang Jengeun. I’ll Go On was serially published in the Changjak- gwa-Bipyeong magazine from autumn of 2012 to the summer of 2013 under the title “SoraNanaNaki.” For about a year after publishing the last episode in the magazine, Hwang devoted herself to rewrite the story, which added more richness and allowed readers to even feel the breath of the main characters Sora, Nana, and Naki through sophisticated descriptions on their emotions.

Each chapter is narrated by Sora, Nana, or Naki, and the story structure is sequentially organized. I’ll Go On illustrates the different feelings of the three characters, who are in the same place at the same time in a way that allows readers to notice the difference in emotional temperatures between them. An interesting reading experience is created through the use of fictional devices in this novel to reveal the innermost feelings of Sora and Nana as well as the differences in their memories. Readers will admire the author’s exceptional ability to maintain suspense while also portraying every gesture of the characters and their emotion-packed words. The book also showcases how Hwang has outdone herself in her latest work. Literary critic Shin Hyeongcheol noted that “books written by Hwang are now scary even to me” in the commentary for the Young Writer Award. Shin would not be the only one who feels admiration and awe for Hwang’s stories, however. It is not difficult to hear that many people even in the literary circle are looking forward to her next story. Where do her limits lie? Where will her succinct and beautiful sentences lead us?
