Overview

Lee Kkochnim’s new release after I Will Cross Time for You. A story about shattered truth and trust!

Book Intro

Author Lee Kkochnim, known for her warm novels that give comfort to lonely and anxious teenagers, has come back with a book that powerfully grips readers with an unpredictable turn of events. Who I Want to Kill takes a rather unusual subject, a high school girl’s death, to talk about matters of truth and trust.  The world it vividly describes—where people see what they want to see, hear what they want to hear, and believe what they want to believe—is surprisingly barbaric. While her previous works were a warm consolation to teenagers, this book is a cold warning against a world in which truth is recklessly edited and consumed, from someone who always stands by teenagers. 

The main characters of the novel are Juyeon and Seoeun, who have been best friends since middle school. On the day they got in a big fight, Seoeun is found dead behind the school, and Juyeon is arrested as the prime suspect. But the problem is, Juyeon can’t remember a thing about that day. 

Reported by one journalist, this incident stirs up the public, and broadcasters competitively run special shows on it, interviewing people who knew the schoolgirls, and printing sensational headlines. As time goes by, people’s testimony implicates Juyeon as the murderer. 

Did she really kill Seoeun? The novel presents a unique narrative format in which 17 people testify about the two girls, and these stories come together and intertwine with each other. Depending on who the interviewee is, the story keeps changing—what the girls were like, and what their relationship was. The author satisfies readers’ curiosity, but at the last minute, she cleverly avoids giving up the most-critical information. The twist after twist makes the book completely unpredictable, and the tension and the thrill will draw readers so powerfully that they won’t be able to put the book down until the last page.
