April Snow (4월의 눈)

Translation: Jamie Chang


K-Fiction Series features bilingual (Korean-English) editions of texts by the most interesting contemporary authors from South Korea. The editors emphasize that the selection of the best stories is crucial for them – but everything in these books is enjoyable: careful editing, aesthetics or an interesting study in the form of a commentary/essay offered after the main text.

In April Snow, Sohn Won-pyung focuses on relationships and community of experiences independent of latitude. The eponymous April snow is a freak of nature, something unusual, a state beyond the everyday routine.

Marie, a tourist from Finland, unexpectedly arrives at to visit a Korean couple who decided to get a divorce. This unexpected visit doesn’t seem to suit the couple. However, it soon turns out that the presence of someone from the outside relieves the tension and gives (seemingly) space for understanding. Unfortunately, grief and bad emotions over time begin to emerge like dirty streets from under melting snow. The state of suspension – symbolized by fluffy white snow – disappears, leaving behind feelings that do not need to be explained to anyone.

I went outside and walked along the quiet streets. The fat snowflakes made it hard to see ahead. Snow fell in every uncovered nook and turned familiar things into different shapes, making everything seem special.
