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.
Happy Together is seemingly a story of three friends: Minhyung, Haejoo and the narrator met in a university film club and were almost inseparable for a while, but over time their relationship changed completely. Minhyung and Haejoo started dating and then got married and the narrator lost contact with them. The story begins when Haejoo calls her friend and informs her that she wants to have an abortion and divorce Minhyung.
The relationship between Haejoo and the narrator is a mixture of female solidarity and various conflicts: between friendship and loneliness, between the desire to help and jealousy, between the perception and place in the world of cis and trans women. Happy Together is an unconventional story that will give you some things to think about.
