Han Kang, an award-winning writer, spoke at the 9th International Congress of Writers Writing in Korean. She discussed her historical novels, “Human Acts” and “I Do Not Bid Farewell,” which focus on tragic events in Korean history. Han said that examining the history of violence is a way to question human nature and that she had to confront her indirect experience with tragedy before she could move forward. She also talked about how poetry is present in both her novels and short stories. The event also featured speeches from other writers and is continuing for four days with literary discussions in Gwangju.
