Chinatown (Bilingual)


Korea was an arduous and painstaking place to live in after the nation’s civil war. Incheon, one of the war’s most famous backdrops, provides the setting for Chinatown (Bilingual), the story of life in one of the ubiquitous shantytown areas that dotted the Korean landscape at the time, and is a painfully real account of what many suffered through. It is also a grim tale of how Koreans, American soldiers and Chinese vendors failed to understand each other on any meaningful level. Part of the Modern Korean Short Stories Series.
