About Magazine 잡지 소개
The 2023 Spring issue of Diaspora Webzine nŏmŏ explores the current state of Korean diaspora literature. What trends are defining the course of Korean diaspora literature today? The Special Feature section offers readers a look into the current state of Korean diaspora literature through four texts which emerged from the 2022 Korean Diaspora Literature and Anthropogeography academic conference, jointly hosted by LTI Korea and the International Association for Literature of Korean Residents Abroad back in July 2022. Moving on to the Photostory section, readers will be transported to the city of Kyzylorda in Kazakhstan, and in the Writers Crossing Boundaries section, they will be given the chance to learn about Kim Hakcheol (who also went by the name Omura Matsuo), a fiction writer and activist who lived in China during the Japanese colonial era and fought for Korea’s independence. Next is the nŏmŏ’s New Works section, which includes four short stories, namely “Viewing” by Ji Hyuck Moon, “Why We Can’t Stay There” by Geum Hee, “Stork’s Nest” by Mikhail Park, and “Tigro” by Lee Jun-ho, as well as twelve poems by six different poets—Mah Chonggi, Choi Ji-in, Cheong Jang, Lee Myeung-ae, Ko Hyeon-hye, and Seok-hwa. To top it off, the section also contains four essays, namely “The History of Separation” by Ban Suyeon, “Sunflower” by An Gyeong-ja, “Names Which No Longer Sound Unfamiliar” by Kim Rihyang, and “Dear Sault Ste. Marie Canal” by Moon Ingwi. In nŏmŏ’s Perspectives, which aims to shed light on the life and spirit of diaspora literature, the Deep Reading the Diaspora section offers a critical and in-depth look at works by Anatoli Kim, Richard E. Kim, and Mahmoud Darwish, while the Diaspora Scenes section introduces readers to the Sydney Korean Writers Association. Finally, the K-Culture Reviews section features a reflection by poet, literary critic, and content planner Huh Hyejung entitled “The K-drama Wave in the Cultural Cold War Era.” To conclude, here is a line taken from the latest issue of nŏmŏ: " The rustling melody of the reeds soothes my wandering soul. "        - From “Coastal Diaspora,” written by Mah Chonggi. * As of present, Diaspora Webzine nŏmŏ is only available in Korean.
