So painful because I know how she felt
When I was reading her book, I had to put the book several times. Sometimes I found myself with tear in my eyes. Because it was so painful to me in her situation. I went to back to my home after seven years living in the States. It was the place where I don't have to ask lots of question for direction and I know the name of buildings without question. same ask Kyo-ko did. I decided escape from Seoul when I was seventeen and I am comfortably living here. Taking a trip to seoul was one trip I tried avoid hard until the time. Being there brought lots of good memories and bad memories, specially my abusive father. There was people who love me a lot and concern about my feeling and they made me feel I returned home. There are lots of similarity between Japanese and korean culture. I felt I was no longer one of them. Because how i dress up and how I respond to others. I was not dressed up as my age and was just wearing my jeans and T-shirt like what I do here all the times. I did not care how people will see me like other Koreas do. When my plane was reaching to San Francisco, I felt I am finally returning to the place where I will live last of my life comfortably. I knew Seoul will be just my hometown where I grew up and I will just be able to visit there for time being only. UNderstanding her too much was very painful but I think there are more than one person who also understand her.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
