I'll give it to you because I think it suits you. Period. It was simple and clear.

Cho Num Joo



The heroine who left the job because of childbirth spends dissatisfying days wondering why not her husband but she is forced to choose work or child raising and to stop connection with society once. One day, a former colleague gives her a lipgloss. But the former co-worker didn't say like, "Because a mother is a woman too." That pleased her most. From the Korean writer's novel, "Kim Ji Young Born 1982" translated by Mariko Saito.
