Book Cafe: The Martyred Re-Released

In marking the sixtieth anniversary of the Korean War, The Korea Society salutes the late Richard Kim, as Penguin Classics re-releases his National Book Award-nominated The Martyred. Kim's first novel is a critically acclaimed bestseller about the Korean War, and was later made into a play, opera, and film.

Susan Choi (A Person of Interest, American Woman) authored the introduction for the new release and speaks to the importance of Kim’s work and its relevance to better understanding between the peoples of Korea and the United States.
