From the AAWA:
"We celebrated the new authoritative translation from Penguin Classics of The Story of Hong Gildong--arguably the single-most important book of classic Korean fiction. Following the adventures of the Robin Hood-like Hong Gildong, this social justice fairy tale has been adapted into feature films, television shows, cartoons, and even a video game. Translator Minsoo Kang will deliver a talk about his new translation, and we’ll also present short reflections on Hong Gildong by novelists Min Jin Lee and Marie Myung-Ok Lee.
