Can anyone recommend any Korean Authors, preferably those whose original books were published in Korean and have since been translated into English? I am interested in more or less any fiction, although I do tend to favor stories that have supernatural undercurrents or a touch of fantasy. I would like to begin reading as a means to better understand Korean Culture via stories that Koreans tell. I am of course learning about K-Life in other ways, but since I am such an avid reader I think that this would be really helpful and can give me things to ask my K-friends about when we are together. While Korean-American authors might be okay if they have a strong connection or focus on Korea, my preference is to read books written by people who were born and raised there.
