About the Author
I was born in Seoul, Korea in 1971. As the youngest of the family, with an older sister and two older brothers, I was surrounded by comfort, support, and most of all, love.
As a child, I loved spending time in my own world of imagination, where I had the ability to create my friends, experiences, and “realities.” These were always preferable to the true reality that surrounded me.
Growing up in the 1970s and 1980s, Korea was still recovering from its long history of military dictatorship after the Korean war and still experiencing the turmoil of political upheaval. It was simply too chaotic and harsh for a free-spirited young mind.
