The Munich Readery


Winner of the Hankyoreh Literature Award, Seo Su-jin’s debut novel follows four Korean
language lecturers at Seoul’s prestigious H University over the course of an academic year.

Readers spend one season with each of the four protagonists, getting a close glimpse into the
challenges and joys of sharing a new language and culture with students from abroad.

Korean Teachers reveals the sexism, racism, and classism behind the Korean Wave while
exploring the Korean language education scene. The English translation of Korean Teachers
was one of the most celebrated Korean translations of 2022.

Born and raised in Seoul, Seo Su-jin has also published the novels Yujin and
Dave and Oleander. Her short story collection, Gold Rush, won the 13th Munhakdongne
Young Writer’s Award. She lives and teaches in Sydney, Australia and is currently a guest of
the City of Munich’s artist-in-residence program.
