    The recent popularity of Squid Game put Korean dramas (also known as K-dramas) in the spotlight for many international audiences, following on from the Hallyu or ‘Korean wave’, which began in the 1990s. Contemporary literature from South Korea, however, is also more accessible than ever before, with new authors in translation gaining fame amongst the likes of giants such as Han Kang. This 8-week online literature course looks at several of the most acclaimed translated Korean novels over the last few years and considers their common themes, such as LGBTQIA issues, gender roles and beauty standards, and the use of surrealist elements.
