    For such a short piece of work, this managed to convey so much. Its a story of inequality, custom and society in South Korea. A story about women and how they're still oppressed within the stifling confines of a society that still isn't ready to let go of gender role traditio...

    Appreciated this novel?s thorough portrayal of the entrenched sexism in South Korean society. Cho Nam-Joo shows how patriarchy pervades every facet of South Korean life: the ways parents and teachers devalue girls and idolize boys, how employers discriminate against women both in the...

    Different country, same old sexist bullshit. A tale painfully familiar, just set in a foreign land. This is a short, odd South Korean novel about gender politics. It's a strange mix of fictional life story of one woman moving through the men-dominated and men-focused world, an...

    The world had changed a great deal, but the little rules, contracts, and customs had not, which meant the world hadn?t actually changed at all. 4 1/2 stars. There is some seriously weird and awesome art coming out of South Korea these days. From the weirder stuff (The Vegetarian...

    Kim Jiyoung is a girl born to a mother whose in-laws wanted a boy. Kim Jiyoung is a sister made to share a room while her brother gets one of his own. Kim Jiyoung is a female preyed upon by male teachers at school. Kim Jiyoung is a daughter whose father blames her when she is har...

    My thanks to Simon and Schuster UK and NetGalley for a review copy of this one. Kim Ji-Young, Born 1982 is a 2016 Korean novel, now translated into English (besides other languages). This hard-hitting novel has sold over a million copies, and was also adapted into a film that releas...

    I liked what this book was portraying i.e. gender discrimination, how women are treated in patriarchal a society, but the main character failed miserably to invoke any emotions in me. I was unable to connect with her throughout the book. This is not the first time that I have read some...

    SO FREAKIN GOOD. applause only for this incredible account of what it means to be a woman living in South Korea. Informative, funny, thoughtful, and ultimately packing a punch, this book is definitely a new favourite ...

    If you are a woman living in Korea, I recommend reading this book in your room alone with tissues because I am positive at least once you will show tears with sympathy. Due to unconscious sexual discrimination, women bear their own wounds in their memories. Although in Korean history, ...

    "While offenders were in fear of losing a small part of their privilege,the victims were running the risk of losing everything." An amazing, gripping novel on what it feels to be a woman in this world where you're forced to put up with misogyny and settling for less...

    5/5stars This was WONDERFUL. Such an amazing exploration and discussion of the misogyny that occurs in patriarchal societies from the moment a girl is conceived until she?s an adult. This book really managed to hit the majority of problems within the topic, and although we specifi...

    Through the eyes of her therapist, we follow the life of Kim Jiyoung as she experiences everyday sexism all from birth, youth and into her adulthood where she becomes a stay-at-home mother, and begins to unravel under pressure. Kim Jiyoung first came to my attention last year when a...

    The team leader said the report was good. It was good but it read like an article. The blurb on the front of the inside front cover of the book says Riveting, original and uncompromising, this is the most important book to have emerged from South Korea since Han Kang's &quo...

    I don?t have all that much to say about this book. I find its impact more interesting than the book itself: this is one of the most successful Korean books of the last decade and reading it became a political statement. The book itself is an unflinching depiction of everyday sexism, ...

    This novella hit a nerve in South Korea and became one of the biggest-selling books of the new century. In it, Cho Nam-Joo tells the story of a Korean everywoman from her birth in 1982 until 2016, the year the book was published in its original Korean. Kim Ji-young experiences systemic...

    1000* Shocking portrait of what it means to be a girl, woman in Korean society. I was raging, gasping and almost cried of anger. Some facts from the book: * This was the time when the government had implemented birth control policies called ?family planning? to keep population...

    One of my Top Ten Books of 2020! I?ve been saving this one for a time when I could handle the impending rage-read. I don?t think anyone is ever really going to be ?ready? for this kind of patriarchal bitchslap, though, so I?m just gonna wade into it. I?d also ...

    Outraged by a random murder of a woman by a man in Gangnam who said he committed the crime because "he had been ignored by women a lot and couldn't bear it anymore so committed the crime", Cho Nam-ju composed the novel Kim Jiyoung 1982 that sheds light on the deep rooted...

    What it feels like for a girl, Korea (and modern world) style. Kim Jiyoung is not necessarily a separate, fleshed out character but an every woman, making this book even more poignant, being almost a documentary of life under patriarchy The job did not pay well or make a big splash i...

    Main character of this book is one year younger than me. And I am born and raise in Korea, that means a lot of her experience is very similar with my own. When I was young, I was young and naive like every other single human being so I didn?t even realize how many things are unfair ...

    I am glad this has become an international bestseller. I suppose for many females who live in South Korea, what is in these pages is nothing much new to them. What I liked about the slim novel (163 pages) was that the husband was not portrayed in a negative light per se. He was mor...

    Just before reading this book, I was confused if it's a fiction or a non-fiction. But I did not even check because I am glad it turned out to be both! The story is fictionalized but there are facts mentioned in between with references when it comes to Korea's history of se...

    Eye-catching book with a beautiful cover brought me to know more. Yup, the title is Kim Ji Young Born in 1982. From the title, I could say that it was about biography, but not. It was about how women in South Korea face Discrimination and pressure during their lives. I was so amazed. M...
