Review |
Bestselling Korean novel about a young gay man’s search for love has a soap-operatic tone

  • The narrator of Sang Young Park’s Love in the City is a gay man in Seoul unhappy with his life of casual affairs and seeking a serious relationship
  • In that he succeeds, only to be disappointed – an ending that could have been a catalyst for reflection but isn’t, exemplifying the novel’s superficiality
