Biography

I specialize in modern Korean literature and culture. My interests include imperialism and colonialism in East Asia (former Japanese Empire); colonialism and race; gender and sexuality; popular literature (middlebrow and lowbrow literature); romance fiction and detective fiction; transwar Korean cinema. My forthcoming monograph, Imperial Romance: Fictions of Colonial Intimacy in Korea, 1905–1945 examines discourses of romance and marriage between Koreans and Japanese by critically analyzing print culture, including literary texts, popular media, and film from the colonial era in Korea. My current research explores the production of popular fiction and romance in 20th Century Korea supported by HKU (Seed Fund for Basic Research) and Early Career Scheme of the Research Grants Council (RGC) of Hong Kong, SAR. Meanwhile, I have co-edited a book on the transwar culture of Korea and Taiwan. East Asian Transwar Popular Culture: Literature and Film from Taiwan and Korea (Palgrave Macmillan, 2019) explores the shared experience of colonialism and post-colonialism of Korea and Taiwan through analysis of literature and film. This project was supported by Louis Cha Fund and China-West Strategic Research Theme Fund of HKU.
