Born 1982, Kim Jiyoung

A Korean woman's life story of horror, fatigue, embarrassment, surprise, confusion, frustration!

A thirty-four-year-old Kim Jiyoung, who has a daughter and lives in the suburbs, has started acting strangely. She took the persona of other people - her mother and the ex-girlfriend of her husband  - as though she has completely lost her own voice and identity. Her frightened husband arranged the counseling for her, and she visits the doctor and tells about her life....

The novel is a kind of report format in which the doctor who listened to Kim Jiyoung's story reconstructed her life. In the report, Kim Jiyoung's memories consist of episodes selected on the basis of the gender of 'female'.
