I’m Waiting For You

Two worlds, four stories, infinite possibilities. In ‘I’m Waiting for You’ and ‘On My Way’ (translated by Sophie Bowman), an engaged couple coordinate their separate missions to distant corners of the galaxy to ensure – through relativity – they can arrive back on Earth simultaneously to make it down the aisle. But small incidents wreak havoc on space and time, driving their wedding date further away. As centuries on Earth pass and the land and climate change, one thing is constant: the desire of the lovers to be together. In two separate yet linked stories, Kim Bo-young cleverly demonstrates the idea love that is timeless and hope springs eternal, despite seemingly insurmountable challenges and the deepest despair. What if that which is considered criminal is instead the natural order – and those who condemn it corrupt? Exploring the dichotomy between the philosophical and the corporeal, Kim ponders the fate of free-will, as she considers the most basic of questions: who am I?
