About the Novel 

  “Goodbye, Yonder” (굿바이, 욘더 in Korean) is a novel written by Kim JangHwan (김장환).

“We invite you to “Yonder,” the last place to meet your loved one.

Kim JangHwan’s feature novel won the 4th Korea New Wave Literature Award. This work, which has been praised by the judges as the most high-tech and warm future literature can portray, tells us that at any moment in the future that we can imagine, at any time when civilization and human evolution produce remarkable results, the future of humans lies in restoring emotions rather than expanding technology.

The novel is set in Seoul 30 years from now. It is a ubiquitous world where reality and cyberspace are mixed together and mankind dreams of a new evolution in harmony with machines. The protagonist, who sent his wife away with cancer, meets his wife’s memory and avatar stored in cyberspace one day and decides to abandon his body to be with her and enter “Yonder,” the last space where he can be with his wife…” – Ridi Books
