A best seller in its original Korean, “Please Look After Mom” was received critically by English audiences. Chronicling a family’s reaction after the disappearance of their mother and wife from a subway station in Seoul, it powerfully describes emotions and relationships through vivid scenes from their lives.

The novel is written in four voices — a daughter, a son, a husband, and finally that of the missing woman herself, and each brings a difference perspective and realized appreciation for Park So-Nyo. The relationship between daughter and mother is explored through the eyes of Chi-hon, the youngest daughter, an author who travels the world and often forgets to call home to assuage her mother’s fear of planes. She remembers how she became a guest in her family’s home, how her mother became agitated when she came to visit unannounced, as well as her realization of her mother’s chronic illness and pain. The story continues in the perspective of Hyong-chol, the beloved oldest son of the family, who remembers his mother’s sacrifice, how she prepared special foods for them, how she hoped and worked for him to pursue his dream of becoming a prosecutor.

Although this is a translation, the writing style is elegant, and each voice comes through clearly and distinctly. There are, however, no neat endings or happily-ever-afters. Still, if you are willing to give it a shot, this is a story that will resonate and perhaps even haunt you long after you have finished it. ( )

Quand une absence révèle une présence discrète de tous les instants... très fin, profond, subtil ( )
  Nikoz | Aug 6, 2020 |
A YA book and also a winner of the prestigious Printz honor, this is a heart wrenching, well written chronicle of a young woman who fell in love and through a series of unforgivable transgressions and insensitive actions of her boyfriend, she was deeply hurt.

Titled an intellectual "artsy" person, her friend at first found her fascinating, but all to soon he and his immature friends were more important to the girl who loved him.

A national bestseller, and a very good story of a women hurt so badly, it will scar her for all future relationships, but also will help her to be more careful of whom she loves. ( )

In an odd way this brilliant book reminds me of Natsume Sōseki's 夏目漱石 (1867–1916) novel Kokoro こころ (1914). Natsume laments how much the Japanese lost in their mad rush to modernize during the Meiji period (1868–1912). Ms. Shin asks the same questions of Koreans a century later.

Penitence is, after all, this book’s whole point. Characters’ eyes begin watering, pooling with tears, brimming over, etc., as each one has the chance to realize that Mom was a treasure. (Bonus sobbing cue: Nobody knew that Mom was secretly working at an orphanage in her spare time.) Mom’s children start to see how wrong it was to abandon ancestral traditions for their busy, newfangled, heartless, stressed-out city lives.

An enormous publishing success in South Korea, this simple portrait of a family shocked into acknowledging the strength and heroic self-sacrifice of the woman at its center is both universal and socially specific.

Since you heard about Mom's disappearance, you haven't been able to focus on a single thought, besieged by long-forgotten memories unexpectedly popping up. And the regret that always trailed each memory.
”Did you like being in the kitchen? Did you like to cook?” Mom's eyes held yours for a moment. “I don't like or dislike the kitchen. I cooked because I had to. I had to stay in the kitchen so you could all eat and go to school. How could you only do what you like? There are things you have to do whether you like it or not.” Mom's expression asked, What kind of question is that? And then she murmured, “If you only do what you like, who's going to do what you don't like?”
The thing your wife said to you most frequently, ever since you met her when you were twenty, was to walk more slowly. How could you have not gone slower, when your wife asked you to slow down your entire lives? You'd stopped and waited for her, but you'd never walked next to her, conversing with her, as she wanted – not even once. Since your wife has gone missing, your heart feels as if it will explode every time you think about your fast gait.
If I can't live like Mom, how could she have wanted to live like that? Why did this thought never occur to me when she was with us? Even though I'm her daughter, I had no idea, so how alone must she have felt with other people? How unfair is it that all she did was sacrifice everything for us, and she wasn't understood by anyone?
One woman. That woman disappeared, bit by bit, having forgotten the joy of being born and her childhood and dreams, marrying before her first period and having five children and raising them. The woman who, at least when it came to her children, wasn't surprised or thrown off by anything. The woman whose life was marred with sacrifice until the day she went missing.
