Korean Literature Now is a beautiful reincarnation of _list: Books from Korea. Frankly, I was a bit apprehensive of the announced change, for I was a great admirer of the _list. However, it took me no time to feel comfortable with the re-imagined appearance and contents of the magazine. It certainly lives up to international standards in every aspect. Congratulations!

LTI Korea has been out there in the world of international publishing and reading for almost a decade. Korean Literature Now gives us the news about Korean writers and their works, this generation, the now gen, as well as the longer-established yet no less notable Korean authors whose works inspire and challenge us. In the magazine's pages, across a range of languages and cultures, translators, publishers, agents, and international gatherings, we follow Korean literature out into the world now.
