The lecture was centered on Lee’s novel ‘So Far, and Yet So Near’ (ASIA, 2014). Lee described the origins and inspiration for the novel and the worldview he projected into the book, and discussed his fascination with people and stories. The lecture was followed by a Q & A session with the audience, which showcased the high levels of interest Hong Kong readers had for Korean literature as a whole.
