I liked this book, read it within one week, but the way the author named all his characters in the book is so different from my understand of Korean names from my Korean friends, so it is a bit confusing for the names, only the main character Hun and the girl I remember.

The title, I think tries to say something about being brothers but killing each other. But I thought that's what we Asians like to do. Haha.

The story is not so attracting. In the beginning it was interesting to read a different way of portraying scenes, landscapes, beautiful but cold, not even like Japanese fictions. But in the middle, it gets a bit trivia, then the ending is not catchy.

I prefer to read some poems from young chi ha, but could not find them, it should be a good warm up.
