My favorite part of the story is actually a character--the imugi dragon Iseul. He's a small, beautiful dragon with a big heart and a strength of character that defies his size. I wish I was a mudang (a person capable of bonding with imugi) so I could bond with my own imugi!
I also liked Yong, the semi-antagonist of the story, though at times I did feel he was being overly dramatic (however, that worked in the story, which had a very fairytale-like feel to its writing.) I've often pondered what immortality is like, and how lonely it would be.
Though I knew how the story would end, it still made me smile. I love fairy tales for the ever-present gleam of hope they bring to the world, and this story accomplished that with ease.
Readers who enjoy Asian folk tales, dragons, and romance will find Chung Jo and the Sea Dragon a light and entertaining read with which to spend an afternoon.
I received an ARC of this book and am voluntarily leaving an honest review.
Chung Jo and the Sea Dragon is a sweet fairy tale fantasy set in Korea about a young woman named Chung Jo. It is written in third-person, alternating being several different point-of-view characters. The changes in point-of-view are separated by (***) and new chapters making the switch smooth and confusion free.
The main character of this book is Chung Jo a young woman whose family has lost their fortune due to illness. With the loss of her father's eyesight to the very same fever that took her mother, Chung Jo finds herself trying to care for her father by finding work in a noble house close to home. This task is harder than it should be because Chung Jo herself is the daughter of a nobleman and the other households are not keen on employing her, she fears she will need to seek employment in the next village taking her away from her father's side. A series of happy circumstances leads Chung Jo to work at Joo Won's household as a seamstress, where, in true fairy tale fashion, the two find themselves falling in love.
As the main character, Chung Jo is kind, brave, loyal and willing to sacrifice her own happiness for others. As Chung Jo's love interest, Joo Won is endearing and easy to root for in his quest to win Chung Jo's heart and ultimately her freedom.
This story is a true fairy tale. It is filled with magic, dragons, the types of tests found only in fairy tales, and true love. I really enjoyed reading Chung Jo and the Sea Dragon, and believe it would make an amazing animated movie!
Recommended to anyone who enjoys young adult fantasy stories, female main characters who are loyal and kind, and fairy tales with sweet romance and happy endings.
