Chosun Ilbo: Prize-Winning Norwegian Writer Visits Native Korea


A Korean woman who was adopted by a Norwegian couple when she was 7 months old has returned to her home country after winning Norway’s most prestigious literary award. Synne Sun Loes (31), who won the Brage Award in 2002, met reporters at the residence of the Norwegian ambassador on Monday to mark the publication of her award-winning book “A spise blomster till frokost” in Korean. Her Korean name is Ji-seon. "I am proud and thankful that my book is published here in Korea,” she said. "I am quite nervous seeing that so many people are interested in my book.”
