‘Wait for me’ is written by ‘An na’ who is a Korean but grew up in America. This novel is quite short and easy to understand. However I found it easier to read because there are some Korean words included, so I think people who are unfamiliar with Korean words would have hardship reading it. But also would be a good opportunity to get familiar with Korean culture since the words contains culture and traditions of Korea.
I felt familiar with the plot and the atmosphere of this whole novel because ‘Wait for me’ involves most of the stereotypical Korean. For an instance, ‘Mum’ in this novel was a significant character and that was because I was able to notice that ‘mum’ tends to be credential who thinks the academic ability is most important than anything else. Plus, the main character in the novel ‘Mina’ also displayed the Korean typical student who wants to get rid of her stressful life but do something she really enjoys.
I have a profound impression towards ‘Mina’ on how she overcome her fake life and become to be honest to herself and seek for the life that she would enjoy throughout the whole novel. She tries to find what she truly wants in her life and what she wants to do. Plus, this made me to consider about myself as well such as what I want to be and what I am trying to do and try to be honest on myself.
