Kim Jiyoung Born 1982

kim jiyoung born 1982 book review

I originally saw Kim Jiyoung Born 1982 on the recommendation list of Kim Namjoon or RM of BTS and I instantly got drawn in due to its synopsis and other book reviews I’ve seen online. As someone who’s just a beginner when it comes to feminist books, I just have to pick this one up. Spoiler alert: it did not disappoint.

This book follows the life of Kim Jiyoung wherein her life acts as a representation of the misogyny that every Korean woman faced at different stages of their lives.

I. LOVED. THIS. BOOK. FAVE READ OF 2021. TOP OF THE LIST.

Though this centers on Korean women, everyone would still resonate with it because there’s a Kim Jiyoung in all of us.

I also love that every obstacle that the author points to, references statistics to prove that it is real. That what happens in the book also happens in real life. It is so well done!! *chefs kiss*

Side note, I heard that this book has a great impact that some of the South Korea laws have been amended because of it. The power Kim Jiyoung Born 1982 holds! We love to see it!

If you’re looking for something to start your 2022 reading list, pick this one up! 🤍
