20 Singaporean TV shows that will make you smile wistfully (or cringe, whatever)
1. Growing Up (1996-2001): Domestic drama in the ’60s! Andrew Seow in a white undershirt! Irin Gan’s beehive hair!
2. Phua Chu Kang Pte Ltd (1997-2007): It’s hard to suppress a shudder thinking about PCK’s yellow boots, curly hair and giant mole. And remember when the government tried to get the show to cut down on the Singlish?
3. The Noose (2007-present): This no-holds-barred Singapore news satire might just be our favorite. Michelle Chong and Chua Enlai routinely kill it.
4. VR Man (1998): James Lye dons spandex and a mask in this hilariously awful attempt at sci-fi. A cult classic for a reason.
5. Crimewatch (1986-present): One of the longest-running TV shows in Singapore history, this proto-reality TV show/PSA featured unintentionally funny amateur reenactments of local true crime cases.
6. The Unbeatables (1993): As star-crossed lovers from rival families, Zoe Tay and Li Nanxing made casinos impossibly glamorous. It seems unlikely that we’ll ever see another gambling lifestyle-promoting TV show come out of Singapore.
7. The Pyramid Game (1997): Every geeky ’90s kid tuned in to this game show with terrible prizes (quite literally peanuts as well as McDonald’s meals).
8. Spin (2004): MediaCorp’s first teen drama was surprisingly good. There were actually relatable storylines and non-tokenistic female characters (more than we can say about a good handful of today’s TV shows).
9. Masters of the Sea (1994): This so-bad-it’s-good TV soap was best known for Margaret Chan’s catchphrase, “crush you like a cockroach”.
10. Under One Roof (1995-2003): Moses Lim led the iconic family comedy, one of Singapore’s most successful by international standards. It’s been aired in countries like Australia, Taiwan, France and Canada.
11. Singapore Idol (2004-2009): Heartthrobs Taufik Batisah and Hady Mirza got fans in a dialing frenzy, though we thought Dick Lee (our Simon Cowell) stole the show.
12. The Little Nyonya (2008-2009): Jeanette Aw plays the regressive womanly ideal—beautiful, mute, good in the kitchen—in this Peranakan dynasty epic.
13. Shooting Star (2005): Someone came up with the brilliant idea of putting the Singapore Idol contestants in a teen drama. It broke Channel 5’s 10 million viewer record.
14. Triple Nine (1995-1999): Thanks to stars James Lye, Robin Leong and Wong Li Lin, this homegrown police drama is perhaps best known for its ang moh accents galore.
15. Asia Bagus (1992): We remember this early talent TV show mostly for its awesome, if slightly unhinged, host, Najip Ali.
16. City Beat (1990s): Flamboyant trio Kym Ng, Bryan Wong and Sharon Au traveled round Singapore eating up a storm, exploring neighborhoods and acting ridiculous in between.
17. Right Frequency (1990s): Better known as “Bo Ying Ren”, this retro comedy had amazing characters like the gangly, asexual Xiao La Ba and can’t-keep-it-in-his-pants Yan Dao.
18. Don’t Worry, Be Happy (1996-2002): Looking back, this Chinese comedy was fueled mostly by extremely bad jokes. Yet we couldn’t stop watching it.
19. Moulmein High (2000): Why were our high school teachers not Cynthia Koh?
20. Comedy Night (1990s): Jack Neo cross-dressed his way to fame on this SNL-style Channel 8 comedy staple, better known as “Gao Xiao Xing Dong”. His on-screen character Liang Po Po even turned into a feature film.

Live your best life: Netflix K-drama Mine shows women how to deal with injustice
What could I possibly glean from watching a fictional drama about an uber-rich family? And a K-drama at that. Would I be watching scene after scene of betrayal and anger in the name of power, fame and money?
The Netflix series starring Kim Seo-hyung, Lee Bo-young and Ok Ja-yeon was the top TV show in Singapore in June, according to data streaming site Flix Patrol. It also stayed on Netflix’s own Top 10 in Singapore Today list for several weeks last month.
The show was a hit in South Korea, too, reeling in about 1.8 million views per episode, with the finale on Jun 27 breaking Mine’s previous rating records.
So what is it about the South Korean melodrama that made it such an addictive watch?
First, it was unlike anything I’d expected from a family drama. I saw the resilience of mothers who put up and acted against injustice to raise a child. I saw women overcoming the impossible and coming together to tackle prejudice. Most of all, I saw how contagious being fearless could be.
A few episodes in, I was cheering for the characters while hanging tight to my seat.
The drama follows the lives of three women living inside the mansion of the conglomerate Han family: Two daughters-in-law and a mysterious tutor.
Kim Seo-hyung plays the first daughter-in-law Jung Seo-hyun, who stays rational when it comes to dealing with family matters. Lee Bo-young plays second daughter-in-law Seo Hi-soo, who raises stepson Ha-joon like her own.
Ok Ja-yeon plays Ha-joon’s birth mother Kang Ja-kyung, who upends the lives of the family by disguising as his tutor, with the intent of reclaiming her son.
Watching Mine, it wasn’t the over-the-top luxurious lives of the characters that got me hooked. While all those beautiful outfits from Dior, Hermes, Prada and more were a joy to see, people simply don’t drink water drawn from Antarctic glaciers or need a golf cart to take them around the house.
Rather, it was the strength, resolve and determination of the three female characters in fighting injustice that kept me following each episode. In spite of their wealth, these women were relatable and inspiring.
READ: Life can start after 40: How these women in Singapore can inspire you
Here are five life lessons Singapore women can learn from Mine to help us deal with difficult situations in our lives. Warning: Spoilers ahead.
1. WHEN YOU NEED TO CLIMB OVER A HIGH WALL IN YOUR LIFE
From leaving a toxic relationship to speaking out about harassment, we need someone by our side.
One of the most compelling scenes in Mine was the built-up stress and pain that a pregnant Seo faced while discovering the secrets in the family.
It resulted in her suffering a miscarriage at home. In response, first daughter-in-law Jung rushes to her side, crying silently with her and holding her tightly, instantly changing the tone of their previously-at-odds relationship.
The scene was heart-wrenching yet uplifting, seeing Jung sharing in her sister-in-law’s loss and grief, offering a listening ear and supporting her.
While recovering from the miscarriage, Seo also told Jung that she had made up her mind to leave the mansion and raise her stepson Ha-joon on her own. She was resolute in her decision despite knowing that she needed to “find a way to climb through the high wall surrounding this place”.
“I will help you do that by your side, and tell you how you can do that,” said Jung.
With trauma hits close to home, we need our tribe – the women in our lives – to tide us through the painful moments.
2. WHEN YOU NEED TO IRON OUT CHALLENGING DIFFERENCES
Whether it’s letting go of your own wants for your child’s happiness or drumming up the courage to forgive a wrongdoing, openness and honesty are crucial to mending a broken relationship.
The miscarriage led to Seo and tutor Kang developing a special bond and working through their differences, with the common goal of protecting Ha-joon from his wayward father.
“You don’t have anyone right now. And you don’t want anyone to see you like this. You can’t even tell your mother or visit her. So let me take care of you,” said Kang.
Another relatable example: When Jung asks the young master (not her biological son) what made him happy. “I don’t think I’ve ever asked you what makes you truly happy, and what you want to do with your life. I know it’s late, but what makes you happy?”
What we can learn here: Listening to someone else’s perspective should take priority before you assume what they want.
3. WHEN YOU NEED TO TELL SOMEONE WHAT SHE NEEDS TO HEAR
…but not what she wants to hear.
It takes a special kind of boldness and courage to let someone know that they’re in the wrong – and it’s usually family and close friends that that privilege falls upon.
Seo, usually the “bad cop” in the family, tries her best to help everyone understand the consequences of their actions and to take ownership of their mistakes. In one situation, she suggests that Han Jin-hee, the only daughter of the family, get counselling for her anger issues, which she benefits from.
If you want to find the best version of yourself, those close friends and loved ones who are willing to talk through your blindspots are definitely worth keeping.
4. WHEN YOU WANT TO STAND UP TO BULLIES
We can’t help but wish we could own Seo’s badassery when it comes to confronting a bully.
Instead of telling her stepson to ignore the thoughtless comments made by his classmates about his “actress mum” who isn’t his biological mother, she tackles the problem by confronting the classmate’s parent. “What kind of mum leads the son to the wrong path?” asked Seo.

5. WHEN YOU FEEL LIKE YOU ARE LOSING YOURSELF
It’s easy to lose oneself especially during major life transitions such as marriage or a career change.
Seo had to make the intentional effort to remain true to herself and not lose her identity after her marriage. “People treat me and my accomplishments like they were nothing after marrying him,” said Seo, referring to how she was a reputable actress before getting married.

I’m still watching Channel 8 in 2021 & the shows are still great – Mothership.
I still watch Channel 8 shows.
In fact, when I’m having a bad day, I sometimes feel better after going home and watching Channel 8. (Yes, you are free to judge me.)
My recent favourites include “King of Culinary” (三把刀), “Hawker Academy” (小贩学院), as well as some 9pm dramas like “A Jungle Survivor” (森林生存记) and currently, “Mind Jumper” (触心罪探).
But gone are the times when I would talk to my friends about 9pm Channel 8 serials.
In fact, along the way, it has become kind of uncool to profess love for the newer Channel 8 shows.
A 20-year love affair
It may seem completely unthinkable that a millennial would still be hooked on Channel 8 shows in the age of Netflix, Disney+, and YouTube.
Being confined to local television is a thing of the past — with a click or two, we now have the option to watch dramas from all over the world.
And so, the mystery remains: Given all these choices, why do I still find myself catching certain local programmes at broadcast time? Even if I’m not home to watch them, there is a good chance that I would diligently set aside some time for meWATCH.
Somehow, my love for Channel 8 has persisted from the 1990s all the way into 2021.
But just so we’re clear: I’m not saying that all Channel 8 shows are worth watching (I personally cannot get behind the current 7:30pm “Recipe of Life” (味之道)’s ridiculous and meandering storyline).
All I’m saying is that, and naysayers please hear me out, there is still much to love about Channel 8 shows.
Leisure in a time where on-demand didn’t exist
Perhaps it has something to do with nostalgia.
I have plenty of fond childhood memories associated with the act of watching TV, and more specifically, watching Channel 8.
Pleasant memories include my family and I tuning in to variety shows after dinner. Over plates of cut fruit, we would then sit around the living room, watching the 9pm drama together — an activity that has since become relatively rare these days since personal screens became ubiquitous.
In a world where on-demand TV was still relatively unheard of, how I organised my time as a kid revolved around this programming schedule.
If I hadn’t finished my homework by the time the 6:30pm news happened, it means that I would be due for an earful. And my cue to wash up and go to bed? When the credits for the 9pm drama rolled.
We lived in an era where local TV and radio played a huge part in fostering a shared imagination of our lives in Singapore. How we understood life and leisure was also way simpler back then.
But I’d like to think that my love for Channel 8 shows isn’t rooted in an irrational desire to chase the joys of a rose-tinted past.
The best era is over? I think not.
Ask anybody who used to be remotely invested in Channel 8 shows and they’ll likely tell you that the peak of Channel 8 shows in Singapore seemed to be in the 90s, or maybe early 2000s.
I watched as my peers gradually fell out of love with Channel 8 over the years (“Huh? You’re still watching Channel 8??”/ “Walao, you go home to watch the 9pm show?”).
The best Channel 8 show in their opinion? Probably “Stepping Out” (出路), “The Unbeatables” (双天至尊), “Holland Village” (荷兰村), “Wok of Life” (福满人间) or maybe even “The Little Nyonya (2008)” (小娘惹).
To them, all other dramas from 2010 onwards have no place in their consciousness.
Story arcs continue to be innovative
Nobody will disagree that there are plenty of memorable shows from the 1990s and 2000s. But if we are talking about storylines that compel, I think that riveting story arcs still exist.
There are the perennial police and crime drama favourites (think “C.L.I.F.”, which has a grand total of five seasons, and a lesser-known cold case investigation drama “Truth Seekers” (真探), which I really enjoyed).
Local TV has also continued to innovate with unusual plots. Some that I really liked:
- Aliens living in the Singapore heartlands (“Our Friends From Afar” (知星人) was called “the best thing on Singaporean TV” by this writer in 2017)
- An elaborate con artist plot (“Game Plan” (千方百计) featuring Christopher Lee and Jesseca Liu)
- A heroine and imperial guard time-travelling from ancient China to modern-day Singapore (“A Quest To Heal” (我的女侠罗明依) snagged an impressive amount of nominations for Star Awards 2021)
- An intrepid Vietnamese bride integrating into Singapore life (“My Star Bride” (过江新娘) was a widely popular show in 2021)
But wait, aren’t some of these so-called “novel” story ideas unoriginal? Surely one can imagine con or time travel shows from virtually any culture!
The main difference —and this is why I believe Singaporean TV continues to ensnare — is that it frames the relationship between characters, as well as conflict resolution, in a context that’s distinctly local, making it all the more relatable to Singaporeans.
And this is why it’s not just novel plots that have the ability to draw audiences in. Slice-of-life family dramas (think “118”) also help us to make sense of our life in Singapore as we know it through on-screen portrayals of anxieties and aspirations.
If anything, perhaps a valid criticism I would agree with is that there hasn’t been any recent slice-of-life family dramas that have been quite as memorable.
A question of acting?
Another common retort is that the quality of acting is not like what it used to be.
But let’s not forget that A-list (and B-list actors) exist in every generation. That means that while there are some actors now who aren’t so great, not-so-great actors also existed back in the 1990s and 2000s too.
If we are looking at older artistes like Zoe Tay or Christopher Lee, who are thought to have reached the pinnacle of acting excellence, I think talent renewal is well underway.
Surely artistes like Qi Yuwu (three-time Best Actor winner at Star Awards with breakthroughs in international films), Rui En (two-time Best Actress and All-Time Favourite Artiste at Star Awards) and Felicia Chin (widely considered to be A-lister) must be considered promising?
Others like Xu Bin, Shaun Chen and Rebecca Lim have also held their own in various roles.
And what about the up-and-coming younger talents, involving the likes of Carrie Wong, Ya Hui (although she hasn’t had any recent breakthroughs, from what I recall) or even Chantalle Ng?
Given their relatively young ages, they arguably have a decent runway before they take over from the generation before them.
Arghhhh the ads
The argument that I am most empathetic to is the fact that advertising has increasingly become more prevalent and embedded in Chinese dramas.
If you’ve been following local TV in recent years, you’ll notice that you would first have to sit through an entire 30-second Daikin jingle (“iiiiiiiii… smiiiiiilleeee… seeeerriiiiiiess!”) before you can get started on the 9pm show.
There would likely also be product placements and promotional messaging within the programme. This could range from the benefits of a particular mattress, promoting traditional Chinese medicinal products or even how to curb the spread of dengue. (Sidenote: Perhaps this might be one of the reasons explaining a decline in Channel 8 period dramas in recent years?)
However, this phenomenon that isn’t limited to just local TV. Some overseas productions, such as Thai dramas that I am particularly fond of, also have similar ad placements promoting snacks, drinks or cosmetic products.
If the ads bother you and significantly affect your ability to enjoy the programme, I get it. There can be more elegant ways of subtly integrating client messaging into the programme.
Do these ads interfere with the watching experience? Yes. But how much it affects a viewer then depends on their expectations of what should and should not go into a drama. (My threshold for advertising is likely higher.)
Personally, I have never felt that these ads made me want to stop following a compelling storyline.
Put it this way: There will always be room for improvement. We can always aspire towards more realistic representations, even more sophisticated methods of storytelling, and an overall increase in production value.
However you choose to see it, the fact that I still find myself gravitating to Channel 8 shows could very well say something about the quality of Channel 8 dramas and its ability to connect to audiences.
Or it could mean that, as my friends would say, I need to get a life.
I’m betting on the former.

Tomorrow With You
The romantic show focuses on real-estate CEO Yoo So-Joon who travels through time to change his future. He ends up marrying a photographer, Song Ma-Rin. Due to the nature of her job and her having to move around a lot, her style is rather minimalistic. She focuses more on comfort than anything else. Her style mostly revolves around t-shirts and a nice jacket. Although the way Song Ma-Rin dresses is rather simple, she is able to accessorise to make sure her outfits stand out. Most of her outfits are plain in colour, but with a pop of red or pink, she is able to transform her look.

This K-drama is all about boss women; women who are working at the best web portal companies. They decide to put their careers ahead, but also look good doing it. Each scene is power suits upon power suits. One of the best outfits on the show is the hot pink Theory power suit worn by Cha Hyeon. She is able to express herself while looking like a boss as she walks into the office building.

Find Me in Your Memory
This show puts two opposites together. Lee Jung-Hoon is a news anchor who remembers every single moment he has lived. He forms a deep connection with model and actress Yeo Ha-jin who has lost her memory. The clothing that is worn in this K-drama is more elegant, as it plays to the personalities of each character. One of the best outfits worn by Ga-young is a yellow to orange ombre dress — it’s very elegant, and definitely works for her.

After an incident that occurs at the prestigious school, a law professor and his students fight for justice. The plot of the K-drama is enticing enough but the outfits worn by each character take it to another level. There were multiple all-black outfits, worn by Yang Jong-Hoon, the professor, but the one that is most memorable is the one worn by Kang Sol A. The structured black trench coat with white stitching adds a level of toughness to her demeanour.

It’s Okay Not to be Okay
This Korean Drama is all about the romance between an antisocial children’s book author and an employee in a psychiatric hospital. Although her counterpart spends most of his time in his scrubs, Go Moon Young never misses a beat with her outfits. One of the most memorable looks on the show is when she wore a beige dress with a brown belt around the waist. The length of the dress, the structure, and the way she carried it made it unforgettable for many viewers.

What If…? (11 Aug) Disney+
This animated series explores what would happen if pivotal moments in the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) had drastically different outcomes, as narrated by the Watcher (Jeffrey Wright). Chris Hemsworth (Thor), Tom Hiddleston (Loki), Samuel L. Jackson (Nick Fury), and Josh Brolin (Thanos) voice their respective characters in this series.
Based on the comic series What If, this series uses the MCU as the mainstream timeline and looks at what would have happened if events had played out differently. The comic series looked at intriguing possibilities, like what if the X-Men’s Rogue had the power of Thor instead, or what if Spider-Man had joined the Fantastic Four — so it’ll be exciting to see what alternate realities this series will show us! And given that Loki has already introduced us to the idea of variants, popular alternate versions of characters may very well make their way into the mainstream MCU universe. ..
Stargirl (Season 2) (11 Aug, Wednesdays 9pm), Warner TV (StarHub Ch 515; Singtel Ch 306)
High school teenager Courtney Whitmore (Brec Bassinger) is actually the costumed superheroine Stargirl. Together with her fellow schoolmates (and superheroes), they battle insidious villains from both past and present. The second season sees more allies joining her, even as new villains arise.
Was that a Green Lantern ring we saw in the trailer? It looks like we’ll see an expansion of Stargirl’s Justice Society of America (JSA) this season, especially since not all of the JSA’s artifacts that Courtney took last season were used. I’m more interested in Eclipso though, the bad guy who was revealed at the end of Season 1. He’s usually known to have a corrupting influence, so it could be his machinations which have led to the tension and turmoil we saw in the trailer.
Too Close (20 Aug), BBC First (StarHub Ch 502)
Also known as Under The Skin, Too Close focuses on the relationship between two women — forensic psychiatrist Dr Emma Robinson (Emily Watson), who has been assigned to assess the sanity of alleged murderer Connie Mortenson (Denise Gough). But their sessions become a complex psychological game with confusing and emotional undercurrents. Not all is as it seems in this series.
Too Close looks like it’ll be a character-driven drama (the best kind of drama, really) as the two women seemingly play a dangerous game of cat-and-mouse with each other. It looks like the pair will end up attempting to manipulate each other, but as always, the question will be — who is really manipulating who?
Whispering Corridors 6: The Humming (movie) (20 Aug), iQiyi
The sixth instalment of the Whispering Corridors series returns with Eun Hee (Kim Seo-Hyueng) being appointed Vice Principal at her alma mater. The catch? She has no memory of her high school days at all. As she begins to suffer from visions and hallucinations, she finds another girl has been experiencing the same. And all these have to do with a cursed toilet in the school…
The Whispering Corridors horror movie series always has an all-girls high school as its setting, and this film is no different. It uses the stereotype of the amnesiac girl to create mystery and tension — but we can guess that she probably has a very violent connection to the school’s cursed toilet. Nevertheless, the visuals look pretty horrifying, and you’d best not stream this movie at night if you would like to have a good night’s sleep.

The Witcher: Nightmare Of The Wolf (23 Aug), Netflix
This animated series looks at how Geralt’s mentor, Vesemir, came to be. Theo James voices Vesemir, a swashbuckling young witcher who escaped a life of poverty to slay monsters for coin. But when a strange new monster begins terrorizing a politically-fraught kingdom, Vesemir finds himself on a frightening adventure that forces him to confront the demons of his past.
If you’ve been itching to see the next season of The Witcher (and you’ve finished your replay of all the games), then The Witcher: Nightmare Of The Wolf is here to satiate that itch. The animation looks superb and the battles look like they’re going to be epic. You know what would sweeten the deal? Hearing Toss A Coin To Your Witcher in the series itself.

Review of Crystal Hana Kim’s novel If You Leave Me (USA: Harper Collins, August 7, 2018)
By YZ Chin
In these historic times, when relations between North and South Korea have to all appearances reached a breakthrough, and an official end to the Korean War seems more in sight than ever, reading Crystal Hana Kim’s If You Leave Me is a visceral reminder of what the war actually cost ordinary people who lived through it. While jokes about Nobel peace prizes are tossed about, it would do well to remember that the devastation of war extends far beyond its supposed end.
If You Leave Me is Kim’s first book; I first got to know Kim’s work through a Facebook group for debut authors, to which we both belong. Set in fifties and sixties Korea, the novel is a sweeping tale of life, love, and loss that traces the long shadow cast by war over families and individuals. The book opens on a budding love triangle between Haemi, Kyunghwan, and Jisoo, teenagers living in a refugee settlement after being forced away from their homes. A free spirit, Haemi seeks adventure in the form of illicit drinking sessions even during those difficult times, but she is bridled by her love for her sick brother Hyunki, who requires almost-constant care. Kyunghwan, her partner-in-crime, has feelings for her that he suppresses, going so far as to help his cousin Jisoo court Haemi instead. Thus begins an entanglement that will last the rest of their lives and beyond.
Kim imbues her debut novel with vivid descriptions that conjure up the characters’ surroundings. From a passage describing a river in Seoul:
Huts on stilts stood rickety and fragile like flock-lost birds along the river’s edge. Women in stained shirts poured buckets of laundry water from their windows. Others threw out their shit and urine and their vegetable ends, their children’s vomit. Everyone’s noses and mouths and asses leaked from sickness and no one could escape it.
In this indirect way, we are shown how lives are affected by the larger historical events playing out around them, even when the protagonists make decisions that seemingly come from nowhere except their hearts.
During the war, Jisoo and Kyunghwan both enlist, the former with a grim enthusiasm and the latter against his will, while Haemi works as a nurse’s assistant in a field hospital. Although their experiences in and near the army do not make up the bulk of the book, and most of the events are recounted only as summaries by the men, the various ways that war touches them form the cruxes of their lives. Jisoo is determined to marry Haemi before going off to war. In his mind, marriage fulfills some sense of normalcy, of how things are done, in the void left by the disappearance of his entire family. But after a permanent injury during military service, his idea of normalcy is torn from him. He grows increasingly intolerant of reality, especially when it comes to the human needs and failings of his loved ones as measured against his notion of what they ought to be. For Kyunghwan, enlisting in the army dashes his deepest hopes: going to college and being with Haemi. And it is during war, in the absence of the men, that Haemi comes into her own, gaining an independence that she will later sorely miss.
A central question asked by the novel is, what does thwarted desire do to a person? Historical events, class stratification, and gender roles all contribute to shape and restrict life choices. Beyond these large forces, however, the mystery of personality plays a large part in determining fate. In Jisoo, it is his failure to impose his wants on his environment that frustrate him. In Kyungwhan, it is inaction or a kind of aloofness. In Haemi, a hard pragmatism and a self-erasing sacrifice for family. To follow these three different arcs is to study the consequences of character. The turning points in the novel do not hinge upon acts of god, but rather impose difficult decisions on the three protagonists, their internal struggles and half-hidden motivations brought skillfully to life by Kim. The “what if?” echoing in the background of the novel becomes, for the reader, “what would I do?”
In this way, the novel’s depiction of desires thwarted and secrets withheld, plus the book’s many emotional climaxes, bring to mind the best Asian TV dramas. In the part of Asia I am from, these long-running dramas are serious affairs, followed by an enormous and dedicated viewership, often instigating heated debates about the morality of the characters’ actions, or the justness of their fates. Viewers learn and rehearse how to act during extraordinary circumstances in their own lives through such televised and streamed dramas. It is in this sense that If You Leave Me engages our attention and spurs our contemplation, showing how an unkind word, or a simple act omitted, can derail lives and unravel relationships. The care that Kim puts into fleshing out her characters, detail by detail, invites us to root for their triumphs and feel their regrets. At the same time, Kim is never moralistic in unspooling the connection between their fates and decisions, ill-formed or otherwise.
Though Kim’s prose is mostly precise and surefooted, a few details can seem jarring. For example, when Haemi and Jisoo converse with a US soldier, it is hard to tell which parts of the dialogue are in English, and which parts are Korean rendered in English for the reader. This jolting awareness of reading Korean rendered in English resurfaces later, when Kyunghwan receives a letter from Haemi and recognizes her handwriting by “the slight curl she [gives] the n in [his] name.”
But these are minor interruptions in an otherwise wholly engrossing read. Stakes are high for the protagonists, especially Haemi in her role as occasionally reluctant wife and mother. And what brings these stakes alive is Kim’s exquisite control over the rhythm of her prose that tightens and slackens to great effect. The passage where Haemi comes upon a grenade is amazingly evocative and entirely successful in its portrayal of Haemi’s impulsive streak, as well as the atmosphere of wartime living:
Clouds came out in streams and caught on the trees. Mist and a grenade and smoke and the whore and the sliding open of doors and the smell—artificial, burning, unfamiliar. It wasn’t a bomb at all.
“What’s wrong with you?”
Nothing. Nothing was wrong.
We were fine. We were undrowned, awake, not strung across the trees in pieces. We were fine.
The novel is narrated in the first person by different people, not just the three central characters, but also Haemi’s sick brother Hyunki, and her eldest daughter Solee. How different characters tell their stories is worth studying—whether they do so in full detail, or in summary and passing references. For example, Haemi records her time at the field hospital unflinchingly, with occasional gory details. Contrast this to Jisoo’s and Kyunghwan’s wartime sections. Jisoo not only elides his time as an enlistee at first, but invents a story to cover up a truth that he views as embarrassing. Similarly, his later failure as a landowner is heavily implied but never admitted fully by Jisoo himself, who instead hurries over his enterprise’s bitter end with passive, self-exculpatory phrases:
Over the years, half the fields had been broken off, peddled to tenants by government men who knew nothing about farming…. And farther on, the property I should have owned in Seoul, which had been taken from beneath my feet.
Always disappointed by life, Jisoo invents alternate versions of reality and represses events he cannot stomach. It is later, in Haemi’s account, that we see just how dire Jisoo’s situation is, when a creditor comes to the couple’s home and touches Haemi against her will, right in front of Jisoo, while declaring: “He [Jisoo] owes me.”
Kyunghwan, too, summarizes his activity in the army without Haemi’s urgent attention and tight lens. And elsewhere, he seems to float through life, holding himself at a distance, never participating fully. For instance, we never get his reaction to failing his college entrance exams; the defeat is presented as a fact and abruptly dropped as a plot point. He seems doomed to be waiting always, hence the choppiness in his narratives, as he is buoyed from point to point in an arc not within his control. His interactions with the opposite sex, too, are often conveyed in a curt fashion, sometimes without resolution (his sustained flirtation with under-aged Aejung, who simply disappears from the narrative), and sometimes sketched in just a few sentences (his interactions with Sunmi). Women come, women go, and so do jobs. He talks about them—women and jobs—lightly, at times almost dismissively, as if his real life is happening elsewhere.
Unlike the men, Haemi details her heartbreak and her depressive episodes to great effect. She is ultimately the one who moves the action forward when she confronts her unhappiness head-on and writes it down on paper in the form of a letter to Kyunghwan. Haemi is the clear-eyed one who sees life as it is in the present, and who responds with the whole of her uninhibited emotional being to her very limits.
Many contemporary novels use multiple first-person accounts to carry forward the overall story arc, but If You Leave Me stands out in the success of its deployment of this popular device. The historical events, too, are not mere backdrop or circumstances in the characters’ lives, but fundamentally shape and inform individual agencies and community ties. The end result is a novel that irresistibly calls for our involvement.
