      sau khi đọc xong cuốn này (thực ra là một truyện ngắn | song ngữ Hàn-Anh) + một nửa cuốn tiểu thuyết khác (có thể coi là gần như nổi nhất ở Hàn) của Hwang Jung Eun thì dám nói chị là nữ tác giả Hàn Quốc mình thích nhất trong số các tác giả đã đọc quá :"nữ tính, da diết nhưng thản nhiên và không đến mức ủy mị (ở nhiều chỗ) như Shin Kyung Sook, có chạm đến nhiều vấn đề xã hội nhưn [...]
