- 300 pages of 1Q84 finished so far (out of about 1,000)
- 15 Episodes of Tree With Deep Roots watched
- 1Q84 deals with a lot of the concept of reality, and what is real, and what is not, and to what extent and how we accept unreality/real things. I’m still confused by this and need to put some time to think that. This is definitely different from a lot of previous Murakami works (Norwegian Wood, Kafka on the Shore, South of the Border, West of the Shore)
- Tree With Deep Roots – Well-written sageuk (사극; 史剧: shi3 ju4; historical drama). Such a good example revealing the motives of politicians who want power, the definition of the “greater good”, the History of Hangul (I wanted to cry at some moments), and the desire to empower the greater good.
I still don’t feel like going to school yet.
