Waiting for Mama (Omma Majung: 엄마 마중)

This tender story was first published in a newspaper in 1938. This tale from Korea is universal–a small child waits for Mama at the station, asking the conductor if he has seen her. The conductor hasn’t, but cautions the child to wait a little farther from the tracks. It is cold and snowy but the child waits patiently until finally Mama comes.

This is written in Korean. The English-Korean edition book is also available.

Featured in Volume I, Issue 2 of WOW Review.
