The former news presenter and now freelance TV personality Paik Ji-yeon has made her debut as a novelist. "I'd wanted to write a novel since I was in high school, and it finally happened this year," Paik said. She has published nine compilations of her essays, but this is her first work of fiction.
"My job allowed me to meet a lot of people, and made me realize each individual on this planet has his or her own way of life. I've mostly dealt with facts in my career, but felt that sometimes fiction can reveal the truth better," she said.
Paik was the youngest person to present MBC's prime time news program in 1988, and has been an active freelance TV host since 2003.
