Story inspiration and other details about the novel

 

In the Philippines, there is a barangay (a village) called Dalagsaan where modern transportation is still not available. Arranged marriages are also practiced, though not as common as before.  The village is my main inspiration for the setting. There are also foreign languages in the novel, but it will not hinder your understanding of the story. The language is a Philippine dialect in the same town. Although the dialect is of the Philippines, learning Korean was my inspiration in adding the foreign language in the plot. When I arrived here in South Korea, I only knew two words – kamsahamnida (thank you) and saranghaeyo (I love you.) It was a struggle to adjust, especially because we first settled in Gangwon-do, a province in South Korea where most of the people do not speak English.

About ten years ago, a girl I know escaped from Dalagsaan village and sought refuge in the town where I was living prior to moving here in South Korea. Her struggle helped me form Kenda – my main character.

The novel features a strong female lead, so if you’re into this kind of leads, you will surely enjoy the novel.
