Korean novelist Kim Ae-ran has received a French literary award, the Prix de Linapercu, for her short story “I Go to the Convenience Store,” the Literature Translation Institute of Korea said Monday. 

The Prix de Linapercu, meaning “Prize for the Unnoticed,” is presented for work that received less attention than it deserves. Each year, a team of judges consisting of literary critics and journalists select two works for the prize, one French, the other non-French.

The story is about young poor Koreans in their 20s, dubbed the 880,000 won generation, and their struggle for survival. The 880,000 won generation are low-paid non-regular workers who earn about 880,000 won ($860) a month. The term was coined by a Korean economist in a 2007 book.

The piece revolves around a female college student who lives alone in her university neighborhood in Seoul. She regularly visits three convenience stores to buy items to alleviate her hunger, needs and sometimes loneliness. But gradually, she stops going to these stores when the owners start to notice her.

The year 2011 was a great year for Korean literature abroad. Writer Shin Kyung-sook’s “Please Look After Mom,” originally published in Korean in 2009, achieved international acclaim, a first for a Korean literary work in translation. 

The following year, Shin received the prestigious 2011 Man Asian Literary Prize, the first Korean and the first woman to receive the prize, which recognizes the best work of fiction by an Asian writer in English or translated into English. 

After years of disappointment during the Nobel season, when poet Ko Un’s name would be floated as a possible winner of the coveted Nobel literature prize, the Korean literary scene was buoyed by the news of the global success of Shin’s novel about a mother and her relationship with her family. The book was published in the U.S. by Alfred A. Knopf and in 21 other countries, including the U.K. and Poland.
