Although I only interacted online with Dr. Song (who insisted that I call him 'JP') a few times, I was delighted to republish his poetry translations on Koreabridge for the last few months. His work added a unique literary voice to our site and his translation of Snow by Kim Soo-Young was a timely feature during our recent snowy winter on the peninsula. I found out this week that JP had been seriously ill for quite a while and died earlier this month. To honor his life and work, I have posted several links below along with tributes from his memorial service.
