Description

Through the lives and narratives of eight women, The Melodrama of Mobility chronicles South Korea's experience of dizzyingly rapid development. Nancy Abelmann captures the mood, feeling, and language of a generation and an era while providing a rare window on the personal and social struggles of South Korean modernity. Drawing also from television soap operas and films, she argues that a melodramatic sensibility speaks to South Korea's transformation because it preserves the tension and ambivalence of daily life in unsettled times.
