Writing parents' memoirs

This is becoming a notes on Ohmynews blog, but nowadays it deserves attention from me and those who'd be interested to read people's life stories in the serial "Writing parents' memoirs" (부모님 자서전 대필). Seems this might be as interesting as the series 새벽을 여는 사람들 which run from early '03 to yearly '04.

Interesting but not surprising to note that women, mothers take the main role in the accounts. This is a good example: "Mother's life is like a drama" - story of loss, hardships, failures, human strength and survival. Another one is titled "My name is Pak Kûm-sun and I've lived bravely" (내 이름은 박금순, 굳세게 살았습니다), which refers to the currently running MBC drama Kutseôra Kûmsuna (Stand strong, Kûm-sun).
