If I Had Your Face


A glitteringly dark and unsettling debut novel about four young women struggling to survive in contemporary Seoul If I Had Your Face plunges us into the mesmerizing world of contemporary Seoul – a place where plastic surgery is as routine as getting a haircut, where women compete for spots in secret ‘room salons’ to entertain wealthy businessmen after hours, where your family’s social status will define your job, your relationship, your entire life. Navigating this cut-throat city are four young women balancing on the razor-edge of survival: KYURI, a breathtakingly beautiful woman whose hard-won status at an exclusive room salon is threatened by an impulsive mistake with a client; MIHO, an orphan who wins a scholarship to a prestigious art school in New York, where her life becomes tragically enmeshed with the super-wealthy offspring of the Korean chaebol elite; WONNA, a newlywed whose childhood in the care of an abusive grandmother comes back to haunt her when she discovers she’s pregnant; and ARA, a mute hair stylist whose infatuation with a fresh-faced K-Pop star drives her to violent extremes.
