"To read is to perform. I have many names, however, that cannot be true. The title of this text has been changed many times, and these are the names I can still recall: 'Drinking milk', 'Look!', 'The Breath', and 'Sin'. I am afraid of making mistakes. It seems mistakes are omnipresent, and the phobia about making a mistake is never discontinued. I am afraid I am alone."
So starts Sine Kang's existential tale of a mother and son. Sine's work delves into the ideas of hatred, knowledge, the world, perfection, and the concept of words themselves.
With confidence in the written word, Sine's masterful work rouses the readers mind in concepts and thoughts that will preoccupy a mind long after the work has been completed. Through witnessing the discussion between a mother and son, a son's whose voice is ignored, and a mother whose ignorance is forced, we come to understand that the long discussions of Mother and Son on the page is merely an example of the discussions we wish to have with our friends, our loved ones, and ourselves.
Siné is a poet and playwright in South Korea. She lives on an island called Namhae-gun. And she invites you to read along.

    Scorch marks blacken the wireframe dungeon, and the smell of burnt meat hangs in the air. Iarumas’s party stumbles upon a corpse, more charcoal than flesh, and Raraja insists on dragging it out. Murmur—Chant—Pray—Invoke. A large-framed girl named Berkanan gulps the fresh air of her second chance at life. Her confidence is low and her skills as a fledgling mage are inadequate, but despite all that, she has a serious goal—kill the red dragon that burned her party alive. This dragon, an interloper from the lower levels of the dungeon, has become so notorious that even the most seasoned parties refuse to engage. Even so, Garbage and Raraja agree to aid Berkanan, and Iarumas lends his support. The chances of failure are high, but in the dungeon, immolation is not a permanent long as someone is willing to pay. Can Iarumas’s party douse the flames of the dragon, or will they all succumb to a menacing red death?
