Yoshimoto, one of the most popular Japanese writers in Korea, is well-known for works such as “Lizard” and “Kitchen” -- her debut work which has had 60 print runs in Japan alone and two film adaptations.

Choi is better known as K-pop star Sooyoung of Girls’ Generation. She debuted in 2007 as part of the 11-piece Girls’ Generation, which commemorated the 10th anniversary of its debut last year with the album “Holiday.”
