The King of DancersYu, Jin


This novel reinterprets Hindu mythology from a modern viewpoint in a way of fantasy. Story throws deep questions about humans, gods, destiny and our existence.



깊이와 재미를 두루 갖춘 근래 보기 드문 판타지 소설

힌두 신화를 현대적으로 재해석한 신선한 시도!


힌두 신화를 현대적으로 재해석하여 판타지만이 할 수 있는 방식으로 인간과 신, 운명과 존재에 대한 깊은 질문을 던지는 장편 소설 『춤추는 자들의 왕』 1·2권이 황금가지에서 출간되었다. 『춤추는 자들의 왕』은 2001년부터 하이텔에 연재되며 폭발적인 반응을 불러 온 작품으로, 10년이 흐른 지금까지도 제목으로 검색을 하면 수많은 관련 글이 뜰 정도로 판타지 소설 팬들의 입에 오르내리며 추천작 목록에 올라 있는 소설이다. 연재 때부터 이 작품을 유심히 지켜보며 출판에 이르도록 도와준 『테러리스트』의 작가 송경아가 추천사를 썼으며, 한국 판타지 계를 이끄는 작가 이영도가 작품에 대한 해설을 썼다. 수준 높은 국내 판타지 소설에 목마른 독자들이라면 타자 이영도의 개성적인 해설을 읽은 후에 새로운 시각으로 한 번 더 독서에 탐닉하는 것 또한 즐거운 일이 될 것이다.



당신이 이제껏 본 적 없을 새로운 판타지 소설!

방대한 자료 수집, 10년간의 퇴고!

“판타지의 형식으로 숙명과 자유 의지, 인간성과 신성에 대해 묻는다.” ― 송경아


작품에 대한 인연으로 흔쾌히 『춤추는 자들의 왕』의 추천사를 쓴 송경아는 이 소설을 두고 “삭막한 현대 생활 속에서 말초적인 재미와 현실 도피로 향하는 기존의 판타지와는 달리, 판타지만이 던질 수 있는 형식으로 숙명과 자유 의지, 인간성과 신성에 대한 물음을 던지는 소설”이라고 평하였다. 『춤추는 자들의 왕』은 일반적으로 흔히 볼 수 있는 재미만을 추구하는 판타지 소설을 넘어서 세계관과 작품성을 갖춘 근래 보기 드문 판타지 소설이다. 정치학도 출신인 작가 유진이 이 소설을 쓰기 위해 참고한 문헌들만 100권이 넘으며 그중에는 석사 학위 논문들을 포함해서 외국 서적까지 있다. 유진은 이 소설을 위해 10년 가까운 시간을 투자하여 끊임없는 퇴고의 과정을 거쳤고, 소설은 더욱 매끄러운 대사와 자연스러운 묘사를 느낄 수 있는 작품으로 재탄생했다. 여성 작가다운 섬세한 필체로 각각의 인물들을 개성 있게 그려내, 독자들은 현대 세계에 되살아난 힌두 신화 속 신들의 고뇌를 생생하게 맛볼 수 있을 것이다.




송경아 추천사

생존경쟁으로 숨 쉴 틈 없는 삭막한 현대 생활에서 판타지 소설이 독자에게 줄 수 있는 것은 말초적인 재미와 현실도피뿐일까? <춤추는 자들의 왕>은 판타지 소설만이 던질 수 있는 형식으로 숙명과 자유 의지, 인간성과 신성에 대한 물음을 던진다. 낯설고 매혹적인 인도 신화와 현대 한국의 젊은이들의 사랑을 접목시키면서, 우리 내면 깊숙한 곳에 있는 영성을 들여다보자고 속삭이는 구도소설이기도 하다.
