The Cloud Dream of the Nine


The Cloud Dream of the Nine (九雲夢, Hangul 구운몽) by Gwangsan Kim clan's Kim Man-jung is a 17th-century Korean novel set in Tang Dynasty China. It has been called “one of the most beloved masterpieces in Korean literature." In 2019, Penguin Classics published a new translation by Heinz Insu Fenkl entitled The Nine Cloud Dream. It was the first literary work of Korea to be translated into English, by James Scarth Gale in 1922. Richard Rutt's 1974 translation is entitled A Nine Cloud Dream. The oldest existing text of Kuunmong was written in Chinese.
