Problems that threaten humanity such as resource depletion, environmental pollution, ecosystem destruction, and abnormal climate are occurring simultaneously around the world. Not only that, as the war against the virus is prolonged, people's anxiety about an uncertain future society is increasing. Due to this, the narrative dealing with the oldest future world dystopia imagined by mankind, that is, a dark and imperfect world, is again the subject of discussion. Discussing the dystopian narrative that predicts the future and presents the agenda for the present dilemma is inevitable in the present situation.
Thus, this study examines the dystopia world of the Folding Beijing of Hao Jingfang, a Chinese science fiction novel. It won the 2016 Hugo Award for Best Novelette. A ‘Folding Beijing’ that separates space and time using cutting-edge technology is a world where clear inequality is revealed. It is also a world that does not show how the various ethical issues that can be revealed before and after the construction of the ‘Folding Beijing’ are solved in an instant, but can be reminiscent of totalitarianism that controls human thought and actions. This study paid attention to this point and analyzed why the world of Folding Beijing, except for space, has to be dystopia and whether construction of ‘Folding Beijing’ is possible in reality in connection with various phenomena currently revealed in Chinese society.
