The non-fiction novel “Hometown” is based on a true story of the author Park Ok-Nam. The book tells a story of Korean immigrants relocated to China and their accomplishments. Park Ok-Nam has said “90% of the content of Hometown is real, and I added the title Based on True Stories in order to distinguish it from the pure fiction novels.” This indicates that the writer consciously emphasizes the authenticity of the story. Therefore, we can say that Hometown has recorded the memories of three generations of immigrants, and has the connotation of proving and recording the life and history of Korean immigrants.
