      Cho Nam-joo's feminist novel "Kim Ji-young, Born 1982" was among TIME magazine's 100 Must-Read Books of this year.

      TIME said the novel was chosen because it "inspired many young women to reconsider the roles they've been tacitly forced into."

      The autobiographical novel is about a housewife who becomes a stay-at-home mother and later suffers from depression as she experiences everyday sexism.

      It took Cho just two months to write.
