I imagine that this book is written from the collective second person. Three characters all tell their portion of the undoing of the central character. Though they are not writing to her, they are active participants in the narrative, rather than an outside omniscient third-person observer. The structure is very compelling, though the mystical treatment of mental health issues seems outdated but may be a reflection of Korean context or the art of the storytelling.
