The  Complete and thorough bio-bibliography of the SFWUK member writers

Sungsik Hwang (황성식)

Sungsik Hwang benefited from the masterpieces of popular culture in the 1980s and 1990s while growing up. While in college he was stimulated by the renaissance of Korean film and began to create his own stories by making short films and writing scenarios.

Sungsik wrote film scenarios for many years while receiving grants from Korea Creative Content Agency and CJ Cultural Foundation and naturally transitioned to fiction-writing because some SF ideas could not be realized in movie scenarios. His short story "A Girl and Her Dog" (개와는 같이 살 수 없다) won the Excellence Prize in the 2018 Korea Science Fiction Awards and he debuted as a writer. Afterwards he published his works in webzine Crossroads and SF mook Today’s SF Vol. 2 and won the creative writing grant from Korea Foundation for the Advancement of Science and Creativity. In 2020 his short story "Alfred’s Cat" (알프레드의 고양이) won the Excellency Prize in the eighth Kyobo Bookstore Story Contest in the short stories and novellas category.

Sungsik dreams of dramatic encounters and reconciliation among conflicting and opposing subjects such as the Korean society and Hollywood blockbusters, problems of social class and the yearning for a superhero. He also continues to ponder on what he can tell through SF as a Christian in the era of the fall of Christianity.
