 Audio Book '"Tran Thanh Lan’s Dairy Laid to Rest" 


Audio Book (excerpt)

Diary written on Feb. 2nd of 2008 firstly appeared in the world beside dead body of Tran Thanh Lan, a Vietnamese woman who migrated to Korea. Total 16 page Diary on both sides of paper contains detailed records of her 26 day marriage written in Vietnamese. Diary with her very fine handwritten letters were 8 pieces of paper with edges torn. Diary was neglected during an initial investigation. On April 2nd of 2008, Diary in incomplete Korean costume had to watch that a defendant was suspended from prosecution. In July of 2016, Diary was reborn through 600 page drawing work and changed its costume to perfect Korean through strenuous efforts. Diary filed a criminal complaint again to reveal truth on December 28th of 2018 but the prosecution didn’t indict the defendant due to lack of evidence. Diary didn’t yield to this result. Diary filed a motion in a High Court just four days before statute of limitations. However, High Court denied the motion on May 25th of 2018. Eventually, statute of limitations ran out four days later on May 29th and Diary was laid to rest. This audio book was manufactured to record 16 page truth that Diary wanted to tell the world and to comfort her victimized soul. Finally.
