Actress-turned-writer Gu Hye-sun published her novel Tango last month, and it has been selling briskly. The actress is even holding a fan-signing event, which will be held on May 10. It’s doing so well that plans have been announced to adapt the novel to a manhwa as well.

The story starts as a twentysomething young woman named Yeon grows tired of a relationship with her boyfriend; when they talk, they find themselves arguing and missing each other’s points, and he drinks too much, and isn’t considerate of her feelings. They break up, and she learns stuff.

There’s also an entire chapter that is only several sentences long, that serve to tell us, “I’m going to become happy.”
