Crying in H Mart

Michelle Zauner, founder of the indie rock/dream pop band Japanese Breakfast, writes about her Korean heritage, the loss of her mother to cancer, and how she cultivated her identity in the face of so much loss.

She takes us down the aisles of H Mart and gives mouth-watering descriptions of the Korean meals that her mother would prepare for her, even intricately curating her dining experience.
