For the American modernist writer, see Djuna Barnes.

Djuna is the nom de plume of a South Korean science fiction writer and critic "who started publishing sci-fi short fiction and film reviews on the Internet in 1993 and steadily rose to prominence."[1] Cho S[2] ung-myeon, in a review of Korean SF, says " Perhaps the greatest impact on Korean science fiction in over 100 years would have been Djuna. With such works as Battle of the Butterflies (1997), Duty Free Zone (2000), and The Pacific Continental Express (2002), Korean science fiction gained traction as an important genre in literature. Djuna was, indeed, well-received both in and out of the literary world due to outstanding storytelling and a well thought out composition."
