This article explores how Hannah undergoes her difficult life experience called han, and how she is being transformed beyond the logic of us or them hermeneutics. In the process of transformation Hannah engages three phases of attitude or moments of life: I am nothing, I am something, and I am anything. The story of Hannah becomes a story of public, holistic transformation that involves self, community and society. Copyright 2008 Yung Suk Kim.
