In 2020, the disaster triggered by COVID-19 prompted to expose potentially latent social issues in our society. Of them, issues involving the youth have arisen. Since the disaster, the lives of the youth have been highlighted including their attitude in dealing with the disaster to what they do in amidst of the pandemic, however mostly in a negative manner. Even prior, amid, and post the pandemic, the youth belong to N-Po Generation who are given up, abandoned and neglected. These youths are disgusted by ‘Hell Chosun’, a compound word likening Korea to Hell with no hope to live for, as they go through COVID-19 Red, a state of frustration exacerbated than that of COVID-19 Blue. The study hereof was conducted on the premise that the cause of the anger and hate are derived from fear and focused on the state of mind and characteristics of the youth gen- eration amid the pandemic era. In particular, the study linked Martha C. Nussbaum’s discussion on emotions including Anger, Disgust, Envy, etc., with youth issues in Korean society and presented ‘Hope’ which she suggested as an alternative for youth issues.
