Baekgok Kim Deuk-shin was a poet of the 17th century. He left many poems while traveling all over the country. The "Baekgokjip" contains 1594 poems left while traveling. The number of poems related to Cheongju is relatively high, with dozens of poems related to Cheongju. He fully displayed the lyric and sentiment enjoyed in Cheongju. Jatbat Village, Neungchon Village, and Yulchi were all located near or near Cheongju-mok, which was the base of his life. As a result, it was natural to visit Cheongju and record the poem. There were many familiar officials and poets in Cheongju-mok. Hong Seok-ki, a renowned poet in Cheongjumok, was one of his closest friends. From the perspective of Baekgok, it was not only geographically easy to find Cheongju, but also there were many people who could communicate with each other through human interaction. Based on this, his poems were classified.
The following was described in relation to the lyricism in Cheongju, the meeting and parting, and the friendship with Manju Hongseok.
First, in "Reading in Cheongju," Baekgok looked at the emotional implications of accepting the lyric of nature. In 「Bok Cha Seon Gun Chim Ryu Gyeong Si Un」 and 「Mill Am Dong」, it is assimilated into nature and depicts the excitement in a picture, and the harmony of heaven and earth and the spirit of assimilation with nature are well illustrated. In addition, if "Jak Gang" is a realistic portrayal of one's feelings in a static way, "Cha Bak Jung Gu Un Seo Won" is a dynamic portrayal of one's surroundings, which is in contrast to its content.
Second, 'The Brightness of Meeting and Parting' examines the author's feelings in meeting and parting with acquaintances. "Byeol Cheong Mok Chim Mun Baek Hwang" and "Gi Chung Cheong Bang Baek" are poems about the repentance of parting. Although 「Gi Chung Cheong Bang Baek」 refers to 'Byeol Mong Wol Cheon Bong' in the four districts and the sentiment toward it as 'Won Pa Ju Yeong Jong' in the eight districts, 「Byeol Cheong Mok Chim Mun Baek Hwang」 ended with 'Jeok Eung Hon Mong Kong Yu Yu'. Eight sections of 「Gi Chung Cheong Bang Baek」 replace the feelings felt in 「Byeol Cheong Mok Chim Mun Baek Hwang」. The second chapter of the 「Jeung A Sa Sin Deok Bu Hu Jae Gyu Jeong」 sings of the joy of meeting in the first and the second in the second, repentance of parting in the second part of the term. It makes to us realize the laws of 'People you meet always break up. A broken-up man will surely return someday.' here.
Another thing to note is the "stare vacantly at (悵望)’" at the end of the second chapter. Because “to think hard(懇念)” and “stare vacantly at (悵望)” are relative meanings, but here they include “to think hard(懇念)”'s meaning, which makes it a poetic word to gauge his psychological situation.
Third, 'Friendship with Man Ju Hong Won-Gu' compared and examined the relationship between the two people and their poetry. First of all, the relationship between "Zeung Hong Won Gu" of Baekgok and "Hui Kim Ja Gong Ji" of Man Ju shows that friendship as a friend and a poet is very close. However, 「Gi Hong Won-Gu」 says that 「Syeo Gon Che」 is different from his own style of poetry, which seeks genius and realistic portrayals in writing.
As such, Baekgok enjoyed sightseeing and communing in and out of Cheongju, leaving the feelings of the city. The lingering imagery is deeply felt here by singing it without filtration, sometimes admiring, sometimes happy, and sometimes sad.
