Chinese Manchurian writers‘ most important literary theme during Manchukuo Period was 'Recovering Lost Land'. They emphasized international solidarity to achieve this. The easiest foreigners to form it were Koreans who lost their country and flocked to Manchuria to become their neighbors.
Shu-Qun was a leading figure in the early days of the formation of Dong-buk Literature, an anti-Japanese literary movement. He had direct contact with Koreans, and he also portrayed them as shapes in his work. Therefore, the shapes of Koreans are well represented in his representative works "Child Without a Fatherland" and "Neighborhood".
In this work, Shu-Qun described the crisis of losing national sovereignty, which may soon occur, as an example of Koreans. There was no better case than Koreans who had already lost their country as a literary tool to promote the awakening of the Chinese.
