Songgo Kwon Yong-Ok soothed his anger through poems under the rule of Japanese Empire and devoted his life educating his pupils to prepare for a new age. Also He didn't think about studying in Japan even though it would lead to successful life. He also refused to move to Manchuria to escape from the oppression of the Japanese Empire. He settled down in this area and lived with the nation like pine trees. Songgo's life shows well how conservative intellectuals prepared for and responded to the future of the nation in the age of the fetters.
Songgo's life made a difference of the history of Korean spiritual civilization under the rule of Japanese Empire. Therefore, studying about him will be able to provide aid in the study of confucian life under Japanese rule and how to pursue it into the new century.
