This article seeks to find out the reverse side of reform and opening that has not been recorded in the history of the government office through explosion chronicles. In the non-fiction form of historical magazines, the ambiguity of the narrator and the actual speaker, and the radius of reality and fiction widened by mythorealism, works reveal the truth that China experienced, which did not seem to exist. In particular, the incident of urbanization in rural areas shows how the rural areas, which had no foundation, were forced to respond to the call of the state. The experience of something other than urbanization, which soon shows the vast numbers and physical spaces in the history of the government office, reveals the reverse side of reform and opening up, reflecting on the present of China, which has passed 40 years of reform and opening up. Through this, we can point out a new context for the function and value of cities through how urbanization was done and what was missing and forgotten in it.
The overall outline and context of the work is directed to the point where the deterioration of ethics, the loss of tradition, and the destruction of character began from the reform and opening up. In the form of historical journals, the author makes a relatively brief summary of the period of civilization and sets the starting point of various abolition as reform and opening, and strongly criticizes it. This attempt by the author is of course meaningful in itself, but the rationale and inevitability of the attempt must be fully understood by the reader. Despite the esoteric composition of historical journals and Mythorealism, the novel was able to give a light echo because of the urgency and inevitability of revealing the invisible truth behind the attempt. But this desperation and self-assertion reveal its limitations as it boils down to doubts that have mobilized all parts of the novel to bring it to the point of criticism of urbanization caused by reform and opening up.
