ABSTRACT

Akai Kuji is a modern novel published in 1955 by Seicho Matsumoto, which depicts the colonial Choseon before and after liberation and the return of the Japanese people based on military experience from 1944 until the defeat. From the perspective of Korean readers in the 21st century, I would like to evaluate the following points: First, Seicho, who was defeated in Korea as a Japanese soldier, did not focus on confrontation and conflict between Koreans and Japanese. In other words, it dealt with the nature of the war and the sacrifices forced on women, not the national confrontation. Second, it depicts the risk that a soldier's wife has to deal with during the war in a cool and objective manner amid the sexual desire of soldiers and the absence of her husband.
