ABSTRACT

After the death of the race, Haseo Kim In-hoo left his government post at the age of 36 and returned to his hometown after a short five-year retirement life, concentrating on his studies and fostering younger students. Social politics at that time caused great disappointment to Kim In-hoo, but he did not stay there and worked in literature at Sunchang Jeomam Village to fulfill his bigger dream. Hunmongjae is a lecture space built by Haseo Kim In-hoo in 1548 to train his juniors after entering Jeomam Village with his family. For Haseo, this place was as meaningful as Pilamseowon Confucian Academy in Jangseong, but unfortunately, there are very few records of Hunmongjae. In this article, based on the rare records, we examined how Kim In-hoo built Hunmongjae in Sunchang and conducted lectures, and analyzed several poems that correspond to three of the 28 works of Eoam Japyeong. Kim In-hoo understood filial piety as the foundation of humanity, and said that filial piety toward parents in human life is the most desperate of the ethics set by heaven. After Kim In-hoo stepped down from his government post, he tried to support his parents by serving them in nature. While he was serving as a government official, he expressed his gratitude to heaven for the health of his parents in his hometown through poetry. The love of nature has become a disease beyond appreciation to Kim In-hoo. The disease of attachment to nature was naturally expressed in poetry. While the body was actually suffering from the disease, it was unable to shake off the mind of natural prostitution, so it was expressed in poetry that it was only looking forward to getting better. For Kim In-hoo, the disease that misses nature was also a cure for overcoming the disease of the body. After Kim In-hoo returned to his hometown, he attached his heart to nature and imitated his feelings into plum blossoms to reveal his pure heart and portray a fairy tale in nature. It was recognized that cultivating and singing plum blossoms in nature is a way to cultivate the mind and body, and it was intended to form a poetic image of natural objects. This is the characteristic element of Kim In-hoo's work, which he sang while living a leisurely life away from nature. As a representative poet of Honam Poetry, Kim In-hoo created natural poems such as "Sosaewon 48 Young" and "Myeonangjeong 30 Young." In particular, "Eoam Japyeong," which reveals his life as it is in nature awareness, and "Chilgye 10yeong," show the extraordinary and high artistry of poetry writing. In Jeomam Village, Kim In-hoo tried to enjoy the customs of nature by learning the logic of heaven in nature, away from the many party disputes that had made him difficult. Kim In-hoo's achievements in various literary works in Jeomam Village show this aspect well.
