ABSTRACT

Shū Qún's 《Neighbor》Da Ping Wan's 《Manchurian Story》talk about the tragic life of Korean women who had to endure the tormet to survive in Manchuria, 1930. The two novels were both written in 1936 with Manchuria as the background, and their main subject is that mothers with lineage from Koryo both force prostitution on their daughters due to desperate situations. The two writers raised questions such as, "Does extreme poverty lead to an absence of great maternal love?" and revealed various Chinese views toward them. Some became angry and some showed pity. Some even became afraid. However, this is a type of 'otherization' underlying the 'superiorism' of Chinese. In this regard, the paper will divide Korean women in literary works into "mothers who have lost instinctive love" and "daughters forced into prostitution" in order to examine the plight of Korean women in the 1930s who failed to escape extreme poverty, as well as socio-structural issues, and analyze Chinese attitudes toward them with background knowledge.
