ABSTRACT

This paper aims to introduce a new poetic work, titled <Korea-sa-ga(高麗寺歌)>(a song of Korea temple) written by Kim, Mun-Se(金文世. 1894~1926). The Korea-sa(temple) had located at Hangzou in China since the Song(宋) dynasty up to now. This work was published at monthly magazine titled 『Buddhism(佛敎)』 on January of 1925. The form of this work is a kind of Korean song, named 'Changga(唱歌)' which was composed by 7 and 5 syllables in one sentence in order. It was said that the first work of Changga is <Song of Kyung-Bu railroad(京釜鐵道歌)>(1908) created by Choi, Nam-Sun(崔南善), a great poet at the period of enlightenment of Korea. But it was said that this work has revealed a naive cognition about the period of the Japanese colonial period, and has an affirmative attitude to Japanese Empire. On the contrary to this, <Korea-sa-ga> has a characteristic as a resistance literature, because of the writer Kim, Mun-se had been acted as a resister in 1919~1926. So it can be certainly said that <Korea-sa-ga> can be called as a new works which had significant meaning in the history of the literature and resistance movement in the Japanese colonial period in Korea.
