Hong Myong Hui and Historical Novel
Rim Kkok Jong

 
Hong Myong Hui (1888-1968) known as Pyokcho, a pen name, among the Korean people, was generally a man of press and social activist.
 

 
Before the liberation, he conducted patriotic literary and social activities in many social organizations as well as working as the editor-in-chief of “Dong-A Ilbo” in 1924 and the director of “Sidae Ilbo” in 1925.
When the Japanese imperialists went to extreme in their acts of obliterating the Korean nation, he began to write the historical novel “Rim Kkok Jong”, about whom was a historical figure rousing the people to fight against the ryangban (aristocratic) rulers. He saw the need to inspire the people with the spirit of resistance against the Japanese colonial rule and he took him as the theme of his novel.
As the novel began to be serialized in “Joson Ilbo” from November 1928, feedback from the readers was great and he began to come to prominence in the modern Korean literature.
Chairman Kim Jong Il saw to make a screen version of the novel with a view to making the historical novel “Rim Kkok Jong” a valuable national asset. The Korean feature film in five parts was broadcasted in the KCTV.
