Abstract
The early songs of Jong Han Kim, who in his early 20s shared the idealism of the Korean Songwriters Association, can be regarded as an effort to spread Korean popular music among the masses by expressing the resentment of the repressed class.
Kim’s “Theory of Folk Songs” comprises three central ideas. First, he asserts that a ‘true folk song’ should emerge from popular music. Second, he looks back on the traditional, folkish nature of his early songs with critical distance while simultaneously criticizing the contemporariness of the Neo Folk genre. Lastly, he compares the objectless nostalgia of the ‘true folksong’ - an art form born of the hopeless reality of everyday life - to Goethe’s aesthetics Bildung, thereby accepting the equation of ‘Folk Song = Decadence = Pure Poetry’ as an ideal.
The understanding of Kim’s Theory as a theory of Pure Poetry starts becoming problematic when it begins blending with the political indifference of the avant-garde and becomes confused with pro-Japanese ideas.
