- This manuscript describes that Choi, Namsun’s view on the world and literature shown in The Cheongchoon(『靑春』) which was a periodic magazine edited and published by him from 1914 to 1918. The Cheongchoon provided topics on all aspects of existing knowledges and new trends in modern culture of early 20th century including broad areas such as natural science, history, novel, poetry, comic story, and world information from east to west countries.
