Following a general presentation by Prof. KIM Dae-Haeng and KIM Young-Min, 8 scholars gave presentations about the featured writers' lives and literary activities. These writers were active in various literary fields. In light of the fact that the history of modern Korean literature goes back nearly 100 years, they are the originators of all genres of Korean literature.
As part of the symposium, an informal literary event was held at the Neutinamu Cafe, where the relatives of the featured writers talked about the writer in their family.
