Lee Hyoseok’s works are generally categorized as having three tendencies: the tendency of the “fellow traveler,” eroticism, and xenophilia. In earlier years, Lee wrote as a “fellow traveler,” publishing socially critical works. Then along with the general decline of proletarian literature, he sought a new genre of literature: lyricism. He became absorbed in the world of eroticism, using idyllic settings, and freeing himself from his political tendency. “Bunnyeo” is the work that shows this new tendency.
