From Politics to Ethics: Jung Yi Hyun, Kim Ae-ran, Jeon Sungtae, and Kim Yeonsu   By Kim Hyoung-joong on Nov 01 2014 00:24:19 Vol.12 Summer 2011 The new generation of writers tackles the most pressing concerns of their time, pursuing uncomfortable, but necessary questions.   The fall of the Soviet Union at the end of the 1980s had a great influence on Korean literature, contributing to a decline of the political. Partly because of the fall of the Soviet Union and the decline of Marxism, a great part of the progressive energy that governed Korean literature in the 80s split into sub-themes such as the inner world, everyday life, femininity, and culture. The economic crisis of 1997 marked another watershed, a point many critics tacitly agree on. After the economic crisis, Korean society was drawn into the demands of globalization and a free-for-all market economy that gave into the demands of global financial trends. This period marks the beginning of a new millennium literature in Korea.
