Old man Yun Jik won leads a miserly life after losing all his wealth and his father to robbers when he was young. And he is grateful to the Japanese people who protect his assets. Yun Jik won and his sons and daughters-in-law believe that they’re living in a time of great peace. Then one day, Yun Jik won hears that his grandson Jong-hak was arrested for participating in a socialist movement and cries, lamenting that the boy has behaved like a scoundrel.
This is a novel by Chae Man-sik, published in January to Septembers editions of Jogwang in 1938. Through the fall of Yun Jik-won’s family, which is festering with problems inside despite its peaceful façade, this work satirically describes the Korean society in the late 1930s.
1938년 <조광> 1~9월호에 발표된 채만식의 장편소설이다. 겉으로는 태평성대인 것처럼 보이지만 속으로는 곪아가고 있는 윤 직원가족의 몰락을 통해 1930년대 후반의 한국 사회를 풍자적으로 드러내고 있다.
