We can perceive how politics and nationalism influence the public. During the colonial period of Korea, there were not only people who were against colonization, but also people who took advantage of being colonized. However, individualism often made some Koreans take both sides, while many people were having conflicts between the Pros and Cons of colonialism. In Peace Under Heaven, Cháe Man-Sik, the author, gives a good example of the Pro-Japanese party. However, he, too, loved the country in his own way. Many of the works of other Korean authors under colonialism, such as “Flowers of Fire” by Sŏnu Hwi, also suggest conflict between different nationalisms and individualisms.
