金 素月は、朝鮮の詩人である。本名は金 廷湜。
Today’s Doodle, drawn by guest artist Ison Lee, celebrates the 118th anniversary of Korean poet Kim So Woo, whose 1922-loved lyric “The Azaleas” (“Chindallae kkot”) is considered a masterpiece. In recognition of his contribution to modern-day Korean poetry, Sowol composed many poems with the familiar rhythm of traditional Korean folk music, which made his work broadly popular.
Kim So Woo was born in 1902 in Kim Jong Sik on North Pyongyang North Road in today’s North Korea. As a teenager, Jon Sik attended the revered Osan Middle School and became a lifelong disciple of teacher and poet Kim Oku. In 1920, Jon Sik published his first poem in a literary magazine and later converted it into a “white moon” with the pen name Sowol.
A high school student in 1922, Sowall published his famous work, Azalea. This melancholy poem of love and loss influenced the colorful bursts of azalea flowers that surround his portrait in today’s graffiti artwork.
He composed more than 150 literary works and published in 1925 the only collection of his poems. This is also called “azalea”. The life of Sowol’s heartfelt composition cemented his legacy as one of the most precious poets in Korea, and many Koreans to date can memorize his poems. Founded in 1987 in the honor of Kim So-wol, the annual Sowol Poetry Award is considered one of the most prestigious awards in Korean poetry.
Happy birthday, Kim Sowol! And Lot of Blessing From GSE Family, GSE Mobiles, GSE Hotels etc
