[서울=뉴시스]Intern reporter Jeong Jin-ah = ‘Hall of Yeseol’ meets great but forgotten artists who are sleeping in ‘Mangwoo History and Culture Park’.
On KBS 1TV’s ‘Hall of Yeseol’, which airs at 10:30 pm on the 26th, the last story of the 4 trilogy planned to mark the 50th anniversary of public broadcasting, ‘Time to walk through memories – Mangwoo History and Culture Park’ will be aired.
Manguri Cemetery, which was once an object of avoidance, has now been transformed into Mangwoo History and Culture Park, which is visited by many citizens. In Manguri History and Culture Park, great figures representing Korea’s modern times are buried, such as Lee Jung-seop, the painter of bulls, Han Yong-un, who wrote the poem ‘The Silence of the Lord’, and Yu Gwan-soon, a martyr who gave her life for the independence of her country. In particular, it is said that we can also discover the footsteps of great artists forgotten by us.
The first person you will meet is Lee In-seong, a genius painter representing Daegu. Reminiscent of Gauguin’s ‘primitive colors’, his representative work ‘One Autumn Day’ contains the local beauty of Korea through the harmony of red land and blue sky. Kim Gu-ra, who saw the work, admired it, saying, “It is not unreasonable to call him Gauguin of Korea.”
Lee In-seong, born in 1912, showed outstanding talent in painting and left for Japan to study early. He swept all kinds of awards at the young age of 24 and shook up the Korean and Japanese art circles. Lee In-seong is an icon of genius, to the extent that there is a saying in Daegu, “Son Ki-jeong for running, Choi Seung-hee for dancing, and Lee In-seong for painting.” However, there is a negative label attached to this genius painter that he has not been able to shake off even after death. Professor Yoo Hong-jun said that while explaining this, he burst into anger, saying that it was nonsense. What is the label attached to Lee In-seong?
Sculptor Kwon Jin-kyu is rumored to be a disciple of Rodin who sculpted ‘The Thinker’, surprising everyone. Regarding this, curator Kim In-hye explains that it is because of the relationship between Rodin, Bourdel, Takashi Shimizu, and Jin-kyu Kwon.
His works, such as ‘Youth’ and ‘Jiwon’s Face’, which stand out for their vivid descriptions based on skeletons, received great acclaim at a solo exhibition held in Japan. RM of the group ‘BTS’, well known as a lover of Korean art, also owns a work called ‘Horse’ by Kwon Jin-gyu. However, the performers who learned about Kwon Jin-kyu’s later years could not hide their bitterness. Kwon Jin-kyu, who now sleeps peacefully in Mang-wu, what was his end like? Listen to Kwon Jin-kyu’s last moments in the voice of RM who loves him.
Two genius artists, Lee In-sung and Kwon Jin-kyu, who became friends after their tragic lives ended by sleeping together in Mangwu. Why are they forgotten by us? Regarding this, Professor Yoo Hong-jun said, “It’s because people aren’t interested and don’t study,” and “KBS should reflect on this.”
