The pages of the eras

As Korean literature celebrates 60 years of revolutionary and historical writing since Korea gained liberation from Japanese rule, Arirang has produced a documentary looking back on the era's most influential works.

Viewers can get to know and analyze literature that resounds with historical themes. "The Pages of the Eras," a three-part series, also delves into the present-day writings of contemporary authors, as well as glimpses what's to come in literature.

This means our audience can catch live interviews with writers and others related to Korea's acclaimed works. Arirang has also brought the most memorable scenes of certain novels to life through dramatizations on screen. "The Pages of the Eras" is the first such literary retrospective in Korean broadcasting history. Tune in as we present Korea's most representative writers and their profoundly honest stories.


Part 1- A Period Marked by Both Joy and Tragedy (1945 - 1961)

This three-part series begins with a look at literature from a turbulent era. Korea gained independence from imperialist Japan in 1945. It established its independence and then survived the Korean War, which is considered the largest crisis of the Korean people's history. Then, the April 19th uprising attempted to crumble a dictatorship -- and partly succeeded. "A Period Marked by Both Joy and Tragedy" sheds light on literature that addresses a drastically changing Korea.


Part 2- A Lost and Turbulent Time (1961-1987)

Part II of our literary special deals with finding lost time. We turn the spotlight on people who struggled under a prolonged military dictatorship, whose only hope was often found in the pages of literature. It was a time when Korean society was undergoing rapid industrialization, and when left-wing writers produced resistant, anti-dictatorship literature. Some were jailed and persecuted for their beliefs. Writers Ko Eun and Kim Ji-ha are among them. Get to know their voices.


Part 3- A Period of Women and Self Discovery (1987-2005)

The final part of our literary series examines the new, diverse literary era of the 80s. Korean writing during this decade focused on ideological battles and those who were alienated. This was, largely, women. The number of women writers increased during this time. And through the Internet, a new genre of literature was birthed through technology in the '90s. In this last segment, we also examine how Korea has taken on a global, literary challenge via the 2005 Frankfurt Book Fair, which has designated Korea as this year's Guest of Honor. Join us as we get to know Korea's literary goals.

Jikji, The Great Memory

The Jikji Memory of the World Prize, which commemorates Jikji (the oldest book of movable metal print in the world), was recently established by UNESCO. It is awarded every two years to an entity that has made significant contributions to preserving documentary heritage. This Arirang special examines why the first-ever prize was awarded recently to the National Library of the Czech Republic. Viewers can learn just how well the Czech Republic has preserved the ancient heritage of print.

The program also features Egypt, India and 34 other countries considered for the prize. The prize is funded by the Republic of Korea and organized by the Municipal Council of Chungju.
