It has been 150 years since the Koreans(Korea-In) were forced to migrate from the Maritime province in Soviet Union, the home of their lives, to the unfamiliar Central Asia by the Soviet government in the fall of 1937. Even though they have passed through those years, they still call themselves 'Koreans‘(Korea-In), and their bending life, which has not put a cord as a Korean nation, is another sick affair of ours. However, the lives of the Koreans(Korea-In) have accumulated in the veil for a while, but they have begun to attract attention recently. As a result, numerous studies on Koreans(Korea–In) have exploded, and active research is underway. Most studies, however, focus on Korean Diaspora (forced migration) history. In other words, it focuses on the deplorable immigration, violence, coercive measures, and forced lives of the Koreans(Korea-In) in Central Asia.
Of course, this initial study is of great significance even if it made a great contribution to the formation of consensus as the same national. This is because we could understand how the history of Koreans(Korea-In) that had been covered in veil flowed. However, it is now considered that analyzing the Korean community people based on more objective facts is the right way to understand them properly. For this purpose, it is more important than ever to analyze the <Lenin Gichi> newspaper, the sole source of their daily life.
As <Lenin Gichi> is the party institution, all the articles in the newspaper are thoroughly censored, so it is difficult to grasp the realities of the Koreans(Korea-In) completely. However, when we look closely, the traces of the Koreans(Korea-In) are revealed in various forms in the newspaper <Lenin Gichi>.
There are sometimes satirical and realistic criticisms, for example, classified as "feuilleton", which makes it possible to look into the real life of the Koreans(Korea-In) in these articles. Feuilleton is a genre of satirical and critical newspapers based on fact-based data. It is not a straightforward narrative, but rather a feature that breaks down the phenomenon of overturned bypass, which makes it very useful for approximating the concrete daily life of Koreans(Korea-In). Unlike the article of <Lenin Gichi>, which is issued under strict control, the Feuilleton style is a space where only Koreans(Korea-In) can communicate privately. These satirical texts contain the material that closely resembles reality, which is an important clue to look at the vivid scene of Korean community at that time.
In the 1950s, <Lenin Gichi> began to take on a more flexible form at the beginning of the transition period. Not only Peloton, but also new corners are noticeable, occupying a corner of the <Lenin Gichi> newspaper floor in various formats such as "Reader's Letters," "Discussion on paper," and "Newspaper Dictionary."
Therefore, this article analyzes the various types of corners in the <Lenin Gichi>, and aims to trace what is inherent in the Korean community in the 1950s and to gauge the identity of Koreans(Korea-In) of the time. In particular, we will focus on the mutual ability of Koreans(Korea-In) in their native language and Korean traditional culture. Ultimately, this work is part of the process of completing a specific topographical map of forced migration(diaspora) history.
