This paper considers the aspects of traditional Japanese poetry that developed on the Korean Peninsula in the 20th century, and the ways in which it grew out of the historical context. By the 1910s, a school of poetry based on Haiku, Tanka, and Senryu had formed, promulgated through the literary pages of various magazines and newspapers. In the 1920s for example, the literary journals Shinjin, Kusanomi, Kame, and Senryuzanmai, as well as works of each genre in book form were published on a large scale, as part of the cultural policies of the Governor-General of Korea. At this time, various short forms of poetry (including Dodoitsu) developed, and there were conflicts and contentions among literary groups over the poetic use of local (Joseon) content and color. Soon after the Sino-Japanese War, even in the context of a hermetically-sealed literary world, Mizukinuta, the journal focused on Haikus, and Kokuminshiika, focused on Tankas, were quickly produced to keep these genres alive, and seem to have continued to agonize over their role while attempting to accommodate themselves to the historical situation. However, it can be said that the Haiku and the Tanka became marginal literary forms in the second half of the 20th century on the Korean Peninsula, due to the tension in Korea-Japan relations, and despite the spread of these forms globally.
