Writers who compose haiku in Japanese are very rare in Korea. There is a tendency to avoid writing haiku since it is a traditional poetic form originating from Japan. However, from the colonial period into the 2000s, one Korean haiku writer, Tōkyūshi Lee, continued to compose haiku in the Japanese language. This article will examine his activities from the very beginning of his career as a Korean haiku writer while focusing on his work in the 1940s and 50s. Moreover, it will observe how his philosophy regarding haiku differs from those of Japanese haiku writers by analyzing the characteristics displayed in his poems. This study will also clarify the political nature of the traditional poetry called Chōsen haiku and the general literary value of haiku, which is global.
