In Mujung, Lee `s enlightenment about modernism is revealed, and the space of railroads plays a pivotal role in the narrative. In particular, the space of railroads in the colonized country is portrayed as strange, exotic scenery, voicing that Koreans should change their outward appearance initially like other foreigners. Also, it describes the majority of Koreans as people of old era and bemoans that they are totally ignorant of the order of new civilization including railroads. This narrative is, to some extent, derived from some fantasy the writer held. Because fantasy is parallel to admiration, the writer `s world view in literature is associated with desire of Romanticism, even when limiting to the narrative of railroads shown in Mujung In here, ‘railroads ` have a narrative character of dynamic motifs, functioning as tools to actively help characters ` behavior and their way of thinking as well as causing a change in situation. In Mansejun, Yom promotes awareness that railroads should not be considered just positively as Lee described. A large part of the story develops in the space of railroads, and especially, the part in which a dialogical relation between the main character ‘I’ and the opposite ‘Detective’ is described effectively shows that railroads are a symbolic sign which carries away suppression and discrimination. This narrative might be regarded that any hope is involved in it because it only depicts miserable realities which people confronted. For this reason, in here, the narrative of railroads is accomplished as static motifs which cannot bring any change in situation.
