Lee Hyo-Seok (Pen name: Gasan)
Born in Bongpyeong-myeon, Pyeongchang-gun, Gangwon-do, Lee Hyo-seok began his life as a writer with the publication of “City and Ghost” in 1928. Subsequently publishing such works as “Noryeonggeunhae,” “Landing,” “March.” and “Meet by Chance,” Yi actively established himself as an author sympathetic to the proletariats during the Japanese Colonial Period. Later on, he was an active member of an authors’ modernism association and published more books, this time focusing on his empathy with Mother Nature. In the mid-1930s Lee published "When the Buckwheat Blossoms," one of the most celebrated Korean short stories to date.
