The purpose of this paper is to investigate literary-educational aspects of North Korean lyric poetry. Writing lyric poems has been the major trend in North Korean literature since 1980s. This is why new social environment has been forrned in North Korean society since 1980s. In contrast to former times, the atmosphere of North Korean society was being changed by the break of socialist economy caused by the crisis of rural economy, social disturbance, and a sense of fatigue to unitary system of `JuChe` and so on. Under these circumstances, Kim Jung-I11 came on the political stage, and took charge of literary policy. Therefore, converting realistic social atmosphere and reorganizing people s senses for new age were an important problem to Kim Jung-Ill. In this tendency of the times, lyric poetry was compused as an important literary education. In North Korean literature, the literary function of lyric poetry placed the focus on the matters as follows. First, establishing the identity of North Korean regime as well as national identity by stressing national affinity, Second, bringing about social atmosphere by sublimating mode of living, Third, improving socialistic productivity through the lyric vitality of the inner life. The problem of lyricism needed for dealing successfully with schematization, inclination toward prose, similarity, idealization in writing poetry was an issue in North Korean poetry. These various problems in North Korean poetry turned the course to the new du-ection according to the needs of the times and so on. In conclusion, I think literary-educational function of North Korean poetry will serve as a momentum of considering new aspects of North Korean poetry.
