Kim Girim is generally acknowledged to be modernist. We can say, nevertheless, that sentimentality appeared on his early poem can be a indeterminate point. In this study, we have approached such a question through his historicity. Especially, in the social, contemporary historicity, Kim Girim has shown both sides of a modality.
First, in the view of Text, poems ‘The Sun’s Custom' and ‘The weather Chart' have the differences with the identity, the former for buried text, the latter for selected text by planning. In this relationship, he has find out sentimentality can be an important medium. Second, in the point of personal biography of Kim Girim, we have brought it to light to be showed both-sided, nature. In the relation to Kim Girim and his elder sister, the former for planned text, the latter for buried text. Such like these, Kim Girim’s personal biography and textual duplicity comprehend parallelism.
In the case of ‘The weather Chart’, it is a planned long-poem and can be said as a social phantasy of modern customs. Ideology of modernism is based on the sense of loss. Under his loss of a human essence, of a significant historical narrative, of communal relation, of social purpose, of private fulfilment through 'being in love', that's it the loss of private fulfilment. We have identified in poems ‘The weather Chart’ that this is head for the fantasy structure working on the poem. The traditional things denied by signifier like this have partly reintroduced by signified of the poem ‘The Sun's Custom’. These contradictor disjunction make Text of Kim Girim indicated the things of Modernism and that of Tradition. ‘The Sun’s Custom’ has kept a version of social phantasy based on modern ideology by connecting with 'The weather Chart', while there has existed another signified toward traditional sentimentality.
Conclusively, we can come to a conclusion ‘The weather Chart’ is the social fantasy composed of modern human-being narcissism, and ‘The Sun's Custom’ is the production of romantic ideology which ex-traditional custom has been permeated.
