Tal-su Kim (Kim, Tal-su / Kim Darus 1920-1997) was a writer who continued to ask what human beings are and what they should be through his works, centered on his experience as a Korean in Japan. Born in Gyeongsangnam-do, Korea under the annexation of Japan and Korea, Kim Tal-su, who moved to Japan at the age of 10, aspired to literature while helping poor families, and announced "Genkai Nada" and "Taebaek Mountains" after the war. Active as a pioneer of Korean writers in Japan. He is also a writer closely related to Kanagawa, who lived in Yokosuka for about 10 years during and after the war. In the latter half of my life, I pursued the relationship between Korea and Japan dating back to ancient times, and brought it to fruition in my life work, "Korean culture in Japan."

The Kanagawa Museum of Modern Literature donated the Tal-su Kim materials in 2003 (Heisei 15) and has preserved them as the "Tal-su Kim Library". With the 100th anniversary of the birth of Tal-su Kim in 2020 (Reiwa 2), we will introduce his life and works that sought mutual understanding between Japanese and Koreans, focusing on the materials of "Tal-su Kim Bunko".
