Jin Kim ANS 301M Reaction Paper 3 Both characters in two short stories present a vision of Korean encounters with non- Koreans in circumstances related to colonialism, separation, war, and poverty. In Chôn Kwangyong’s “Kapitan Ri,” Dr. Yi, the main character, is portrayed as money-seeking and selfish Korean who betrays his own country and takes sides with countries in power, Japan in its imperial period and Russia after its reign over North Korea. The author’s perspective on Dr. Yi is a human being who abandons his nationality and race, minjok, for his own happiness and wealth. Dr. Yi takes side with Japan during its reign over Korea, takes side with Soviet Union when it takes over North Korea by performing a surgery on Stenkov’s wen on his left cheek. He is an opportunist who has no regard for patriotism and his race, just his own well-being.
