He died at the relatively young age of 48 in 1968, but his poetry has become a symbol of freedom and revolution during the democratization of Korea. His last poem, "Grass," only published after his death, has provoked particular critical attention and debate. Depending on the viewpoint of the literary figures and their political beliefs, the meaning and the value of Kim's poetry showed a great range of differing opinions."--Datz Press webpage.
