This writing is a study that inquires into a meaning of repatriate narrative, which had been the central agenda immediately after liberation. According to the collapse of the order in the Japanese Empire on August 15, 1945 and to the reshuffle of the order in East Asia, the issue of ''repatriation' in people who have been scattered all over East Asia so far emerged. A discourse surrounding 'repatriation', which was shown in Korea novels right after the liberation, is concentrated on building a new national state with clearing away shameful history, memory and experience dubbed colony. This writing examined the process that the imagined geography of colony/empire is reduced and reorganized as the boundary of a nation-state called 'South and North Korea.' At the same time, the aim was to clarify that the repatriate journey from Japan, Manchuria and China was precisely the proposal of being reborn as the entity of a new nation-state.
