The possibility of unlimited reinterpretation of Kim Soo-young’s texts is coming from amazing energy of confession and power of realistic penetration given to us by him. As much more, Kim’s poetry and prose are texts of confession which faithfully reveal his inner world and also sources of discourses in the history of poetry from 1950s to 1960s. Whenever unearthed, his texts became the topic of conversation and some of them provided very useful facts to newly illuminate his literature. New poems and proses introduced and interpreted in this paper are very valuable texts that could supplement mental landscape of Kim Soo-young in early and mid 1950s. Newly unearthed <For That> has much possibility of becoming important one among Kim Soo-young’s early poems. As much, it is a controversial work which allusively shows his inner side and poetic orientation of postwar period. Poor and difficult days of primitiveness, dullness and sadness that could be called as existential thirst were reflected in this poem. As one part of his youth, Newly unearthed prose <Love between Me and Actress of the Opera> shows empirical anecdote about Park Il-young, love story with Jang Seon-bang and culture of the period represented by the opera company. Through Kim Soo-young’s confession of prosaic tracks close to personal affairs, we could look into his youth and tragic memory. In this sense, above two newly unearthed texts are valuable and supplement Kim Soo-young’s existential scenes of the postwar period. Therefore, it is furthermore important to unearth new texts and expand the way of interpreting texts of great poets.
