Ri Munjang(李文長)wrote poems on oshies (押絵; patched rag-pictures on the screen) drawn by Kaiho Yusho, Kano Sanraku, Unkoku Togan, etc. (great painters in the Momoyama period). In order to make clear the date when each poem was written on each picture, his traces and backgrounds should be disclosed. He was captured by the armed forces of the Shimazu Clan at the time of the second invasion to Korea by Toyotomi Hideyoshi and was brought to Japan. After the short captured period in the Shimazu Clan, he was transported to the Osaka castle, the residence of Toyotomi Hideyori, son of Hideyoshi. There he played an important role in the cultural society which had a deep relation with the Toyotomi Clan and the chief leader of which was Emperor Goyozei (1571-1617). The ruin of the Toyotomis on the battle of Osaka-natsu-no-jin (1615) meant the lost of his patronage, so he wanted to go back home and arrived at Tsushima, the nearest island from Korea. But he had to stay there because of his acts and words he had already done in Japan. The sincere demands of So Yoshishige, the lord of that island, compelled him to stay there about ten years and to participate in the official affairs between Korea and Japan. His strong adhorrence to such works in the country, however, made him to go up to Kyoto at the first year of Kan'ei (1624) and to begin a cultural activity again in spite of his great age. According to my investigation, quite regrettably he died soon after that without returning to his native land.
