Isang Yun was born in Duksan, in Korea, in 1917, and became one of the leading Korean composers in Germany in the twentieth-century. IsangYun’s Music is frequently performed throughout the world even after his death. His name as a composer was recognized as a mediator of East Asian and Western musical traditions.

This thesis will discuss his involvement in political issues during the Japanese occupation in Korea in addition to the background of his controversial extreme penalty and the strong support he received from the North Korean government after his release. The discussion will also include the reconciliation between Isang Yun post humously and the recent Korean government in the 1990s.

In addition, this thesis will include the background of his deep love for cello and some of his prominent cello works.
