Urbanization, which was started from 19th century, has been rapidly continuing in fast and complex form till today. Literature has yet started to take notice of the essential urban problem, when facing the fierce urbanizing trend in life, and investigated the impact on human life and the value, etc. of urbanization. In general, all aspects in daily life can be seen in the growing influence of capitalism. In the specific historical stage that nation strongly intervene the civil society, urbanization and urban space inevitably follows intense political domination. Taking Japan colonial period as an instance, the formation and development of modern cities in Taiwan and Korea are more or less influenced by Japanese colonial policies, such as the importation and the following expansion of colonial capitalism caused the problem of disunion of social classes and ethnic differences. The political issue was more direct and severe than any other historical stages hereafter. This article is based on the Taiwanese novel Tsai, Chiu-Tung’s（蔡秋桐）〈An Emerging Sadness（新興的悲哀）〉 and Korean novel Chae, Man-Sik’s（蔡萬植） 《A muddy Stream（濁流）》 in Japan colonial period. The novels had investigated the construction process of emerging colonial city, structural characteristics of urban space, and the lifestyle and spiritual awareness of people in the Japanese colony. Both Taiwan and Korea two nations were governed by Japanese colonialism, and promoted the construction of colonial cities under the domination of Japan. Therefore, by selection of two urban novels that had commonly discussed the colonial city constructed by Japanese colonialism, to analyze the contrast between the two nations of relationship of colonial city and lifestyle of the people, becomes necessary and profoundly significant.
