The White Savages Group (Baek-man Heo) was founded in 1930 when Kim Yong-jun (1904–1967) published his manifesto “Upon Founding the White Savages Group” in a major Korean newspaper. Along with Kim Yong-jun, the White Savages Group was organized by Kil Jin-seop (1907–?), Ku Bon-ung (1906–1953), Lee Ma-dong (1906–1980), and Kim Ung-jin (1907–1977), all of whom were Western-style painters who had studied in Tokyo.
