The development of literature has its own laws and is restricted by political factors. It is necessary to compare and analyze modern Chinese and Korean literary concepts. Modern literature contains the thoughts of contemporary society, which is a reflection of society. Therefore, the purpose of this article to study the concept structure of China and South Korea in modern literature is to explore the differences and similarities in cultural concepts between China and South Korea, and to further understand the development path between China and South Korea. To this end, this article adopts a questionnaire survey to survey the representatives of Chinese and Korean students, compare their recognized ideas of China and South Korea, and get the results. The survey results show that more than 50% of students and netizens agree with the conceptual differences in modern Chinese and Korean literature. This shows that literary works are closely related to the times and society, and literary works reflect the needs and changes of the times.
