Currently in our country’s criminal law system, interpretation methods are mainly focused around formalism and realism. The two methodologies originated from German and Japanese criminal law systems, but showed new features in content and scope in our country’s criminal law discussions. The writer interprets the original focus of legal formalism and legal realism and their development in our academic circle of criminal law system, in the hope that reasonable choices may be made in criminal law interpretation.
