This study investigated the family configuration appeared in Zhang Ai Ling's 『Half Life Fate(半生緣)』. As a psychological foundation of a person in individual aspect, the family is a community composed of blood relation and is continuously expanded into the metaphor for society. When looking at the socialization phenomenon of family, family narrative was important to review the ideological foundation that supported the then society.Zhang Ai Ling attempted to reveal the other side of the familythat has existed as absolute value through family narrative and the consciousness of the writer has been expanded based on the family. The family in 『Half Life Fate(半生緣)』 became an absolute guiding post to individuals and the very place of suppression and restrictions and the individuals showed the phenomenon of escaping from the houseand of creating a new family in the baptism of familism. As such, Zhang Ai Ling felt the familism that simply emphasized suppression, regulations and continuance threatening through family narrative in 『Half Life Fate(半生緣)』 and warned with care that it would destroy the meaning of original sacred meaning of family.The recomposition of appropriate family signified the restoration of the damaged relationship and this process started from the worries about how the group of family could be in harmony with its individuals. In this regard, Zhang Ai Ling negated the compromise with irregular realities by staying away from the realities, not by restoring it rapidly.
