    A study on the magazine media of the Jeju Islanders in Japan after World WarⅡ -regional identity and locality of the Jeju Islanders in Japan-

    So, Myung-Sun | 2019, (81) | pp.5~25 | number of Cited : 1
    Abstract PDF
    This paper studies magazine media published by the Jeju Islanders in Japan after World War II, and considers the significance of their media activities along with a bibliography of the publications in Japan. The Jeju Provincial People’s Association, which is based in the Kanto and Kansai regions, has led the media activities of the Jeju Islanders in Japan. From the various types of the journal published by the Jeju Provincial People’s Association, I confirmed that they sought to maintain their identity as Jeju Islanders, deepen the unity and friendship among their members, and seek a path that would lead to the economic development of Jeju Island. On the other hand, in the group of Jeju Islanders in Japan, ther is a Tamra Study Group that was formed to pursue the history and culture of Jeju Island. "Tamra Communication Study" and "Jeju Island" published by Tamra Study Group are the magazines which transmit it toward the outside world unlike the Journal of the friendship organization. Especially in the case of "Jeju Island", the island’s locality was transmitted to Japanese society, and it functioned as translocal network through cooperation with Jeju Island. Their media activities have played a significant role in the process of preserving regional identity and forming locality in the Japan Society of Jeju Islanders. The media activity of the Jeju Islanders in Japan who are creating a unique locality against the historical tide of globalization is a special phenomenon unprecedented in the magazine media history of Zainichi Koreans.

    Zainichi magazine topography and Zainichi culture during 1960s-80s

    Lee seungjin | 2019, (81) | pp.27~53 | number of Cited : 1
    Abstract PDF
    The purpose of this article is to examine the full picture of a Zainichi magazine in Japan, published between 1960 and 1989, and to question its historical significance. In the 1960s, disputes over the return of businesses to North Korea and the normalization of diplomatic relations between South Korea and Japan were raised in the 1970s, with major issues related to social security and generational conflicts in the 1980s. In other words, the magazine, which began in the 1970s with a new direction amongst the rigid atmosphere led by organizations in Japan since the 1960s and the harmony of the left and right conflicts, in Zainichi society developed. This is a change that transcends the concepts of “ethnicity” and “one's native country” and reveals the basis for the existence of “resident Koreans.” The study demonstrated Zainichi’s true nature by presenting the topography of the journal during this period.

    The Use of Social Media for the Enhance of Student Conversational Skills -Focus on “Can-Do” Statements and an Additional Survey-

    Nishihana, Keiko | Matsushita,Yumiko | Sakamoto,Tadashi | 2019, (81) | pp.55~77 | number of Cited : 1
    Abstract PDF
    This paper addresses the improvement of oral proficiency in Korean learners of the Japanese language who engaged in interactions with Japanese native speakers based on the results of a survey. Twenty-two pairs of Japanese and Korean students interacted on social media through video- or voice-calls. Before and after these interactions, the Korean students were asked to fill out a survey using “Can-Do” Statements. The group of students who engaged in the social media interactions were then compared with a group of nonparticipant learners of Japanese, and no differences were found in Japanese language acquisition between the two groups in this one-and-a-half month study. However, the results of the survey demonstrate that the learners who engaged in the interaction were satisfied with the experience. Their comments included statements such as, “I feel that my conversational skills have improved,” “I feel more confident about how I use Japanese,” and “I understood the conversation better, because we used video-calls instead of text messages.” Six months later, an additional survey was conducted in Korean and the comments obtained from it were as follows: “I want to talk with more Japanese people,” “I have become conscious about grammar and words I have not learnt yet,” and “I started checking the dictionary more often.” The participants also indicated that managing interactions out of the classroom, the choice of the social media used, and matching conversation partners were potential ways to improve the social media experience.

    A Study of the Meaning of Sentence Ending “P-TARISITE” -Focusing on Epistemic Modality-

    youm miran | 2019, (81) | pp.79~97 | number of Cited : 0
    Abstract PDF
    We examined the meaning of “TARISITE”, which appears to be a combination of Japanese parallel particles “TARI” and “SITE”, we particularly focused on “P-TARISITE” which is used alone at the end of sentences. We made attempts to position it semantically based on the modality point of view. Prior research, has confirmed that there are some special meanings such as qualitative usage, joke usage, and virtual situations other than the original meaning of some enumerations and implications. In addition, the process of selecting one possibility out of several situations P₁P₂P₃... from a speech situation indicates that “KAMOSIRENAI” and “P-TARISITE” are similar, and based on the relationship between the speech situation and P₁P₂P₃..., speech intention is considered in detail. The result, indicated that “P-TARISITE” is a possibility judgment that represents the possibility of extreme cases, and that “P-TARISITE” in joke usage can be considered an expression strategically used by the speaker for the same possibility judgment. In addition, we considered the composition of “P-TARISITE”, independence of grammatical form, connection relation with question/negative statement/polite form, sentence end expression, lexical expression, relaxed expression of predication, modality, and semantically extreme examples. Thus, “P-TARISITE” can be considered a from of epistemic modality that can not take the form of question, denial, or politeness in terms of formality.

    A Study on the Standardization of Foreign Words -The Recent and Widespread Appropriation of Foreign Words-

    Soo-Moon Oh | 2019, (81) | pp.99~115 | number of Cited : 0
    Abstract PDF
    This study attempts to analyze the characteristics of foreign, non-Japanese words that have been converted into Japanese as Katakana. The recent increase of Katakana in Japan is remarkable, and the prevalence of sentences that are difficult to understand is surging. From political speeches to book-length publications, Katakana can be found everywhere, and it has become very unlikely to encounter text without Katakana. Such a phenomenon can be said to be a natural result of today's increasingly globalized world, but because the rate of globalization is so fast, there are people who cannot keep up with its effects, especially the elderly. Therefore, in this study we examine how katakana is created, how it is used, and its directionality, and we will also attempt to identify the traits of a desirable form of Katakana that can be accepted by a wide range of generations.

    Combining Prior Learning in Japanese Literature Classes with Flipped Learning -Classification of prior learning materials-

    Yoon, Yoo-Chan | 2019, (81) | pp.117~131 | number of Cited : 1
    Abstract PDF
    In this study a new teaching method of Japanese literature education, flipped learning, is examined, as one of the great flow of education field. To create an ideal flipped learning classroom, it is necessary to induce proper interaction between prior learning outside the classroom and within the classroom, it begins by providing appropriate prior learning. The study aimed to introduce various existing forms of prior learning so that they can be selected according to the needs or circumstances of learners. Prior learning makes it easy to think of a video taken by a professor, but it does not have to be a video, it provides a learning goal linked to this class, andensures that it is thoroughly prior learning. In addition to the development-type prior learning materials written individually by professors, there are shared prior learning materials, such as OER, KMOOC, and KOCW, however, there is a definite lack of prior learning materials related to Japanese literature. Furthermore, as a material of practical prior learning, the class plan was presented as an example of flipped learning, athough it was insufficient.

    A Study on the Transcriptions of the Vowel Component in Japanese Language Primers of Korea’s enlightenment period

    HWANG WOON | 2019, (81) | pp.133~147 | number of Cited : 0
    Abstract PDF
    The present study analyzed the Korean language transcriptions of vowel components in Japanese language primers during Korea’s enlightenment period and examined the patterns of transcriptions in Japanese language primers. The results confirmed that it was often the case that “normative transcriptions” did not match “practical transcriptions” in Japanese language primers during Korea’s enlightenment period, and it seems that vowel components may have been transcribed not from letters but directly from phonetic sounds. Additionally, the authors of Japanese language primers during Korea’s enlightenment period seem to have recognized affrication in Korean; thus, they likely had a certain level of linguistic knowledge.

    The Culture and Book Brokerage of Commercial Books in the Edo Period -Production, Distribution, and Consumption of Kashihon by Kashihonya-

    KIM Harksoon | 2019, (81) | pp.149~166 | number of Cited : 2
    Abstract PDF
    The development of the Japanese commodity distribution economy, which centered on Kashimonoya (the middle and late Edo period), made a substantial difference in book publishing and distribution. Kashihon, one of the miscellaneous goods handled during Kashimonoya, will be responsible for the production, distribution, and consumption of books centered on Honya due to the development of the original print, the increase of the number of tables, and the expansion of the reader base, including female readers. In addition, Kashihonya was able to grasp their needs and interests because it was a structure that visited the readers directly and distributed the books. This is why Kashihonya was in charge of publishing in the latter part of the Edo period and was able to publish and distribute bestsellers. As such, Kashihonya played a big role in the distribution and consumption of popular culture in the mid-to-late Edo period, and its traditions continued until the early Japanese modern era. This method of consuming goods (as a rental system) can still be seen in cases of household appliances, music, and videos. In addition, these rental books and book brokerage awards demonstrate the consumption patterns of universal books that have occurred in Korea, China, Japan, and East Asia as well as in Europe. However, in the Edo period of Japan, many pieces of literature intended for entertainment were published with broad-ranging categories, from annals to spring editions. Late Edo Kashihon brought books, products, medicines, and so on together, and its commercial character became more solid and played the same role as the current popular magazine.

    A Study on the Type and Characteristics of Bride in the Japanese Heterogeneous Marriage Stories

    Song Young Sook | 2019, (81) | pp.167~187 | number of Cited : 0
    Abstract PDF
    This study was to investigate the heterogeneous bride and its characteristics, focused on <snake bride>, <fox bride> and <crane bride> as narrative structure to flourish the descendants or create wealth after the marriage with the human male by the animal as heterogeneity which has turned into female. For the characteristics of heterogeneous marriage stories about bride, it may be summed up as follows. First, the world of mortals has faced the changes to create the descendants' prosperity and wealth through the gratitude of heterogeneous bride, and this study was to analyze it by using the principle of equivalent change. Besides, there arose radical change spreading to the world of mortals. Second, the 'increase in descendant and wealth' derived by the marriage for the male in the world of mortals and the female in the heterogeneous world can be seen as result reflecting the meaning of male-centered marriage in the traditional society. Third, the heterogeneous marriage stories about bride can be seen as combination between the experience by the ancient people who have repeated the contact with the 'heterogeneous world' and the mythical elements like 'birth of hero' through 'taboo' motif.

    Literature of Korean Residents in Japan: An Analysis of Chosen Jiho

    Oh, Eun-Young | 2019, (81) | pp.189~209 | number of Cited : 1
    Abstract PDF
    Choson Chongryon is a bulletin of Choson Chongryon which has been published since December 1956. It is a Japanese edition whose objective is to convey accurate information about Korea to the Japanese and to promote goodwill between Japan and Korea. The title changed to “Chosen Jiho” in January 1961, and the content also changed given the changing situation of North Korea and South Korea. Choson Sinbo(a bulletin of Chongron), although irregularly, serializes novels. In contrast, Choson Jiho publishes many poems. Examining Heo Namgi’s poems, the themes differ from poems in Choson Chongryon and those in Choson Jiho. While his poems in Choson Chongryon are concerned with Korean residents in Japan and those returning to North Korea, those in Choson Jiho are about his home country, based on his experience in Choson Chongryon. Lee Geumok’s poems changed from descriptions of children going to Chousengakkou to emphasizing maternity while encouraging gender equality. Two original novels are published in Choson Chongryon, and both are not written from the perspective of Choson Chongryon. Instead, they describe Korean residents in Japan. In general, Choson Jiho has less original works and more articles about the Japanese than Choson Sinbo. As noted in the first issue, it is because Choson Sinbo emphasizes promoting goodwill between Japan and Korea, and also because Korean creative writing was encouraged in Choson Sinbo.

    A study of “repay the favor” in Namiya Zakkaten no Kiseki

    Yun Hye Young | 2019, (81) | pp.211~225 | number of Cited : 2
    Abstract PDF
    In this study, we considered the novel Namiya Zakkaten no kiseki using the key words “repay the favor.” Those who use the words “repay the favor” in Namiya Zakkaten no kiseki sent three young men a letter of consultation. They try to “repay the favor” to their lovers, others, distant relatives, and consultants, conveying a debt. This contrasts with those who consulted the elderly Namiya with grace from their parents. Those who consulted with the young men forgive “repay the favor.” However, as is evident from the words of Harumi, “I want to save many people from now on,” “repay the favor” develops into “giving grace.” People who seem to have no connection with each other are connected to a child care facility called “Kankouen.” Where the background of the “Kankouen” is described, we can see the word “return.” It is not an exaggeration to say that this work belongs to a genealogy of social mystery novels in disaster literature. It is said that it illuminates “repay the favor” which is a concept that has supported modern, human ties in “the innocent era” in which disasters and human connections are fading. Thus “repay the favor,” which began from the personal dimension, is extended to “giving grace” and to the social “return.”

    Tanaka Komimasa and the Korean war -focusing on Landing-

    Lee, Moon-Ho | 2019, (81) | pp.227~250 | number of Cited : 0
    Abstract PDF
    This study reviews the position and meaning of the Korean War in the literature of Tanaka Komimasa. Before the outbreak of the Korean War, Tanaka was stationed on the Chinese war front as a railway guard. He never faced any major battles, but witnessed many deaths and suffered from a contagious disease. When the Korean War began in 1950, he began working at Camp Yokota. Japan had been swept into the Cold War by the United States occupancy and Tanaka witnessed the progression of the Korean War within the U.S. military. The Korean War liberated Japan from hunger and poverty prevailing through the pre-war era. In Landing, published in 1957, Tanaka intended to scrutinize the convergence of post-war Japan and the Korean War. He encountered the demise of many core values of post-war democracy with the outbreak of the War - namely pacifism, national sovereignty and basic human rights. In the novel, the protagonist is shipped to Korea during war time on a boat carrying U.S. tanks. As he internalizes post-war democratic values, he escapes at Moji. This irony of the protagonist landing in Moji, Kita-Kyushu instead of Korea, is Tanaka’s attempt to restore lost humanism. Landing, thus, shows the importance of the underappreciated Korean War among Tanaka’s war novels

    Murata Sayaka's “Convenience Store Woman” - Furikuras <Lack> and <Growth> -

    Lee, Ji-Suk | 2019, (81) | pp.251~267 | number of Cited : 0
    Abstract PDF
    Murata Sayaka's “Convenience Store Woman” was awarded the 155th Akutagawa Ryunosuke Prize in 2016.The author, Sayaka Murata, 37, wrote for the first time a novel based on her part-time experience while working at a convenience store in parallel with her writing career. The main character, Keiko Furikura, has been working part-time at a convenience store for 18 years and is a 36-year-old unmarried woman who has never been familiar with men since childhood. Only when she works at a convenience store according to the manual, she feels relieved that it has become a "normal part of everyday life". The story unfolds as a man who aims to get married enters as a new part-timer at the convenience store. In this article, I focus on Furikura and tried to discuss the expansion of her lifestyle from the aspects of <lack> and <growth>. Furthermore, I discussed the views on marriage in Furikura from the perspective of <the Marriage as institution>. Women's unique way of living is often seen in the works of women writers. As the way women live their lives, such as women continue to work and marriage, it is a work that reflects the agony of the writer's own work.

    A Study on the Linkage between Five Strange Tales From Tokyo and Commitment -The Commitment Methodology via the aspect of “The Married”-

    Lee, Hye-In | 2019, (81) | pp.269~288 | number of Cited : 0
    Abstract PDF
    In this paper, three main types of characters(housewives in shopping centers, middle-aged men who are considered missing, and women who have lost their names) from Five Strange Tales From Tokyo are examined in relation to their problems. On the surface, they are living usual lives, but within themselves they carry troubles that they cannot share even with their family members, with whom they are most familiar. In addition, their endings share a common feature in that they return to their original realities, without outwardly expressing that they have overcome their own problems or created a new life for themselves. Therefore, this work has been regarded as having little relevance to the concept of “commitment,” which is an important aspect in Murakami Haruki’s work, and did not attract attention. However, the portrayals of three ordinary people appearing as main characters in this work actually act as a mirror for the readers: They are “me”, my “family”, and our “neighbors”. Since the ‘Tokyo subway sarin attack,’ which occurred in 1995, the author has noticed that all the ordinary people around him have their own stories. In particular, the inclusion of married people, who have not been a part of Haruki’s works for a long time, shows that the author’s vision has expanded to consider not only young single men in their 20s and 30s but also various people of different ages. This reflects the author’s desire to create a story that has the power to move the world by collecting small stories of various individuals. Therefore, this piece should be re-evaluated, as the work of Five Strange Tales From Tokyo is not only an interesting and bizarre story collection but also a representation of the transition that is seen in Haruki’s pursuit of commitment.

    Post-war high growth and machinability for building main agents of Japanese Korean -Focusing on 『Blood of Others』 by Yoshio Shirasaka-

    Lim, Sang-Min | 2019, (81) | pp.289~310 | number of Cited : 0
    Abstract PDF
    This paper studied symbols of others among Korean residents in Japan by a Japanese writer. The book 『Blood of Others』, a story based on the Jinwu Lee Affair (a murder case of a female Japanese high school student) in 1958, was considered. This was compared to 『Memorial services without priests』 by Seokbeom Kim, which was based on the same affair. How crimes of Korean residents in Japan were described in the post-war literary world in the 1960s was analyzed. This study found the following: Regarding 『Memorial services without priests』 by Kim, the end of asymmetric relationships which were not constructed outside via Japanese people as the attackers were described as defeats of the Korean residents in Japan. On the contrary, in 『Blood of Others』, the end of Japanes unilateral “good will” in saving lives was described as a Japanes defeat. This paper explored the process by which Japanes national identity and the agency of Korean residents in Japan were commutatively processed in the relationship between Korea and Japan. This changed fluidly in the Cold War era while Japan's national identity was rebuilt and the agency of Korean residents in Japan was constructed.

    Representation of the intellectual in Kim Seok-Beom's “Hwasando” - Focusing on the protagonist ‘Lee Bang Geun’ -

    LIM SUNG TAEK | 2019, (81) | pp.311~324 | number of Cited : 0
    Abstract PDF
    The following is the representation of the intellectual in the “Hwasando” First, The characteristics of ‘Lee Sang Geun’ which are seen in "Death of the Raven" are similar to those of ‘Lee Bang Geun’, who appears in “Hwasando” and ‘Lee Bang Geun’ is based on ‘Lee Sang Geun’ to increase the width of the narrative. Therefore, 'Lee Sang Geun' is the original source of 'Lee Bang Geun'. Secondly, Lee Bang Geun is in a position of observer when the beginning of Jeju 4.3 due to the turn of idealogy. He expressed the conflict and anguish of the intellectuals living in the era of chaos after liberation. Third, the appearance of Lee Bang Geun, who desperately tries to face the defeat of the armed uprising and rescues the people of Jeju, and throws himself in the end, is a good example of practical intellectuals. After he settled in Japan, he discarded the left wing of the ideology and wandered away from his life. He tried to make atonement through the fan of the intellectuals who had no role in history. It also reminds us of the role of intellectuals who live in the present age by rescuing the people of Jeju due to their cool judgment and executive power.

    "A Woman" theory -A Study on the Relationship between Yoko and Kurachi-

    Jung, Ug-Sung | 2019, (81) | pp.325~340 | number of Cited : 0
    Abstract PDF
    "A certain woman" is a work depicting the process of the hero Yoko's ruin.In particular, the second part of "A certain woman" exclusively describes the ruin of Yoko. I think that is why, but there are many indications that "a certain woman" is a ruined story. The cause of Yoko's ruin in this work is that he fell in love with the seaman, an unexpected Kurachi, to Yoko, who was on a ship bound for America, towards Kimura, who is his fiancee.In the ship, the two become an undesirable relationship, and Yoko returns to Japan with Kurauchi as it is without stepping on the ground in the United States. This article discusses the love that arose between Yoko, who was also the cause of the destruction, and the love, with a focus on that love. Why is Yoko not with Kimura, but with Kurachi? What happened in a ship bound for America is discussed in this paper. Then, in order to find out the cause, I started with Kurachi, the character of the work, and focused on Mrs. Tagawa and Oka. From the point of view through this paper, it appears that Mrs. Tagawa and Oka have an excessive influence in progressing to an unfavorable relationship between Yoko and Kurachi. And he discussed through this paper what sort of attraction Yoko was attracted to, and what attraction he saw in Kura.

    A study on the perception of the other world for Japanese in the modern age as shown in “Syokoku Hyakumonogatari”

    Choi, Ga-Jin | 2019, (81) | pp.341~359 | number of Cited : 0
    Abstract PDF
    This study of the pioneering work of ghost stories of modern Hyakumonogatari investigates one side of the perception of the other world for modern Japanese by examining the time and space of such described worlds, the Yokai's which belong to the other world, and contacts between humans and the other. Fifty-five of 100 ghost stories contained in “Syokoku Hyakumonogatari” are examined in this article. Consequently, the percept ion of the other world shown in “Syokoku Hyakumonogatari” may be summarized as follows. First, the other world was considered a boundary of time and space according to traditional Japanese folklore. Second, this study found that Yokai were conceived as being human-like or, more accurately, female. Third, this study has shown that mutual visits between worlds were conceived as being possible, not simply one-sided. Fourth, the human world was considered to be the place of confrontation between the mortal and the spirit plane. In conclusion, these tales overwhelmingly recognized that contacts between the mortal and spiritual plane had a mostly negative effect on humans.

    A Study of Noh Syakkyou

    Hyeon wook Kim | 2019, (81) | pp.361~377 | number of Cited : 0
    Abstract PDF
    Noh “Syakkyou” is a work with strong “Syugensei”. There are many songs with strong congratulatory natures including “Waki Noh”, which was created by Zeami. In “Syugen Nho”, God is the main character. However, Noh “Syakkyou” is made in the middle of Muromachi, and God is not the main character. “Shishi”, the messenger of God, appears as “Nochizite”. “Syakkyou” is often staged in the form of “Han-Nho”. Originally, “Syugen Nho” was performed in “Han-Nho”. At the end of “Syakkyou”, “Shishi” appears and dances the “Shishi dance”. “Syugensei” are included in the “Shishi dance” section. He praises the king's power while dancing the “Shishi-dance”. In addition, he prays that the happy hours will last for a long time. Originally, At the shrine's festival location, the “Shishi-dance” was a dance performed to defeat the devil. Noh was influenced by the “Shishi-dance” when it was performed at the shrine's festival site. In Noh, “Shishi” has red hair and appears using a “Shishi” face because it was directly influenced by the festival. At the festival, “Shishi” is played by two or more people. However, in Noh, one person plays the role of one “Shishi”. There are few cases where one person becomes a “Shishi”, and it can be said that this is a unique effect created by Noh. On the other hand, "Mochizuki" also exists in the Noh where “Shishi” appears. In "Mochizuki", people dance by replicating “Shishi”, but in “Syakkyou”, there is the difference in that the “Shishi” itself dances. Thus, compared to "Mochizuki", “Syakkyou”'s “Shishi” dance is more realistic and dynamic.

    Study on Spoon Culture from the Perspective of the “Ruizyuzatsuyosyou” -Focusing on Spoons as Eating Utensils-

    Do, Kee-Hong | 2019, (81) | pp.379~393 | number of Cited : 1
    Abstract PDF
    “Ruizyuzatsuyosyou” is a Yusokukozitsu of the Heian period that allows one to understand the specific appearance of the Daikyo table menu, seat arrangement, and the Chyodo of Daikyo because it contains Sashizu, which is a drawing created using only lines, along with textual records. This study focused on the “spoon” technique of “Ruizyuzatsuyosyo” to understand spoon culture in the Heian period. Consequently, the study elucidated the position of spoon culture as follows. First, the study found that spoons were used when people mixed rice with soup. Accordingly, the study concludes that this is an important piece of evidence to consider the eating styles of the Japanese. Second, this study proposes an interpretation of the significance of setting “Sonzya” during a ritual named Daikyo through the “Sonzyanousikai” dining table. Third, This study concludes that information on the appearance and dimension of the spoon from the “Ruizyuzatsuyosyou” is valuable data to include in the cultural history of the spoon that links “Engisiki” and “Tyujiruiki.”

    Self-identity of third generation Zainichis from the viewpoint of the movie “Blue~CHONG~”

    Park, Dong-Ho | 2019, (81) | pp.395~411 | number of Cited : 0
    Abstract PDF
    This study reviewed the self-identity of third generation Zainichis through the movie “Blue~CHONG~”, which was produced by Lee, Sang-Il, a third generation Zainichi, as part of his graduation work at the Japan Institute of the Moving Image. This movie has been highly regarded as realistically representing the ambiguous and complex issue of self-identity among third generation Zainichis through the life of Joseon school students. This is distinct from other movies portraying the agonies of the Zainichis, an ethnic minority. However, this movie has not gained popularity among the public as it is an independent film. Third generation Zainichis are more closely connected with the Japanese society than their former generations. I studied how they perceive the “Nation” and how they define themselves to develop self-identities. This work helps understand third generation Zainichis with a perspective different from text images produced by the Korean’s position, while also working as reminder of the third generation Zainichi’s self-identity issue which has not come to the fore.

    A Study on Mishina Shoei's “Nihonshoki Chousen Kankei Kiji Koshou”

    Park Mi-Kyong | 2019, (81) | pp.413~432 | number of Cited : 0
    Abstract PDF
    The purpose of this thesis is to analyze Mishina Shoei's “Research about the related to Chousen in Nihonshoki.” The core idea of his research connects Korean ancient history and the ancient history of Korea-Japan relations. At the conclusion, the thesis states that additional researches should be conducted. Thi is because, even though Mishina’s "Research about the record related Chousen in Nihonshoki" appears to suggest that his observations on “Nihonshyoki” are objective and analytical, there is an ambiguity behind Mishina’s standard of judgment within the context of “Nihonshoki” as it is impossible to identify whether it is fabrication or historical fact. Additionally, the thesis indicates that the conventional research commentaries on Korean articles regarding “Nihonshyoki” highlight the issue of authenticity in historical facts instead of errors made in the compilation process.

    The policy concerning live broadcasts of Japanese popular songs at the Kanto-Dalian Broadcasting Station in the early Showa era (1932-1933)

    Liu, Run | 2019, (81) | pp.433~458 | number of Cited : 0
    Abstract PDF
    The purpose of this study is to clarify context and policy regarding the live broadcasting of Japanese popular songs at the Kanto-Dalian Broadcasting Station, which was under Japanese rule in the pre-war, early Showa period of 1932-1933. It can be said that the broadcast policy of Japanese popular songs in 1932-1933 was formed in an experimental period that adjusted the policy of the“small broadcast period”and had a role in affecting the policy of the“mass broadcast period”thereafter. The elucidation of broadcasting policy and the social factors of the time are of significance in the clarification of the “overall policy” of the pre-war Dalian Broadcasting Station. In this research, we consider the context in which the policy on popular songs broadcasted by Kanto-Dalian Broadcasting Station was formed. The analysis of data such as broadcast times and the contents of the broadcast program tables published in the radio section of the Manchuria Daily newspaper, published in Manchuria in the 1932-1933 period, clarifies the above. Through an analysis of the audience constituents in Dalian Japanese society, we identify the social factors that formed this policy.

    Abstract PDF
    [Tokyo Love Story] and [Tokyo Sentimental] are broadcast 25 years different from the times. However, these dramas appeal to viewers of the same generation in Japan who are currently in their mid-50s. [Tokyo Love Story] and [Tokyo Sentimental] are lovestories of an immigrant and Tokyo native, respectively. Although Tokyo is a city of fashion, the aesthetics of the Edo period are also appealing as a coexisting stable space. To convey this to viewers, in the dramas, Tokyo is clearly shown through pan focusing. [Tokyo Sentimental] is an “urban love story” that emphasizes not only contents but also information about urban space. Takujo, the protagonist, enjoys the aesthetics of Edo and the sophistication of modern Tokyo at the same time. The aesthetics of Tokyo Shitamachi through Takuzo lead to the culture of “New-tro,” which is currently popular in Korea. Therefore, the technique of introducing the urban love story and the stylish Tokyo culture of Takujo, attempted in [Tokyo Sentimental], could be considered an effective way for promoting the urban cultural contents of Seoul.

    Abstract PDF
    This study examined the aptitude of educational material in "Zen-itsu Dojin", written by AMENOMORI, Hoshu. We analyzed two aspects: the concrete meaning of "Cultivate the Mind (「其心をやしな」う)", and the holistic contents of "Zen-itsu Dojin". The results are as follows. The concrete meaning of "Cultivate the Mind (「其心をやしな」う)" is training officers for Korean-Japanese translation by familiarizing them with Confucian morals; they must understand the difference in contents of Confucian morals in Chinese books and the Japanese people's comprehension; "Zen-itsu Dojin" was written for this purpose. The reason for selecting "Quan cheng gushi(勧懲故事)", created during Ming dynasty, as the source book of "Zen-itsu Dojin", and not "Haengshil-do" series of book for indoctrination(行実図系教化書), created during Joseon Dynasty, was to capture students' interest. This evinces that Korea and Japan differ greatly in the cultural dimension regarding Confucianism.
