    Wonchan Song | 2015, (27) | pp.1~19 | number of Cited : 4
    Abstract PDF
    This study explores modern appropriations of the popular Chinese classic,《Xiyouji(Journey to the West)》. Long before the term “culture contents” came intovogue, Chinese classics have been exploited for cultural archetypes or original sources. 《Xiyouji》 is an exemplary case, being used for a variety of performing fields includingpuppet shows, dramatic performances and animations. The source power of 《Xiyouji》transcends the national boundary as the novel attracts (re)creative forces in Korea,Japan and America. The paper adopts the framework of MSMU (Multi-Source Multi-USE) in its attemptto examine the nature of the source power of 《Xiyouji》. In doing so, the paper focuseson and utilizes the concepts of modernization, localization and contemporization. Roughlyspeaking, 《Xiyouji》’s appropriations in China tend to stress the continuity andinheritativenes with the original source whereas those in non-Chinese cultures tend tohighlight the reformulative aspects of their appropriations. Both local and internationalappropriations of 《Xiyouji》 are discussed with examples pertinent to the topic of thepaper.

    Abstract PDF
    This paper has its focus on examining two contemporary Chinese artists, Ai Weiweiand Huang Yongping, and the politics that is created by a discourse strategy in theworks of these two installation artists. The main focus of this essay are twofold. One is the materiality that is in theinstallation artwork itself. This indicates a one-time, space taking and planetary objectin the artwork. This kind of installation artwork that contains a planetary characteristicforms a discourse that uses a metaphor which does not indicate the reality directly. The other is the futility that is within the artwork. The phrase “No use for anything”indicates everyone aesthetically or economically, and the artwork that is visible to thenaked eye is made up of things that have nothing to do with political issues. Theseworks are made impossible to be a private artwork or goes through a list of a stunningvisualization and incredible size for the audience to experience a event-like nature. Thisis new form of knowledge network operation that does not become abandoned. Intensefeelings that the artwork gives does not directly contact with the physical materializationthat the artwork shows, but the message that the artwork gives is strongly performed. Therefore by a new discourse strategy that is created between Ai Weiwei and HuangYongping that contains the two natures above, the matter that is created by amaterialization and the abstraction that seems useless embodies into the political domain. In addition, the overall framework of this paper, so to speak, submitting invisibletestimonies and the theory that artworks can be made political through the materializingoperation was brought from Jacques Rancière.

    Oh Sojeong | 정성아 | 2015, (27) | pp.185~210 | number of Cited : 0
    Abstract PDF
    With the advent of new media there is growing concern about the interactivitybetween program producers and radio users. This study is about the transnationalinteraction of “internet C-Radio <OuXiangBenSe>,” a competitive medium of a newmedia era. <OuXiangBenSe>, a program which realizes the interactivity betweenproducers and users being attempted domestically for the first time, is considered to bea program with great potential of growth in broadcasting industry. This study firstlyseeks to understand the background of the program production and the organization &direction of program planning through the in-depth interview with the producer. Secondly, I tried to analyze in what ways communications between producers and users are occurring and whether there is a difference in understanding the program betweenproducers and users, through the message boards such as YouKuTuDou(优酷土豆),LaiWang(来往), WeiBo(微博). The findings of this study show that the gap ofunderstanding between the two groups is beginning to narrow, thus the<OuXiangBenSe> establishing itself as an interactive medium, not as aculture-conveying medium under the name of “Radio” - an active communicativemedium between producers and users. Consequently, <OuXiangBenSe> is likely to havea lot of implications in that the program is a real example of interactivity in the futurebroadcasting industry of new media distributed transnationally beyond the limit of theairwaves.

    Abstract PDF
    Mulan-its story and images- which was reproduced in popular novels in the latterpart of Chosun dynasty and Chung era reflected general cultural atmosphere of the ageand aspect of reaction of popular reading behavior, and was a pragmatic example toidentify the relation between readers and socio-cultural connection of literary work. Even though Mulan contained almost same motif, it was totally reproduced andchanged its internal symbolism after 18 century due to Korea and China cultural varietyand expansion of reader’s class. The text of Mulan story which was reproduced inChosun dynasty as an enlightening heroine and in Chung as a beauty or transcendentfemale fighter showed the readers of those days transferred to proactive participants ofreading activity and critical cultural authority, not as a passive recipient.

    Abstract PDF
    This article aims to introduce Chinese four main children literature awards andamong them to investigate the characteristics of the National Excellent Children’sLiterature Award(NECLA) which is the most prestigious award in the field of pureliterature. I examined the main ideology, judgement standard sets and winningprocedures of the NECLA and the problems it is faced with and also its solutions. Having the highest authority, the NECLA has influenced the characteristics of ChineseChildren’s literature in the past three decades. This triennial award keeps Chinesechildren literature diverse by holding onto the genres peculiar to Chinese childrenliterature, such as reportage, prose, fable and science fantasy, etc. Each time it tries to supplement and amend the judgement standard set and to increase not only the numberof judges but also the percentage of the judges from ethnic minorities, however, theenhancement of transparency and fairness should be more considered. The NECLAstrives to filter out themes which is not socialistic for Chinese children living in 2000sand seeks the strong and sincere children’s image untinged with commercialism.

    A Study on the Modernity of Wang Jingzhi's Poetry as a Lakeside Poet

    Woo Kwang Jung | 2015, (27) | pp.429~447 | number of Cited : 0
    Abstract PDF
    The purpose of this study is to revaluate Wang Jingzhi’s 汪靜之(1902-1996)representative love poems, especially focusing on his concern for the free, the romantic and the western style love. His love poetry, inspired by the tide of the May 4thMovement that asserted the ideological emancipation and anti-feudalistic society, brokeaway from the restraints of traditional custom between man and women and came toliterary prosperity. His poetry was one of the most effective means to head towardChinese modernity, since he found out Chinese equivalent for Western romantic loveaffairs and developed the private self with modern individual sensitiveness in his manytouching and brokenhearted love poems. This study also tries to find the distinctions of love poems between traditional andmodern society, and summarize the causes through the analysis of the aspects of twocultures, women social status, and different aesthetic tastes. Wang Jingzhi’s love poetryof the 1920s was based on the awareness of the relativism between subject(self) andobject(loving partner). At the same time, this poetry was characterized by its superbtendency to present sense impression of love affairs as well as experiencing sensualpoetic sentiment. Therefore, it wasn't until Wang Jingzhi's arrival that modern Chinesepoetry began in earnest to have the genre of love poem in its fullest sense.
