    The Dilemma of the Chinese Foreign Cultural Policy Through the ‘限韓令(a government ban on Hallyu)’

    Kwon Ki Young | 2017, (37) | pp.29~54 | number of Cited : 16
    Abstract PDF
    In 2016, when the South Korean government made a decision on the placement of the THAAD missiles, the Chinese government immediately took corrective action, which was mainly centered on sanctions on hallyu, which is called the ‘限韓令(a government ban on Hallyu)’. The reason for the ‘限韓令’ is that it is exploiting ‘culture’ as a means of international politics. The thesis is aimed at critically reviewing the effectiveness of the ‘限韓令’ in the two major aspects of the foreign cultural policy, namely, ‘Cultural Security and Soft Power’ pursued by the Chinese government in the 21st century. In terms of cultural security, ‘限韓令’ seems to have failed to gain a significant effect. In terms of the ideological aspects of cultural security, in terms of cultural identity, ‘限韓令’ has been an effective policy tool. Through official or informal channels, Hallyu contents continued to circulate throughout China. Chinese’s interest in hallyu also showed little difference compared to the mere past. Also, the economic aspect of the content industry is not too big for the overall economic aspect of the economy. On the other hand, in the soft power aspect of the Chinese foreign policy keynote, Especially in terms of improving the nation’s image, only the ‘限韓令’ has led to the worst results. Regarding the future of Korea and China relations in the future, Far too many Koreans have begun to regard China as a rival or threat rather than a partner. Far too many Koreans chose America rather than China as a more important country in the future. However, the result was a completely contrary situation just a year ago. It seems that China’s foreign policy, which was viewed through only ‘限韓令’ is facing a curious dilemma. The Chinese government still recognizes ‘culture’ in terms of direct national interests, The Chinese government aggressively pushes ahead with inroads into Chinese culture, while imposing sanctions on foreign cultures. The Chinese government’s foreign policy can be recognized as another ‘hegemony’ in the international community.

    The Study on Zhou Xing Chi’s ‘The Mermaid’ from the Point of View of Fairy-tale Fantasy

    SONG YUNOK | 2017, (37) | pp.77~102 | number of Cited : 5
    Abstract PDF
    Attempting to contact the Real, the Fantasy creates a stir in the value system that we take for granted. Andersen sought for solution to overcome the limitations of European society in the 19th century by opening the fairy-tale fantasy of yearning for new species or living things. Hoping for individual salvation and eternal return, he created the fairy-tales appealing for universal truth. Andersen’s mermaid has represented all the other mermaids in Western society because it is attractive and appealing enough to overwhelm the pre-existed images of mermaid in Western myths and folk tales. Afterward, ‘The little mermaid’ has been transferred and transformed in more polished and realistic ways by the aid of imaging technology. ‘The little mermaid’ was restructured as Zhou Xing Chi’s 『The Mermaid』 in post-Socialism. 『The Mermaid』 shows the image of China’s traditional mermaid in Chinese myth and literature, reveals the crack and absurdity of Post-Socialism by means of Zhou Xing Chi‘s cinematic skills, and deconstruct the existing authority and order. At the same time, the universal messages such as ‘pure love and environmental protection’ exempted the movie from government censorship and the age limit. Zhou Xing Chi’s fairy-tale-like movies have ambivalence in cultural topography of Post-socialism: resisting ideological fantasies and accepting mainstream consciousness. 21st century rules the area of unconsciousness and requires fairy-tale fantasy more. The Fourth Industrial Revolution all over the world and Cultural Hybridity caused by globalization expand the perception of ecology and deglobalization. judging from this, open viewpoint with fairy-tale fantasy will be more essential. New interpretations and transformations of ‘The little mermaid’ are looked forward to.

As a result, these description stems from a sense of pride that literati hold deep in their hearts. They were enjoying to the female impersonators. Therefore, female actors have more feminine characteristics and conform to the taste of society. These passive female impersonators are also related to the absence of female characters in the novel, so Chensen will be his ideal female image of an female impersonators. He also admits that the female impersonators are a humble occupation. So at the end of the story, the ideal female impersonators get away from their job, and regains the identity of the male.
