    Akkŭk Meets Hollywood - The Problems of Colonial Legacy and Post-colonial Modernity in 1950’s South Korean Popular Films

    Chung-kang Kim | 2013, (29) | pp.35~72 | number of Cited : 5
    Abstract PDF
    This paper focuses on the problems of colonial legacy and post-colonial modernity in South Korean popular film in the process of making “national film” in post-colonial South Korea. The nation-building was not only a political process but also a process which is much involved with people’s emotions and imagination. Popular films in South Korea took great importance in visually imagining what “nation” is. Thus, male elites selectively chose or constructed the national film category in order to establish what the essense of national film. Often times, these elites discourse defined post-colonial “national” as anti-Japanism, Orientalistic beauty of Korea or the art films. Other films that do not has such quality were regarded as “low-brow” culture. Thus, this paper analyzes how these elites’ discourses excluded the akkŭk-based popular film, when they obviously displayed the traces of colonial popular culture. Despite the fact that many 1950s’ South Korean films were made based on these colonial performances, and received very well by common people, elite discourses strongly blamed these films’ inappropriateness as a national culture. Therefore, this paper will discuss the way in which colonial performances are embeded in postcolonial film, and Hollywood film techniques frame these old culture as a new and modern Korean culture by appropriating Japanese “war-time” entertainment culture into American’s. Through this analysis, I argue that the popularity of 1950s akkŭk-based Korean films reveal the unceasing power of colonial modernity in post-colonial Korean society and culture, and its different reception by elites and common people,which complicates the post-colonial South Korean cultural space.

    Cultural Correspondence of Korean War in 1960’s - Focused on filmic translations of The Wounded (「병신과 머저리」) and The General’s Mustache (「장군의 수염」)

    김지미 | 2013, (29) | pp.73~113 | number of Cited : 4
    Abstract PDF
    Anti-Communism ideology was used as effective means to unite the nation for accomplishing the goal of the ‘modernization of the fatherland’ which was the most urgent call for the Park regime in 1960’s. That issue is directly associated with the matter of how to describe ‘Korean War’ in making cultural production in those days. Both literature and film function as ‘lieux de mémoire’ where the nation store ‘collective memory’ of historical events. But how they operate is completely different in some ways because they work on different media and systems of capital and censorship on them work differently. During the Park regime, the fields of censorship and capital mingled together. Financial aid was provided for the works which express the ideas conformed to the government’s political propaganda. In 1960’s the influence of literature on mass had withered while that of film on mass just stared to gain prosperity. The comparisons of Lee Chungjun’s The Wounded and The Starting Point(Kim Soo-yong’s filmic translation of The Wounded) and Lee The General’s Mustache and Lee Eo-Ryeong’s The General’s Mustache (Lee Seong-gu’s filmic translation of he General’s Mustache) shows many differences among those texts which resulted from both media and social circumstances.

    A Characteristics of Popular Literature in Ryu Si-hwa’s Poetry

    Yoo Sung Ho | 2013, (29) | pp.117~139 | number of Cited : 0
    Abstract PDF
    Two axes supporting popular appeal of Ryu Si-hwa’s poetry are ‘pseudo religiosity’and ‘poetics of love.’ Combining religious seeking for truth and poetic aura, he emphasizes simplicity than complexity, reconciliation than conflict and positive consciousness than negative consciousness. Therefore, though his poems describe the situation causing conflicts, he stresses that we should solve them simply and clearly,even internally by changing our will or attention rather than socially renewing them. As much, his poetic language is the language of pseudo religiosity desiring transcendence to primitive affinity and sacred one. In terms of diagnosing pathological situations and consoling and curing them through clear and transparent paradox, his language closely accords with universal religious desire of the public who want the other to confirm the answer they already know and to comfort them. Also, the secret of Ryu Si-hwa’s popularity is in poetics of love. A strong nostalgia toward love as dedication and extinction constitutes such popular appeal. Narrowly keeping a balance as in acrobatics, love poems of Ryu pass through lightness most popular literature are adhering to and heaviness of books for cultured reading. From then on, most of his bestseller books contain the grammar and characteristics of love poem and aesthetically reproduce them. His poetics of love also consistently transforms from love of individual level to meditation religious level. In this respect,Ryu Si-hwa’s poems are not ‘a poetic language’ but ‘a religious language.’

    The Problem of 'Adaptation' and 'Writing' in Adaptation

    Kim, Joong-Chul | 2013, (29) | pp.141~164 | number of Cited : 0
    Abstract PDF
    This thesis looks into the problem of 'Adaptation' and 'writing' in Adaptaion(2002)directed by Spike Jonze and written the play by Charlie Kaufman. This film make us think the meaning of writing as a transference from one work to the other. The story of this film is focusing on the main character's(Charlie Kaufman)alteration while trying to write a screenplay. The screenplay is all adaptation of The Orchid Thief written by Susan Orlean. But The Orchid Thief does not have a dramatic narrative item and conflicts between the characters, but it has a lot of informations about orchid. Therefore, Charlie Kaufman has difficulties in doing an adaptation. The other side, his twin younger brother Donald Kaufman writes and behaves freely without his anxiety. Donald Kaufman writes a sceenplay for an entertaining movie, and makes a hit in the amusement industry. Twin brothers Charlie and Donald are the double selves of a writer. They stand as a symbol of writer's desires. A writer has two desires of an art work and a popular work. Donald is the other self of the real writer, Charlie Kaufman. The relationship between the original author, Susan Orlean and the model of The Orchid Thief, John Laroche is interesting. They symbolize an author and a subject matter individually. Susan has a great longing for John's fervor. But she doesn't defend her own work of the story because of infatuating with the model of the story. Adaptaion has an antipodea phase in a story. The first half of that film has a speculative and serious story, but the latter half has a exciting and entertaining story. This aspect of Adaptaion explains the distress of writing or adaption itself. Writing or reforming composition is a kind of quarrel.

    The nature of space in Prokino’s screenings and <Entotsusitsu Pero>

    Jeong Choongsil | 2013, (29) | pp.231~259 | number of Cited : 1
    Abstract PDF
    Prokino(1928-1934) could not make films that captured the attention of audiences because of the lack of manpower and money. Inferior screening conditions including outdoor screening, bad equipment, and poor accompaniment added to its negatives. For these reasons, the audience never seemed to pay complete attention while viewing their films. They engaged in simultaneous conversation, arbitrarily analyzed the film, and commented on the various aspects of it while they viewed it. In such a free atmosphere, the viewing space became a space of resistance when the audience was composed of workers, and a cognate space of colonial people when the audience was composed of Koreans in imperial Japan. Because of relaxed viewing conditions and the proletarian camaraderie of audience in the screening, audiences regarded <Entotsusitsu Pero> as an antiwar film. But <Entotsusitsu Pero> was not an antiwar movie but a juvenile movie.
