This research introduced and investigated 『Dugangseungyucheob』, written by Hong Seokmo, Park Jongyu, O Taewoon, and Hong Seonmo, the literary persons of the 19th century, after traveling Dureung, and studied the content.
This poem collection book includes 15 title 55 pcs of sightseeing poets written after traveling to Dureung in 1845 and 2 pcs of Lee Geonpil’s 「Dugangseungyudo」, which described the landscape of Dureung sightseeing. The four persons who traveled together were in the same political party, Soron(少論), and had social intercourse earlier on. Dureung was a place where Park Jongyu resided, and their senior literary persons as Jeong Yakyong· Seo Yugu, whom the literary persons of that period admired(敬慕), settled down, so the place was naturally selected as a travel site. There, literary painter as well as calligrapher Lee Geonpil left a painting of sightseeing to Saradam(鈔鑼潭) and Songjeong(松亭) and attached to their sightseeing poems, his simple stroke includes the real scenery(實景) of Dureung, following the trend of Namjongmuninhwa(南宗文人畵) of the 19th century.
Sightseeing poems described several famous sights of Dureung during that time. For example, the poems included Songjeong, owned by Park Jongyu family after Jeong Yagyong family, Youndaejeong(練帶亭) in front of Saradam, Seokrim(石林), where the manor of Deoksu Lee family(德水李氏) was located, and Baegwoonru(白雲樓) site, where Sin Ikseong‘s Donghoi(東淮) villa was located. The four persons sang their retirement life in beautiful Dureung, on the other hand, revealed sorriness about their unfulfilled dream of government service. In respect of this point, it is remarkable that Dureung was a popular suburb area for the literary persons of that period, who dreamed of both retirement life and government service, where they could easily reach the capital city by boat.
