    A basic plan to promote the use of the adult guardianship system is currently being formulated, in which the prevention of abuse of voluntary guardianship contracts is also considered. However, cases of abuse of voluntary guardianship contracts have not been studied in detail. This paper therefore attempts to examine what systemic defects exist in the voluntary guardianship contract law that have led to cases of abuse, and to consider remedial measures from various perspectives in terms of operation and amendment of the law, by typifying court cases concerning voluntary guardianship contracts and identifying specific problems.

    A Study on the Japanese Court Dance for the Study of Ancient Korean Music and Dance: Based on the composition of the Goguryeo-style music and dance movements and its status as a court dance

    Abstract PDF
    This paper studies the basic dance movements of Bugaku(舞樂), the composition of Goguryeo-style music & dance, and its status as a court dance. In 『Kyokunsho(敎訓抄)』, a total of 46 Bugaku basic dance movements are recorded. However, one can see that there are some differences in the later literature, indicating that the tradition(transmission) has been severed or there are newly added movements. Meanwhile, in Komagaku (高麗 樂), the composition of <Daisotoku(退宿德)>, <Shinsotoku(進宿德)>, and <Komaboko(狛鉾)>, which are Goguryeo-style music and dance, mainly consists of 3 parts and commonly uses 8 basic dance movements. Most notable is that these movements have a very long history, and most of them can be found in daily life. The ancient Korean dance was never irrelevant in daily life. Thus, it is highly likely that Komagaku, which was introduced in Japan, includes the same or similar movements of the ancient Korean dance. On the other hand, based on 『Bugakuyouroku(舞樂要錄)』, by studying its status as a court dance, it is clear that Goguryeo-styled music & dance have exerted considerable influence. As the ancient Korean wave, Komagaku, Japan contains some of the features of the ancient Korean dance. Obviously this study of Komagaku in Japan can be as a reference for the study of the ancient Korean music and dance, which is in a stalemate due to a lack of absolute data.

    Changes in perception of North Korea in Japan from the Korean Wave drama “Crash Landing on You”

    Abstract PDF
    The research is based on a written interview with Japanese experts about the changing perception of North Korea in Japan, which emerged from the box office of the Korean Wave content “Crash Landing on You” in North Korea. The researchers evaluated the perception of North Korea in Japan as negative, including poverty, abnormal systems, controlled societies, military states, failed states, and criminal states. Underlying this perception was the trauma of the abduction issue and the anxiety and fear of security threats such as North Korea’s nuclear tests and missile tests. It was also found that restricted information had a significant impact on North Korea’s negative perception along with stereotypes about North Korea. In Japan, “Crash Landing on You” has expanded its perception of North Korea, reacknowledging the reality of the division of the two Koreas, and allowing content to be accommodated regardless of external political relations. It served as an opportunity for Japanese to realize that North Korea exists in a more diverse way, in addition to its stereotyped image through “Crash Landing on You”. The “Crash Landing on You” served as an information channel to understand North Korean society and reality and arouse curiosity, but there was no fundamental change in perception of North Korea’s chronic issues such as the existing abduction issue. These results show that there is a limit to the change in perception of North Korea, as they distinguish North Korea in the realm of fiction and real politics based on the Japanese people’s unchanging character and values. The Japanese media had no choice but to limit the information on North Korea according to public opinion as issues directly related to the national security, such as the abduction issue, missile, and nuclear issue, continued. As such, the lack of information on North Korea in Japan has led to a limitation that can only be biased. Given that the new format of the drama has contributed positively to the expansion of awareness in North Korea, it is necessary to deliver more diverse information on North Korea in Japan, and the role of the media is important here.
