This article has contemplated <Ilminga> that is a lyrical work listed on the basis of the contents of 『Jiam Ilgi (Diary of Jiam)』, a diary of Jiam Yoon E-hoo (1636-1699). The study on <Ilminga> has its foundation of the macro-way of view of Gangho Gasa (songs to praise the nature while enjoying the life in rural area) in the 17th century to take a look at <Ilminga> and it was taken a look on the basis of 『Jiam Ilgi』 that displayed the life of its writer, Yoon E-hoo, but it has taken a look with the focus on certain part of <Ilminga> without the explanation on the relationship between the entire contents and 『Jiam Ilgi』 which is something to be desired. Therefore, this article has contemplated what would be the intent of the writer to discuss about the contents of 『Jiam Ilgi』, the relationship with <Ilminga> and the subject to ultimately address through <Ilminga>.
First of all, <Ilminga> was creatively produced with the influence of <Hwansanbyeolgok> from Lee Rak who was an uncle of Yoon E-hoo. <Hwansanbyeolgok> was created with the influence of Dojam’s <Gwigeoraesa> that it displayed the sense of satisfaction his life in Gangho. It is true that the full context of <Hwansanbyeolgok> seems to be present, but <Ilminga> displays its expansion and advancement with the delivery of subjective characteristics or style of <Hwansanbyeolgok>.
In the meantime, <Ilminga> can be divided largely into three parts with the first part to depict the life in Okcheon, the second part to sing the life in Juk-do, and the concluding part to sing the blessing for the king. However, for each part thereof, it showed deviation in the emotion of speaker and this can be attributable to the fact that the life of Yoon E-hoo in his winding years has been integrated in <Ilminga>. Yoon E-hoo experiences political difficulties in his winding years for certain level, and because of such fact, he still had his grudges on his difficult times deep inside of his heart, and although he felt abundance of satisfaction while living in nature as a well-established member of local community, he ultimately winding down of his life while praying for blessings for the king in far distance away. It is difficult to bundle up the foregoing matters into a single tone, but if it is considered on the basis of the contents of 『Jiam Ilgi』, it can be understand on why Yoon E-hoo displayed such a complicated emotion. Consequently, <Ilminga> is the work that displays the appearance of self-stated narrative with strong self statement that displays an aspect of Gangho Gasa while displaying the one’s life at the final days simultaneously.
