This thesis tried to think about the history and spatial perception of Myeonangjeong(俛仰亭) in depth. It seems reasonable to assume that the meaning of the name'俛仰' took after '君子三樂' by Mencius, which reflects the wish to move on shameless life by overcoming selfishness based on Hoyeonjigi. Myeonangjeong is a 3 section a grass pavilion Nujeong(草亭) built by Song Soon(宋純) in 1533 on Jewol Peak in Bongsan-myeon, Damyang-gun, There was the first fix of it in 1552. Later, it got destroyed over Jeong-Yoo-Jae-ran (1597), and then restored before 1610, It got refixed by descendants in 1654. After that, its existence was found again in the 1700s and 1800s, reviewing old documents and Jeyeong poetry. Then it got refixed in 1930. It got designated as Jeollanam-do Local Cultural Heritage No. 6 in 1972. It got renovated in 1979 and finally refixed around 1989. Like this, this is the brief history of it known and passed down so far.
Myeonangjeong's space gets recognized in four different ways. First, it looks at the direction of feel no shame[無愧不怍]. Song Soon's enjoyment of nature, seeking wise man orientation and natural unity got directly connected to the moral life and also to the vastness[浩然之氣] of Mencius. Connecting it to the meaning of Jeongja name, 'Myeonang', the consciousness to live shameless life by overcoming selfishness based on Hoyeonji got reflected in it. Second, it talks about the leading space of Honam region Poetry World[湖南詩壇]. Song Soon's poetry and lyric works became the driving force of creating lyric works for the writers in Damyang including Honam Poetry Group. Myeonangjeong was core space leading the Honam Poetry Group. Third, it talks about esthetic space of 湖南最勝處 and 看人看世. The poets who climbed to Myeonangjeong which boasts of the best view of Honam overlooked landscape there and never stopped their esthetic activity to represent the impressions borne by Seunggyeong, Songsunand, and other preeminences in that space through reminiscences. Fourth, it talks about the background of 御製詩題. In the commemoration of Song Soon's 60th anniversary of passing the highest-level state examination to recruit rank officials, so-called Hoebang-yeon, Honam representatives got gathered to commemorate Song Soon's 60th anniversary. There was a story which tells the representatives of Honam gathered there got him on sedan chair[荷輿俛仰亭]. In order to give the talented scholars of Honam an opportunity to obtain their fame, 正祖 took advantage of the story as poetic subject (詩題) of Dogwa (道科). Since then, it has been passed down and spoken by posterity.
