    An Ancient mirror; the otherness of Tokkaebi

    Kyung-Seop kim | 2008, (18) | pp.33~53 | number of Cited : 4
    Abstract PDF
    Koreans, on the one hand, transfer their scopes of consciousness into those of unconsciousness through Tokkaebi, and the reverse process is also true. To put it another way, Tokkaebi plays a critical role as a medium of communication between the consciousness and the unconsciousness among Koreans. Koreans tend to reflect their reluctant 'shadow of mind' through the being called Tokkaebi. As a matter of fact, however, it is true Tokkaebi is an alien substance, as familiar it is. It is the very its characteristic of ambivalence and marginal-being that induces us to call Tokkaebi a 'familiar trap,' or a 'well-known monster'. Tokkaebi is far from being a god, and it falls into the category of neither human being nor natural being. That's why Tokkaebi wanders around us with being affiliated to nowhere. Most strangers, gods and monsters can be proofs that reveal the presence of crevices in the human abyss. We human beings have equalized the goodness with self-identity and the concept of sameness, as well as vice with alien-beings. Alien beings and monsters exist not only in the legends or fantasy but also in the unconscious core of our culture as a mirror that hint how our culture is structured. In this vein, ghosts, which hold so-called traumas, can be classified into the category of 'The other'. Of course, needless to say, Tokkaebi is sure to be called 'The other'. By pursuing its behaviors and conceptuality, this thesis is aimed at investigating the otherness of Tokkaebi among Tokkaebi-Tales. In conclusion, Tokkaebi has the characteristic of 'double identity', 'double otherness' and 'the double self and the otherness.' Tokkaebi, which can be defined as 'double identity', is not a monster differentiated from human-self. This tales display the relationship between self and an 'identified stranger' or between self and an 'internalized stranger.' The concept of 'double otherness' of Tokkaebi imitate the concept of metamorphosis enabling the otherness of females from males. Tokkaebi, playing a role of 'the double self and the otherness,' puts emphasis on us how we should treat other ourselves in us and how dangerous myself in me can be.

    The Subject and the Others in Loyalists' Love-songs for the King(忠臣戀主之詞)

    Mijeong Choi | 2008, (18) | pp.55~102 | number of Cited : 10
    Abstract PDF
    This paper aims to interpret Loyalists' Love-songs for the King(忠臣戀主之詞) from the viewpoint of ‘the subject and the others’. These Love-songs have been written in traditions with the female speaker of the male servant, specially in this paper all of them exiled. The writers and their works interpreted in this paper are Cho wi's(梅溪 曺偉, 1454~1503) Manboonga<萬憤歌>, Jeong Ceol's(松江 鄭澈, 1536~1593) Samiingok(思美人曲), and Sok-miingok(續美人曲). Also, Chinese works Quyuan(屈原)'s Lisao<離騷> and others are interpreted as the originators of these works. In real life, all the writers were <a male; a governing classes; a Junzi(君子)>, on the other hand in their Loyalists' Love-songs, they disguised as <a female; a governed classes : a xiaoren(小人)> by the persona. The points of this paper are as below : The first point is to show the tradition of the Loyalists' Love-songs in Chosun. The speaker of Quyuan(屈原)'s Lisao<離騷> is male, which had been changed into female by Cho wi. This alternation had been made according to the changes of the classical scholar's role as a servant. The latter had been succeeded by Jeong Ceol, who perfected the Loyalists' Love-songs with a splendid performance. The second point is to pursue the question how deep and fully this unfamiliar, downfallen and literary situation could make the writers understand the others and could make them change their subject in their real life. In Sok-miingok(續美人曲), Jeong Ceol raised the problem of alienation that he must have experienced during his exile period. Although it was not enough for him hiding behind female persona to have the most precious right to give up his subject with his own will, his question in argument must be meaningful. However, he must have shown limits. He was born to be 'a Junzi(君子)' and he was in belief that he could go back to his pre-glorious days sooner or later. That's why he couldn't abandon his subject in order to give a warm reception to the others unconditionally.
