This article examines the speaker who faces the incomplete body in classical poetry. Through this example, the origins and ways of self-reflection related to the subject matter of disease, disability, and accident are revealed. In the mid-eighth century, "Docheonssoogwaneumga" described the process of mercy through the face of blind children and Avalokitesvara, suggesting the possibility that the mind of mercy could spread as the eyes opened face other heavy creatures. The Goryeo song "Cheoyonga" influenced Cheoyonga through his personality amicable as he faced a fever god. This figure inherited the tradition of the old work, but another hostile narrator faced a fever scene and cursed and said "mutzunmal," creating a three-dimensional situation.
The narrator of the narrative lyrics of the late Joseon Dynasty does not face such transcendent beings as gods. Instead, he looks inside himself who is caught up in the problem of disability and marriage. In the first half of "Nocheonyoga," there is also a sharp criticism that faces his past and criticizes prejudice against disability. But in the latter half, it weakens as it seeks individual happiness. It does not reach the level of empathy for the pain of other disabled people. The protagonist of "Dendongeomhwajeonga" also experienced several accidents or infectious diseases that resulted in the loss of husbands and burns of children, the flower of life. However, he did not limit his and his son's misfortunes to his own experiences, but sought to expand the consensus through solidarity with young widows and other women.
