ABSTRACT

This study aimed to examine the meaning of the 50th anniversary of the 4.3 projected in the works of under the sea, under the ground and the appearance of 4·3 in the memories of people living abroad. Although 50 years have passed, the memory of the massacre perpetuated by the ruling power and the suffering of the Jeju people is apparent, and the 50th anniversary means that an atmosphere has been created that can formally comfort the souls of the victims in an inexplicable situation. On the other hand, under the sea, under the ground has significance in that it depicts the inner agony of the perpetrator through a character named Han Il-sang, unlike previous works. While the existing works mainly show a narrative structure that describes the victim's pain, this work stands out in that it depicts the agony of a repenting perpetrator.
