ABSTRACT

The supernatural element reflects the primitive beliefs and ways of thinking of human beings, which includes diverse sociality, folklore and religiousness of all countries. As the attention to film and television works reflecting supernatural element increases in recent years, more TV works featuring supernatural element are made. The reason why supernatural elements are continuously used in the creation of modern films and televisions is that the metaphorical thinking contained in supernatural elements can show the national spirit and realize a new encounter of tradition and modernity, so as to better reflect contemporary social and cultural phenomena. Based on the‘supernatural fever’,this research analyzed characters, color meanings and story contents in supernatural TV works of Korea, China and Japan to explore reasons for differences of‘supernatural cultures’ among the three countries and their cultural basis and social values. Besides, this research also discussed how to re-create the original vitality of their national cultures by utilizing their inherent characteristics and tastes. The value of the ‘supernatural fever’ lies in the inherent feature of ‘reflecting the truth through imagination’, which shows the vitality beyond the time.
