ABSTRACT

This paper is to examine characteristics of novels as original work for filmization through inquiring into having filmized novels since 2000. Several Korean novels have adapted to film since 2000 and more novels will adapt to film for the time being because the movies originated from literature had a great success recently. Not only three novels of Hwang, Seokyeong but also The Black Flower of Kim, Yeongha, Misil of Kim, Byeora, Hwangjini of Hong, Seokjung, Leesiml and Leejin of Kim, Takhwan and Sin, Keongsuk. There are two characteristics appeared in the novels which have adapted to film since 2000. First is the strengthening of Traditional Narrativity which is based upon causationism and provability. This Narrativity has mutual accordance with Hollywood Genre Narrative Convention in narrative structure and reign over narrative texts of present time as guarantied narrative structure. Second is the superficial storytelling which consists of the restraining from narrating interior mind, the segment according to space and speedy storytelling which are similar to speedy camera works of Genre Movies. This characteristics has intimate relationship with Hybrid-Genre tendency that is chief trend of narrative at present. It is good that the film and novel are strengthening mutual intimate relationship again. But restriction to narrow range of narrative having two characteristics by economic logic is rather dangerous, because the cultural development is possible when diverse narrative can survive.
