ABSTRACT

This paper investigate how it is possible to reflect and realize one’s value of life in daily life, field of labor and the whole lifetime through analyzing Misaeng which is created by Yun Tae-ho, a series of comic books that were originated from Webtoons and released as TV drama. Every episode of Miseing is represented characters’s reflective monologue and dialogue, and cognitive senses. The main character, Jang Geu-rae’s monologue realizes the philosophy of observation and gaze toward the world and society, relationship with the others and himself. The most influential reflective devices are represented as characters’ observation and experience in the everyday life and working field. They get some inspiration from their life fieldS and solutions about their own problems. They decipher the affective signs from their lives and repositioned them into their ‘sustainable reflective assets’. Jang Geu-rae constantly communicates and acts with his colleagues with responsibility, moral sense, and authentic attitude. These attitude leads inter-dependence between colleagues and makes it possible to lead their symbiotic relationships. The detailed ways of representing reflectivity of Misaeng are not only general rhetorics of narrative as like dialogue, monologue and narration, but also mixed composition between image and dialogue, visualization of speech, parody and overlapping of meaning, symbolization, etc.
