ABSTRACT

This article is a comparative study between the code of conduct of the Lee Weon Ik house and the Lee Yu Tae house. In this study, it is intended to determine the measure or fashion featured by the Sa-Daebu houses' protection of their family graveyard mountains in the 17th century. Both Lee Weon Ik and Lee Yu Tae, primarily based their actions upon Juja's theory of 'Same energy', but slightly differed in their respective perceptions of the theory. Lee Weon Ik emphasized the importance of burying people at the graveyard mountain based upon the Same energy theory, and strictly criticised the act of choosing a graveyard mountain based upon geomantic studies. On the other hand, Lee Yu Tae partially accepted the idea of geomantic site-choosing based upon the concept of filial piety of the Same energy theory. And they showed slight differences as well, as Lee Weon Ik tended to rely mostly upon the service of the Myojik Nobi workers, while Lee Yu Tae usually emphasized the role of the descendants, which they should play in managing their ancestors' graves. This shows us that in the early days of family graveyard mountains, there were various methods used in various houses and in various regions.
