ABSTRACT

Nowadays marked movement of population is taking place globally for the purpose of economic activities or education. Such population movement has been occurring to a great extent in Korea as well in the process of modernization, industrialization, and globalization due to an increase in immigrant workers and married immigrant women since the late 1980's. Because of this, our society is undergoing rapid changes toward a multicultural society, which causes much difficulty in communication and harmonization of the society along with social problems. Amidst these changes, therefore, we as well as those who form multiculture families should be adapted to the society and move to the stages of harmonization. Objective of the present study is to search fo mutually common cultures and establish the social spirit of communication through formation of a mutual bond of sympathy for the greater harmonization of our society. The core of such spirit has been considered as the culture of filial duty, which constitutes a spiritual and practicing culture of not only our country but also East Asia. Thus it is aimed at finding from the country's songs how the filial duty is revealed in the songs of 'mother's day' or 'remembrance of parents' in the countries of married immigrant women forming the multiculture families, and establishing a constructive multicultural society as cultural people with the same culture of filial duty through better understanding of the spirit and the culture of their societies.
