ABSTRACT

This paper attempts to examine the background of the Mook Masan Culture (four editions), one of regional Mooks published in the first half of the 1980s, and to find its characteristics through an analysis of its composition. For its background, we found that the Mook became an alternative media under a close control of the press and publication executed by the new military political power and that the historical, social and economic specificities of Masan region came into it. The principal agents were intelligent young men including some literary persons, who have a strong social consciousness. Concerning its characteristics, the result of an analysis on its constitution of articles is that it is, as a basic characteristic, a comprehensive Mook, strongly oriented to social mouvement. This basic characteristic can be confirmed through five features as follows: comprehensiveness, regionalism, globalism, orientation to the interest of the people, aim for radical social change. This study is limited to an general analysis appreciation on the Mook Masan Culture itself because of a constraint of materials concerned. Mais it has a significance in the points that it's first academic attempt about the Mook and that it deals with a regional social mouvement developed in the first half of the 1980s, nearly left out from the history of regional social mouvement. Finally, it seems necessary to analyze the content of the articles issued in the Mook, to make a comparative appreciation with the other Mooks, and to give it a proper status from the point of view of an overall history of regional social mouvement.
