ABSTRACT

This study examines the meaning of Tsushima Domain’s dispatch of Saihan(Tsushima Domain’s director for Diplomatic Negotiations) separately in addition to Kanshu(the head of Waegwan) in negotiations with Joseon by analyzing the prior discussion and actual aspects of Oiljabmul(relief supplies) negotiation in 1736. There are two main effects of dispatch of Saihan. First, Saihan could draw cooperation from the Dongnaebu side. When Saihan was dispatched, Dongnaebu actively cooperated to return Saihan quickly to Tsushima. Next, Saihan could enable the Joseon Dynasty take action. When the Joseon government received a report on the dispatch of Saihan, they recognized that Tsushima Domain was putting emphasis on the negotiations. Through this recognition, the negotiations could be concluded quickly. These effects could not be expected from Kanshu, a resident of Waegwan. In the mid-18th century, Saihan could effectively lead negotiations with Joseon by the “position itself” rather than “who is appointed”.
