ABSTRACT

‘Joseon Buddhist Association’ can be defined as a representative pro-Japanese group that made Joseon Buddhism serve the government and trained the Pro-Japanese Joseon people. Especially, Joseon students who left for Japan to study and propagate Buddhism under the full support of the ‘Joseon Buddhist Association’ have become a representative emblem of ‘Japanophilism,’ which even gave birth to a modifier of a married Buddhist priest who imitated Japanese Buddhism and ruined the traditional Buddhism and Dharma Buddhism. But ironically, there have been few studies that concretely investigated their activities. Even the actual state of ‘Joseon students who propagated Buddhism in Japan’ is not well understood. Then, what activities of them at the time could be regarded as ‘pro-Japanese activities’? Taking this question into consideration, this study would discuss the actual state and trend of ‘Joseon students who propagated Buddhism’ from the Joseon Buddhist Association through the magazine Joseon Buddhism, published by the Joseon Buddhist Association. Through this, this study would draw the meaning and aspect of pro-Japanese activities of the Joseon Buddhist Association and ‘Joseon students who studied and propagated Buddhism’ concretely.
