ABSTRACT

Each land has its own historical beauty as well as its natural beauty, as a stage of history which has continued on without ceasing until now. Writers of pre-modern period noticed the fact that the landscape of their country was built up and changed by activities of man, and they composed poems and proses praising its natural and historical beauty. Hamgyeong-do(province) and Pyeongan-do has been recognized as outlying districts in the history of Goryeo and Joseon. Yi Seonggye commanded to readjust the administrative district of Hamgyeong-do when he ordered Jeong Dojeon to investigate tombs there and it caused its development in earnist. Since then, Sejong dispatched Gim Jongseo to found 6 military camps, and established the border. Henceforth, Royal Court of Joseon readjusted the division of land as to be Pal-do(8 provinces)-Gyeonggi․Chungcheong․Jeonra․Gyeongsang․Gangwon․Hwanghae․Pyeongan․Hamgyeong, and this viewpoint of Pal-do became common sense of common people in Joseon. However, now it is impossible to come and go Hwanghae․Pyeongan․Hamgyeong and a part of Gangwon for political reasons. Lines and pharases concerning Pyeongan-do and Hamgyeong-do lead us to take time for reflection on national reconciliation. It is needed to restore the idea of Pal-do, if one wants to arouse national consciousness, and for that it will also be a way to understand the way Pal-do understood in the literature of pre-modern period and to meditate on the traditional idea on the territory.
