ABSTRACT

Many of the foreign students who wish to learn Korean culture and values in Korea would be interested in romance as they are mostly young people in their twenties and have concerns about their love affairs, future and reconciliation with their parents. Thus, I chose <Maiden Suk Young>, a Korean classical romance novel as material for education. Through this novel, we can educate students on Koreans' perspective of love, that of conjugal relationship, the world view, and a philosophy of living. Moreover, we can educate them on living culture related to funeral rites and ancestral ritual formalities with regard to the marriage of two main characters and the scene of Suk Young's death. Thus, I focused on reconstituting and interpreting the novel so that educators can teach Korean values and culture through this novel. I examined culture education to foreign students using Korean classical novels by abstracting example sentences that tell about our traditional values and living culture and discussing about reality of the time and how it is reflected in those sentences.
