ABSTRACT

The main purpose of the study was to investigate and analyze various meanings of ‘Food’ and ‘Eating’ that appear in Sijo, particularly the works which used food as the theme or the subject. In order to do this, the study was conducted to find and interpret the meanings and ideas in Sijo works that are related to the concept of the ‘Food Ideology’. Hedonism indicates sensual pleasure, Nutritionism for health and nutritional value, Spiritualism as moral or metaphysical value. The result of the study follows: If the food is alcohol, it functions as a way of running away from the world which also stands out as an affirmation of desire. Secondly, in many cases, Sijo works carry both ideology-oriented and pleasure-oriented tendency. This is considered to be related with the sense of social balance. Lastly, the topic of food and eating indicates the socio-political views of the narrator and used as the tool to construct ideology. In this sense, food and eating used in Sijo works are strongly carrying the socio-political implications.
