ABSTRACT

This paper studies aspect and meanings of companionship between Sŏng, U-chŭng and scholars in Qing dynasty during diplomatic mission in the year of Muin(1818). He made an exchange with scholars in Qing dynasty about poems and letters, and included them in Myŏngsanjip. It is a valuable material which is the only record of diplomatic mission in the year of Muin. It is a very important document that verifies aspect of diplomatic mission in the year of Muin and fills a gap in Yŏnhaengnok studies from 1817 to 1821. Sŏng, U-chŭng thinks companionship is the most important thing during diplomatic mission. He met Do Ju(陶澍) and Jin, Yong-gwang(陳用光) who were well-known in Qing dynasty, and they built human networks. They exchanged poems which were related to compliments of personality and poetic talent, and expressed wishfulness and longing for saying goodbye. They are not always ceremonial, they are much more sincere and truthful. So, it is enough to say that their companionship is tŭkŭich'ŏ(得意處) and sinkyo(神交).
