ABSTRACT

Sohyunseongrok is an ideology oriented work with the story that Sohyunseong, who grew up in the Confucian atmosphere and discipline under the female breadwinner, Lady Yang, takes filial duty as the foremost value and practices it, and stabilizes his family. During the process of upbringing, Lady Yang shows a rather coercive and authoritative leadership, which is understood as projecting her own desire to her son and forcing absolute obedience. As a result of that, Sohyunseong sometimes shows problematic behaviors such as cheating in national exam and displaying abusive remarks or behavior to his wives. This means that this work reflects the transition period of the mid-late 17th century and contains both the Confucian ideological orientation and realistic desires. In the meantime, in supplementary copy, the characteristics and roles of Lady Yang and Sohyunseong change, which results from the awareness of a problem about imperfect leadership in the main copy, and these can be understood as distinctive characteristics of the main copy and supplementary copy.
