And Seol-In-Gui, Dang-Tae-Jong, Ul-Ji-Gyeong-Deg were participated in war between the Goguryo and Dang. A Manchu war repeatly broke out in Jo-Seon Dynasty. Therefore national power was weaken. So people of Jo-Seon Dynasty longed for national power of Goguryo. And narrative of Seol-In-Gui was flowed from China. Besides Seol-In-Gui, Dang-Tae-Jong, Ul-Ji-Gyeong-Dege were deified and the story was transmitted. Therefore <Seol-In-Gui-Jeon>․<Dang-Tae-Jong-Jeon>․<Ul-Ji-Gyeong-Deg-Jeon> were able to published. Seol-In-Gui only come on stage in <Seol-In-Gui-Jeon>. Seol-In-Gui was embodied aristocratic hero in Seoul block novels and national hero in printed books. Seoul block novels earlier were published than printed books. And Seol-In-Gui was embodied national hero in Chinese Seol-In-Gui narrative. Accordingly Seol-In-Gui was changed from aristocratic hero to national hero in Jo-Seon Dynasty. Dang-Tae-Jong come on stage <Seol-In-Gui-Jeon>․<Dang-Tae-Jong- Jeon>․<Ul-Ji-Gyeong-Deg-Jeon>. Dang-Tae-Jong was jointly embodied that he had thirst for conquest. His behavior was justified in <Ul-Ji- Gyeong-Deg-Jeon>. But his war of conquest was criticized in <Seol- In-Gui-Jeon>․<Dang-Tae-Jong-Jeon>. Ul-Ji-Gyeong-Deg also come on stage <Seol-In-Gui-Jeon>․<Dang- Tae-Jong-Jeon>․<Ul-Ji-Gyeong-Deg-Jeon>. His loyalty about Dang-Tae- Jong jointly was stood out in three novels. Besides loyalty about Yu-Mu-Ju was stood out in <Ul-Ji-Gyeong-Deg-Jeon>. But Ul-Ji-Gyeong-Deg was lacked of problem solving and judgement in <Seol-In-Gui-Jeon>. And he is effeminate and narrow-minded. Seol- In-Gui, Dang-Tae-Jong, Ul-Ji-Gyeong-Deg's shape is revealed desire getting back of Yodong and the Han race's capability. Seol-In-Gui and Ul-Ji-Gyeong-Deg are generals of the enemy. But their dauntlessness and loyalty was exemplified public of Jo-Seon Dynasty. Therefore amicable perspective about Seol-In-Gui and Ul-Ji-Gyeong-Deg is revealed that ideal rulers are not in Jo-Seon Dynasty and public want ideal rulers.
