ABSTRACT

This study aims to classify the lawsuit story of late Joseon period by three types according to the relationship between the people participating in the lawsuit, and to explore the social changes reflected in the story and the values ​​that yadam oriented. In order for the accusation to be established, it is essential that the plaintiff, the defendant, and the judge make a ruling. The first type of lawsuit story is clearly distinguished between the plaintiff and the defendant according to the standard of good and evil. It has a structure in which the problem of the real world is solved by the profitable order represented by the judge, and the law of the world is permanently preserved in the story. The second type is the case that the judge is on the side of the defendant, or make plaintiff resentful under false accusation. In this type, judgments is influenced by realistic situations, such as money or personal acquaintances, rather than by profitable order, and it reflects the anomy of the world. The third type of the story emphasizes the problem of contract and trust in relation. There's no absolute and normative value, and the relationship between plaintiff and defendant is difficult to distinguish by the standard of good and evil. The cause of the lawsuit in late Joseon dynasty is gradually diversified away from the problem of the moral principles to economic crime, and the story also reflects the change of reality. However, there are still frequent recordings of the first type of lawsuit story in yadam, which gives us a glimpse of the idea that yadam readers imagine.
