ABSTRACT

Recently, the need for education about not only Korean language but also Korean culture and values arises for effective academic activities as advanced Korean learners increase. It is appropriate to learn about classical literature in order to know about inherited Korean culture. Above all, it will attract foreign students' attention to teach using classical novels in which various characters do interesting activities. Therefore, this paper shows a model of Korean family narrative and draw up measures to teach Korean culture using Korean classical full-length novels which show vivid descriptions and lives of various characters. Especially, it proposes a method of teaching literature by presenting <Sohyeonseong-rok> which shows life and culture in 17th century as an example. First of all, the paper explains about characters, narratives, relationships and conflicts between characters. Then, it explains about daily life, leisure life, etiquette, values and systems. If an educator allows students to discuss about characters' emotions and values of people of the day, and to compare the culture with their own countries' culture, it will be helpful for deeper understanding.
