ABSTRACT

In this article, I want to think about what is the power that changed Kim, An-guk. And the purpose of this article is to discuss a identity by analyzing the <Kim, An-guk>. When discussing the identity of a person, as important as the personality of the person is the other person surrounding him and the relationship between them. Because the identity of a person is meaningful when it is with many other different people. Kim, An-guk was perceived by his father, uncle, and father-in-law as a person who lacks the literary talents that a man of the scholar-gentry class should possess. This is due to Kim, An-guk's physical passivity. Kim's physical passivity appears as dizziness for the characters. The lack leads to the breakdown of the relationship, and the break of the relationship causes Kim, An-guk's ontological crisis. However, Kim An-guk's extraordinary ability is expressed by Kim's wife. Because of this, Kim, An-guk is recognized by his father and others. So, <Kim, An-guk> is like a story on the choice of a spouse and a story of poor treatment to son-in-law. But the personality of a character and the conflict relationships are different. It is possible that Mrs. Lee, who recognized her own otherness, acknowledge his otherness and considered him as another subject. This combination of self-identity and Otherness is the dialectic of establishing identity.
