ABSTRACT

Park Joyeol primarily wrote dramas that was based on allegory. However he announced two dramas that used documentary format in the mid-1970s. This change was sudden and a gap was significant between an abstract world used allegory and a specific world based on the fact. Because changes of playwriting style was affected by several factors, censorship can not be the only reason for the changes. However, it is clear that since the ban of performing about <A toenail of general O> in the 1975 playwriting style of Park Joyeol changed. In addition, it need to be taken into account that censorship was strongly working in a period of his activity. In short, the cause that he chaged his style and he stop writing after documentary dramas could not independent of the external environment. Since he had started writing he was always careful of censorship. He spoke only through abstract language in order to avoid censorship. However, performances ban on <A toenail of general O> gave the imprint that His style was no longer permitted. Eventually Park, Jo-yeol selected the documentary theater viewed as adaptive systems and delivered messages in the most passive manners. Thus, understanding about the activities of Park, Jo-yeol in 1970s will help us to guess the subtle relationship between the national censorship and creative activities of writers and allows us to understand the inner logic of the writer designed to continue the artistic activities.
