ABSTRACT

As materials with diverse fantasy are recently managed in TV drama, they tend to increase quantitatively. Especially, ghost narration mainly based on vindictive spirit-vengeance has begun to be in new variation without being limited to horror genre since 2010. This article intends to investigate the aspect where reconstructed desire is revealed as the persons with antipodal visual psychopathology change their position in ambivalent world with the subject, rocomic horror TV drama <Jugunui Taeyang>. Suffering dyslexia due to syndrome of kidnapping case in childhood, Ju Jungwon is in the state of a kind of hysteric blindness. Rejecting to let anybody join the world personally constructed by him, ‘Kingdom’, he lives computatively, only viewing what is visible to him. On the contrary, Tae Gongsil whose eyes are extended even to invisible world communicates with ghost on the borderline of reality and death. Since her world is full of scary and weird ghosts, she is excluded by most people as a stranger. Since the first encounter when they found that ghost disappears if Tae Gong Sil contacts the body of Ju Jungwon, she entered his closed world. As a result, Ju Jungwon faces the kidnapping case with Cha Heeju who remains with scar and escapes from autistic world. Attentively listening to the appeal of ghost, Tae Gongsil sympathizes with their story. As those who are in the ambivalent world begin to recognize, accept and sympathize with existence that is different from them, they destroy their own world. <Jugunui Taeyang> seems to have positive value in that it makes crack in the belief of time where solidarity and fellowship is discolored and fades away.
