ABSTRACT

The aim of this article is to illuminate the historicity of representation through analyzing representation differences in two historical dramas dealing with the same historical facts, the Park Yeol · Kaneko Humiko Case occurred in Tokyo in Imperial Japan from 1923 to 1926. Anarchist from Colony (performed as a theater in 1985) was a pioneer in adopting the past incidents forbidden to discuss in the public, that is, the Korean Genocide following the Great Kanto Earthquake and the High Treason Incident of Park Yeol · Kaneko Humiko case. But the narrative method and gender perspective was conventional. The drama focused on a Korean’s failed resistance against Japanese imperialism. In the drama, a male nationalist protagonist was highly praised by showing an attitude of self-sacrifice, while a female protagonist was represented to be dependent on man and lack of sexual abstinence. Park Yeol (showed as a movie in 2017) was a pioneer in representing the Empire of Japan in earnest through taking amount of scenes showing the frequent replacements of Cabinet and turmoil of Court. The narrative method and gender perspective was dramatically changed. The drama focused on Anarchists’s lasting resistance against Japanese nationalism in the Emperor system. In this drama, a female protagonist was represented struggling to be a writer as an independent thinker and to be a comrade resisting Japanese nationalism together with male protagonist.
