ABSTRACT

This study examined <Hwangsanbyeolgok>, a Korean verse which I recently discovered. The background of this piece is the history of the Southern Party which the Father of King Gojong sponsored in the late 19th century, because <Hwangsanbyeolgok> seems to come from this historical process. <Hwangsanbyeolgok> is a long Korean verse with 151 phrases and is a typical noble verse that follows the 3․4 and 4․4 formats. In linguistic perspective, it reflects the Korean language of the 19th century. In literary perspective, <Hwangsanbyeolgok> is mutually cross-related with Lee, Gwan Bin’s <Hwangnambyeolgok>. <Hwangsanbyeolgok> used the existing <Hwangnambyeolgok> as its reference text and observed and altered it. In conclusion, <Hwangsanbyeolgok> is the Korean verse of Gugok-Style considering that it is singing the origin of truth using the mountains and waters of <Hwangsangugok>. Its characteristic is that it specifically clarifies the truth and philosophies of China and the Orient to sing about the landscapes of <Hwangsangugok>. Thus, this study understood <Hwang- sanbyeolgok> as a Taoist verse that combined Dotong Style of Taoist background and Gugok Style which was popular after the mid-Joseon Dynasty.
