ABSTRACT

Early Pansori off with Group Literature. Latter Pansori depends on capability and artistry of singers but it's a product of consequence that individual artistic conversion progressed rapidly. However Pansori itself came to a crisis quickly by such a rapid change. This Study aims at the point we should recognize the literary character when the genre itself originated and find a plan of recovery from it, as a plan that Present Pansori gets over the crisis and becomes a future oriented art. The word, Group Literature isn't used as a universal literary term but group and literature are related concepts they have been maintained coherence mutually from the formative period of the original literature. Even though Pansori was a literature originated at the dawning of modern times, it had a character of primitive collectivity. Its character can be understood by unrefined stories and songs, participation of performers and the people, a gambling place they direct together etc. Pansori started off with tale and the stories were at the crude level from the first. In the midst of the plays of wandering group which have repertory of such stories, songs and talents, Pansori, 'Story Song' appeared in the list. But Pansori reorganized to hit the noblemen's fancy passing through the process of artistic refining rapidly and making individual great singers. It's a phenomenon that group literary nature changed into individual artistic nature rapidly. The typical record that shows such a form is <Gwanwooheui>, created by Song Man-jae in the early 19th century. This Chinese poem comprised of 50 pieces makes us analogize process of specialization of performers group to be possible and is very valuable as a work that helps the research of this field. After the group disappeared, singers separated from it changed Pansori into artistic skill-centered art catering to the wealthy's tastes and a great part of audience turned away Pansori. To break through this phenomenon, we should change group literary nature of Early Pansori into modern style and induce sympathy and participation of numbers of groups through media with the re-creation of story that can arouse joint interests. The attitude of culture comprehension and the effort of re-creation through the understanding of group will not only vitalize basic mind of Pansori but light up the future of Pansori and make a nation and the world have cultural life forces.
