ABSTRACT

This article explores and examines how the half-breed, who born after the Korean war, represented in novels of Korean division , that is, <Legacy of the Sun>, <The Half-Breed>, <Royal Tomb and Occupation Forces>, <Black Joe>, <Sseggimi(Half-Breed)>, and <Odd Pairs of Socks>. The body of half-breeds indicates the absence of her/his father, ie. USA army, and the existence of their mother as a foreigner's whore. And it was treated as a kind of disease as a metaphor. Thus we can explain the half-breed who was born as a symbol of modernity and objectified by ‘our’ public or powerful gaze, only though his/her mother who are subordinate subject or subaltern.
