ABSTRACT

Oh Doil(1645-1703)was a scholar and politician of the Joseon dynasty in 17th century. In June 1868, he started off to Peking as Seojanggwan(an official in charge of keeping records) and returned in November the same year. He wrote the ByeongInYeonHaengIISung during the journey. The main content of the ByeongInYeonHaengIISung focused on the journey from ApRokGang to Peking and the days he stayed in Peking. The returning course only took a small part in the book. Entries in ByeongInYeonHaengIISung were mostly written in essay which is more flexible and detailed compared to the poetries in early Yeonhaengroks. In ByeongInYeonHaengIISung, Oh Doil recorded information about the politics, economy, culture and many other aspects of Qing dynasty at the time which is very valuable for the study of the period in China. At the beginning of the Qing dynasty, most scholars in Joseon dynasty considered Qing as barbarian, and don’t think it’ll stay for long. In ByeongInYeonHaengIISung, although Oh Doil still predicted the Qing dynasty’s destiny the same way, but with a little reluctant he started to recognized the economy development and civilization in Qing which is an example that the attitudes of Joseon scholars towards Qing gradually changed through time.
