ABSTRACT

Haksaru was built in Hamyang, Gyeongbuk when Choi Chi-won of the Silla Dynasty worked as a governor there. ‘Haksa’ is the name of Choi Chi-won when he was in government service after returning to his country. <Hamyanggunhaksarugi> of Park Ji-won is a writing on a high structure that citizens in Hamyang call as ‘Haksa’. Choi Chi-won went to Tang Dynasty at the age of 12, and passed the state examination at the age of 18, and returned to the Silla Dynasty at the age of 28. Choi Chi-won lived alone in a foreign country during his childhood and adolescence, however he came back after his success. At that time, the Silla Dynasty had been perishing, and intellects were not appreciated when they returned after their success. The dynasty did not give an opportunity to them. Finally, Choi Chi-won works a variety of occupations for the local government. One day, he disappeared while going to Mount Gaya, and people believed that he became a ‘Shinsun’. However, Park Ji-won said that Choi Chi-won did not disappear suddenly and become a Shinsun. Park Ji-won thought that Choi Chi-won would ponder for a long time on the high structure constructed by him, and would spend a sleepless night deciding to go out into the world beyond his base. Furthermore, Citizens in Hamyang remember such Choi Chi-won, and called the high structure as ‘Haksaru’. The structure’s name is not ‘Munchanghu’ which is a name called after Choi Chi-won’s death and ‘Goun’ which is a name made by himself after deciding on his departure. Calling the high structure to ‘Haksa’ means that people remember Choi Chi-won who thought alone for a long time to decide to go out into the world. Park Ji-won interpreted about the name of ‘Haksaru’, and deeply understood sympathized with Choi Chi-won. According to the Park Ji-won, ‘Haksa’ exists anywhere at any time. Therefore, it means that Choi Chi-won is ‘Haksa’ a thousand years ago, Park Ji-won is ‘Haksa’ a thousand years later, and there is ‘Haksa’ everywhere.
