ABSTRACT

Jookjirang, a handsome face reflecting the purity of his heart Shin, Young-myoung Deuko cherished the memory of Jookjirang because of the depth of his mind. Deuko respected the spirits of Joongsapoongmee(重士風味) and Seonkonghoosa(先公後私), which were found in Jookjirang. Joongsapoongmee upholds the mind that think highly of a man of virtue, while the spirit of Seonkonghoosa supports the attitude of putting the public interest before the private needs. When compared to the Yeekson's Amsebultong(暗塞不通) and Baegongyoungsa(背公營事), the spirits of Joongsapoongmee and Seonkonghoosa radiate the depth of profoundness and are in striking contrast. So Deukou gave high praise to a spirit found in Jookjirang's handsome face. He sought everlasting encounter with the spirit through death, which would transcend it. Though it might sound like a paradox.
