ABSTRACT

Shin Jaehyo rewrote six Pansori works, so we call him as a Shakespeare of Korea. And he wrote many short songs too, but their genre characteristics are ambiguous. This thesis is view to clear the meaning of those songs. His songs are called as Tanga, Heoduga or Kasa, but I think they are his original works which are not limited a special genre. He picked many other's songs in his work. So his work is composed of various songs, many researcher regard it many works. But I think that approach ignored Shin Jae-hyo's intention. Because he ordered us to understand those works with unified viewpoint. Heoduga is composed of thirteen songs. Some songs are made by other people, but the majority are his own works. He expressed nation's blooming future by comparing to China. This vision is very freshness at that time. Oseomga is composed of things which express the emotion of love or sadness with separating. In this work, he showed common people's sight about love emotion directly, and omnibus style experimentally. Shin Jaehyo expressed his mind of love his student Chaisun to distraction. This presention is very curious, so his mind is attention to modern times.
