ABSTRACT

Hacheon Goh-un(1479~1530) was the main motive that made the Gohs from Changhung grow into a distinguished family in the sixteenth century. Since then, the family had produced literary men such as Goh Gyeong-myeong. Hacheon studied Sung Confucianism and passed the civil service examination. However, he was in adverse circumstances during his government post because he was implicated in the Kimyosawha, a massacre of scholars in the year of Kimyo. I analyzed the poems in Hacheonyugo collecting his posthumous works, which led to the following. He developed his view on Muwang and Baeki in Baekiron, a book about Baeki, with the theory that both sides were right. He expressed the idea that an elder brother should teach his younger brother duty to make him realize his negligence in his book Igyeokmoonjeon. He held the opinion above on the basis that the Sky means rightness and responsibility. Most of his poems were written while he was in a state of despondency after the Kimyosawha. They are characterized by the description of his great determination to put his belief into practice as a government official.
