ABSTRACT

Song Gang Jeong Cheol(1536-1593) composed <Samiingok> and <Sokmiingok> circa 53 of his age, whose main theme is both for the longing for the King. After writing <Samiingok>, he recited a Chinese poem to express his feelings at that moment; "Thinking a beautiful lover with one melody but a long ballad, I am old but my mind is refreshed." When considering that the speaker of <Samiingok> is an old woman and a bride for <Sokmiingok> respectively, it is evident that Song Gang created <Samiingok> and <Sokmiingok> in terms of both the old body and young mind. In that sense, they are very interesting because the two works show how yearning for the King could be different from the perspective of the opposite characteristics of the old woman and the bride. The purpose of this paper is to study creation techniques that contribute to writing <Sokmiingok> where the young mind of Song Gang is reflected as a bride. I think some noticeable characteristics shown in the creation of <Sokmiingok> are asking-answering narrationㆍbride the speaker making standㆍcompression of time zone and I analyze each of them in three chapters. <Sokmiingok> and <Samiingok> are considered a kind of the relation of twins for each other, and to properly compare the works would make it easier to get creation techniques. As the results, differences are revealed between <Sokmiingok> and <Samiingok>. The speaker in <Samiingok> has the feature of a passive and static old woman, while the speaker in <Sokmiingok> showing a positive and dynamic bride. It is thought that the three techniques effectively help to bring out a young mind, the intention that Song Gang has in his mind.
