ABSTRACT

This study attempts to shed new light in regards to comicality in Saseol-sijo while focusing on the human body. While it is true that there have been many advances on studies related to comicality in Saseol-sijo, there is still much to explore on fields of the unknown. Because the materialization of comicality depends on historical and cultural situations as well as the genre of literature, the subject must be approached from multiple aspects. As one of the ways to approach this subject, I have selected to analyse comic subjects, while paying attention to physical symbols. In particular, the interrelationship between the body and mind, the correlation between the human body and objects, and a detailed analysis by dividing motives into transformation and disguise. The results showed that comic subjects were composed of the following aspects; first, satirical mocking; Second, humorous jokes; and third, complex comedy. There are a number of varieties of laughter, and the comedy can be manifested differently depending on how it is received, and the subjective mentality of its viewers. In conclusion, there is not only a need for the systematization of the macroscopic structure of comicality when explaining comicality in Saseol-sijo, but also for diverse research on unknown conditions of text, reactions of views, other aspects.
