ABSTRACT

This paper examines Honam-exiled figures and the literary documents left by them and briefly proposed cultural contentsization as their utilization measures. First, Honam-exiled 928 figures were examined by time and region. By time, there was one in the 7th century; six in the 12th century; eight in the 13th century; 26 in the 14th century; 114 in the 15th century; 76 in the 16th century; 112 in the 17th century; 274 in the 18th century; 279 in the 19th century; and 32 in the 20th century. Most of the exiles were found to have lived in the Joseon period. By region, there was nine in Gwangju, accounting for less than 1%; 685 or 67% in Jeollanam-do; 83 or 8% in Jeollabuk-do; 239 or 23% in Jeju. In addition, it was confirmed that, inn Jeollanam-do with many exiles, exiles concentrated in some islands such as Jeju, Sinan, Jino and Wando. Of literary documents left by Honam-exiled figures, noteworthy documents were found to be literary collections, diaries and poem collections. In particular, for literary collections, 106 kinds were found. Literary collections included classical Chinese poems in the form of poem records, letters exchanged between people in the exile areas, diaries, and pleas to the kings in connection with exiles. There was also a few collections of Gasa (a form of poetry) on exiles. Diaries offered a vivid look into the specific life and feelings of exiles, make them worthy of use. In addition, literary collections of Sijo and Gasa (types of poetry) written by exiles in Honam, as well as academic writings authored by exiles were found to be very valuable data. Lastly, cultural contentsization examined as the proposed measure for using Honam-exiled figures’ literary documents. This is because the demand for cultural contents is high in contemporary times and Honam-exiled figures’ literary documents can play a significant role in cultural contentsization. As a result of examining cultural contents by citing specific examples of Honam-exiled figures’ literary documents, it is confirmed that they are highly applicable in the media contents, tourism contents, and educational contents areas.
