ABSTRACT

“Hanyangga” is a work that deals with the customs and culture of Hanyang, the capital of Joseon, and is a Gasa that details the appearance of Hanyang in the 19th century. The content composition of “Hanyangga” can be largely divided into “Palace and Government Office”, “Market and Play”, and “the king's march and examination”. One characteristic of this content composition is that the development of the work revolves around the movement of space at the beginning and then gradually changes around the actions and rituals of the characters. The fact that the content composition of “Hanyangga” exhibits this form should be understood in relation to the enjoyment class. Hansan Geosa, known as the author of “Hanyangga”, is estimated to be the intermediate class of Seoul, such as Byeolgam, who lived in Seoul in the 19th century. This argument is supported by the fact that the description of a military officer in the work is detailed and occupies a large amount in the description. If you look more closely at the contents of the work, it can be seen that the enjoyment of “Hanyangga” is the intermediate class, including independents such as the annex of the late Joseon Dynasty, and includes lower-level manage- ment positions that perform royal rituals. Looking at these enjoyment groups, from the perspective of the time, “Hanyangga” is not just a Gasa that sings Hanyang's pungmul, but a work that evokes empathy within the same group by sharing memories and emotions about real experiences in the space of Hanyang. In addition, “Hanyangga” seems to have been used as a functional role for contemporary figures as anyone can access the contents of activities taking place in Hanyang without time and space constraints through “Hanyangga”.
