ABSTRACT

This study is a discussion to find strategies to build humanistic cultural content through Shinjae Choi San-du's classical Chinese poetry works. The value orientation of human life revealed in his works was discussed in connection with humanistic cultural content. First, we examined the circumstances of the times in which Choi San-du lived and his spiritual orientation. Through the classical Chinese poems included in his “Shinjae-jip (新齋集)”, we examined his career from the time he passed the exam for the civil service rank of Jinsa at the age of 22 to the time he passed the Irregular Civil Service Exam at the age of 31. When the Gajasahwa (甲子士禍; Gapja year literati's political disaster) occurred in 1504 (10th Year of King Yonsangun), when Choi San-du was 21 years old, his teacher Kim Gweng-pil was executed at Suncheon. It was only natural that the disaster would reach Choi San-du, a disciple of Kim Gweng-pil. Through his classical Chinese poetry “Cheon-ja-am-rim-u-ryeong (天子菴霖雨?)”, it was possible to estimate that he stayed at Cheonja-am temple in Yieup-myeon, Seungju-gun for his lost nine years. We explored the semantic net of love for nature and humanity appearing in Choi San-du's classical Chinese poetry works and established a strategy to build humanistic cultural content. Gwangyang-city is a complex city where urban, agriculture, and industry are combined due to rapid industrialization. Social class conflicts among local residents are intensifying. In this regard, the intention was to find a way to encourage their pride and love for their hometown. It was discussed that this lies in revitalizing humanistic cultural content with the goal of orienting the value of human life by exploring humanistic qualities. Through this study, it will have an impact on restoring local residents' sense of cultural alienation, enhancing their self-esteem, and improving their understanding of cultural communication in the humanities. In addition, it will be an avenue for establishing a cultural community cooperation system between rural and urban areas through healing the mind and body of local residents and sharing humanistic knowledge.
