ABSTRACT

The Chosun Yadam is universal in that Chosum Yadam accepted and transformed the old narratives and utilized the framing structure. On the other hand Chosun Yadam is idiosyncratic in that it has Chosun ideology and all the characteristics of the transition from the medieval into the modern, just like the Decameron and Samuon, Yipak. The editors of Chosum Yadam made loose interventions in the process of gathering and recording the oral Yadam stories. Consequently Chosun Yadam contains not only the world view of the editors but also their individual and class ideology. On the contrary, the writers of Decameron, Samuon and Yipak, made active intervention in editing process with the intention of reinventing works. The looseness of narrative form of Yadam was appropriate to accept diverse viewpoints. Narrating self experiences in Chosun Yadam is one the most prominent characteristics that separates Yadam from foreign narratives. This narrative method is more suitable for incorporating and fictionalizing actual experiences. Through the narrative form, Chosun Yadam was able to acquire the broad narrative world that mingles real and imaginary experiences. In reality though, that narrative form had not been much utilized due to the lack of writers Optimism, Perseverance, and neighborly friendship are ideas that penetrate Chosun Yadam. Patriarchical familism is at the center of its foundation. Familism helps trust and support among family members distinctively inscribed in Yadam, becoming the cornerstone that generate a variety of values in Chosun Yadam. Popular ideals of the people and Confucius ideology of the Sadaebu coexist in Yadam. In Chosun Yadam Confucius ideology of the Sadaebu works along with internalized Confucius ideology of the people. Globalization of Yadam requires two distinctive tasks. First, we should make Yadam global literature by translating them into foreign languages. Then it can be easily transformed into a variety of cultural contents. Second, narrative discourse of Yadam should be introduced into the universal narrative discourse
