ABSTRACT

This paper examines the nature of Kim Chang-up's interest in the old monk of Kaksansa(角山寺) in China, in relation to the historical background at the times. Kim Chang-up's interest in the old monk results in interpreting him as an anti-Ching[反淸] Han Chinese[漢人] man who can possibly sympathize with Kim's anti-Ching sentiment. However, this paper has found that Kim's understanding is an over-interpretation arisen from his lifelong desire to meet the Han race[漢人] anti-Ching activist in the Yeon-Kye[燕薊]area. Throughout this, it can be concluded that Kim Chang-up has been fettered by the anti-Ching ideology even after his trip to China. Also Kim's mentality shows one aspect of tangled emotions toward the Ching dynasty that prevailed among Chosun scholar gentry.
