ABSTRACT

Printed classical novels appearing in the early 1910s showed diverse variations as the result of combining new media and traditional contents. Comparing the adapted versions of a representative classic novel, Chunhyangjeon by Lee Hae-jo, Choi Nam-seon, and Park Geon-hoe, concrete scenes of such variations can be found. Lee Hae-jo filled his adapted version with traditional emotion of familism in a new medium, and Choi Nam-seon included new content in his version while he insisted on seeking for the original copy similar to the aboriginal version. And Park Geon-hoe tried to reflect various cultures on his book but he failed to liquidate hereditary Sino-Korean culture. This difference came from adapters’ distinctive perceptions on the weights of both the medium and the content when they combined them. Eventually, it can be said that in the process of transferring the memory of the culture in the previous era to a practice of publication act, different publicationswere yielded according to what their attitudes of the past and perceptions of cultural continuance were like. Readers’ responding difference to the adapted versions was the outcome of reflecting public preference towards such variations.
