ABSTRACT

This article is to consider the current stage of translation into chinese, acceptance & the academic research of ‘Chunhyangjeon(춘향전)’ which is famous for representative classical story of Korea. Especially, ‘Chunhyangjeon’ was dramatically introduced to Chinese people through the performance of Yue drama ‘Chunhyangjeon’ in 1954, and then the study on ‘Chunhyangjeon’ was begun in earnst by Chinese researchers. This article is significant for examining the current stage of the research regarding ‘Chunhyangjeon’ through both doctoral and master’s theses and papers proposed in China. Such researches and essays, which include 1 doctoral thesis, 14 master’s theses, and about 46 excerpts from various academic journals, mainly focus on the characteristics of protagonists, language expressions, central theme, ethnic consciousness, and overall comparison of these aspects to those of Chinese literature or culture. As most of them have used comparative literature approach in researches of one of the most famous Korean classics, it is clear that since China-centered perspective already dominated the mainstream and Korea still plays a little role, a limit has been set along the outcome which may possibly be achieved in the future.
