ABSTRACT

The purpose of this paper is to consider the life and study of An Bang-jun(安邦俊) who lived during the period of historic upheaval in the late 16th and early 17th centuries as Honamsalim(湖南士林), and to examine the figure of Oryun(五倫) and its meanings embodied in Oryunga(五倫歌), by relating this to the creation of Chinese poem. Furthermore, this study will reveal the significance of his Oryunga(五倫歌) in terms of the history of Oryunsiga(五倫詩歌). An Bang-jun(安邦俊) was a moralist who worked hard to stay home, improve his studies and train his mind, rather than go into government service. In particular, he emphasized Dokhaeng(篤行) which practice his realization through reading and lecturing in his study. Thus, he who was maintaining the moral center of pratice, created Oryunga(五倫歌) to solve the problem about the losing of the principle of the world and the human nature being soiled. This encouraged him and his students to practice in order to teach later students academic indicators by shaping the ethics of practice, Oryun(五倫), in Chinese poem. Oryunga(五倫歌) consisted of Oryun(五倫) one after another. Especially in the case of Elders first, it was divided into the ethics between teacher and student, and ethics between older brother and younger brother. This was the result of recognizing the ethics of Elders first as an important ethical norm that should be nurtured in terms of knowledge and blood-related communities, with the aim of strengthening strengthen ties or unite groups within local scholar groups or their own families. Therefore, Chinese poem Oryunga(五倫歌) has a similar aspect to Sijo(時調) in its composition. In addition, unlike the formative style embodied in the Sijo(時調), the chinese poem presented a justifiable proposition with a focus on the principle that the subordinate should have in human relations, and was enhancing the effect of delivering lessons by citing the biography of the person who performed positive or negative acts. This was similar to the writing style of a book like Dongmongseonseup(童蒙先習), chinese poem Oryunga(五倫歌) is meaningful in that it has strengthened its legitimacy as a practical ethics by presenting the key elements of each item of Oryun(五倫) in a compressed manner, replacing the scriptures described in prose.
