ABSTRACT

This article examines how the Qing Dynasty general YongGolDae(1596-1648), who was at the center of the ByeongJaHoRan, was embodied in the narrative literature of the late Joseon Dynasty. As is well known, the YongGolDae is the main character of the ByeongJaHoRan, the one who inflicted great wounds on Joseon. To the Koreans, he was the object of fear. However, in Korean classical narrative literature, he is not only portrayed as a threat. By bringing historical events to the stage of the narrative, the victorious general YongGolDae is replaced by the defeated, and he is portrayed from a perspective other than the winner and loser composition. This proves that the figure of the YongGolDae has changed in a variety of ways within the broad spectrum of narrative literature of empirical and fictional narratives, and that the perception of YongGolDae and war has changed in the process. In order to examine this aspect, in this article, the characteristic aspects of the works in which the YongGolDae appears, ranging from works that correspond to empirical narratives to classical novels and tales have been derived.
