ABSTRACT

This paper focused on three Chinese Dongkuk Gisa book lists compiled by intellectuals in the late Joseon Dynasty. Lee Deok-moo(李德懋)’s Hwaingi Dongsa(華人記東事), Han Chi-yoon(韓致奫)’s Dongguk Gisa(東國記事) and Lee Kyu-kyung(李圭景)’s Jungwon Gi Dongsa(中原記東事) contain specialized books on the Korean Peninsula compiled by Chinese intellectuals. Lee Deok-moo’s Hwaingigidongsa contained 22 kinds of books, and Han Chi-yoon’s Dongguk Gisa collected 59 kinds of books. Lee Kyu-kyung’s Jungwon Gi Dongsa contained 23 kinds of books and inherited the contents of Lee Deok-moo’s books. Re-segmenting the literature contained in these books identifies the types of Korean Peninsula encyclopedia, administrative records and observations, books related to the institution of the Korean Peninsula, books on the art of war, poetry collections, and history books. And if you look at the narrative system, it can be said that Lee Deok-moo’s book list belongs to the Joseon-centered narrative system. Han Chi-yoon and Lee Kyu-kyung’s book list showed efforts to objectify their perception of their country in the East Asian Chinese character civilization beyond the Joseon-centered narrative system and can be said to belong to an objective narrative system. Through these three book lists, it was possible to see the process of intellectuals in the late Joseon Dynasty building an objective narrative system for their country. On the other hand, the collection of Chinese Dongkuk Gisa book lists written by Joseon intellectuals will be evaluated as valuable data showing their own perception and data that can help us explore the origin of the establishment of Korean studies in China.
