  • State-Building Discourse and the Failed Commemoration of the March First
           Independence Movement during the Liberation Period in Korea

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: The March First Independence Movement (Sam-il undong) was a significant event in colonial Korean society, substantially shifting power relations between the colonizers and the colonized. The movement inculcated ordinary nationalism and recognition of Korean nationality, while also evoking a discursive shift about the system of Japanese occupation (Yi H. 2009; Pak and Ryu 2009). After the March First Movement, Koreans began agonizing over how to once again marshall the strength that the movement had temporarily mobilized. Meanwhile, the Japanese authorities attempted to integrate Koreans into their colonial system by manipulating cultural institutions and policies. The March First Movement inspired Koreans to think ... Read More

  • Formation of the Modern Detective Novel and the Imagination of Crime
           Narratives in Korea and China in the Early 20th Century

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Murder cases have been common since remote antiquity. However, stories about why the murder victim died, how the crime was concealed, and who the murderer was emerged in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries in the guise of mystery fiction.1 Murder cases became the subject of exciting and entertaining reading that developed into a literary genre for refined tastes, as expressed in the titles of important works dealing with the history of mystery fiction, such as Howard Haycraft's Murder for Pleasure ([1941] 1951) and Ernest Mandel's Delightful Murder ([1984] 2001). Crime and detective narratives are relatively recent products of the modern era, reflecting the birth of popular and universal imagination (Park 2018 ... Read More

  • Attribution of Sijo Song Authorship to Historical Figures: Sijo of Late
           Goryeo and Early Joseon

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: When observing the history of sijo 時調, a traditional Korean lyric genre, the sijo songs from the late Goryeo (918–1392) and early Joseon (1392–1897) periods stand out. Prominent sijo authors include Jeong Mongju 鄭夢周 (1337–1392) and Gil Jae 吉再 (1353–1419), who were Goryeo loyalists, and Seong Sammun 成三問 (1418–1456) and Pak Paengnyeon 朴彭年 (1417–1456), members of the Sayuksin 死六臣, the six martyred statesmen who remained loyal to King Danjong (r. 1452–1455).1 The sijo songs of these authors demonstrate significance and dimensionality in relation to well-known historical figures and events. The following sijo titled "Baengnoga" 白鷺歌 (Song of the heron) is an example:My white heron, do not go to the valley where the ... Read More

  • Korea and the Fall of the Mongol Empire: Alliance, Upheaval, and the Rise
           of a New East Asian Order by David M. Robinson (review)

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Ilsoo David Cho has already reviewed David M. Robinson's Korea and the Fall of the Mongol Empire, and his review, capturing all the main points of the book, has come out a few weeks ago. Thus, I find it better to ask some questions instead of repeating the same story. Jung Donghun, who studies Goryeo Korea-Mongol Yuan relations, has indicated that many of the conventions that gradually developed into institutions constituting the protocols of the tribute-investiture relationship in the later period, precisely during the Ming and Qing periods, were established during the Yuan period. Then, it is very likely that the reign of Goryeo King Wang Gi (r. 1351–74) would have also been marked with events and occasions that ... Read More

  • Carving Status at Kŭmgangsan: Elite Graffiti in Premodern Korea by
           Maya K. H. Stiller (review)

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Why were so many names written on a mountain' Why and how do we study and interpret inscriptions on rocks' Maya Stiller's book seeks answers to these questions through a detailed analysis of thousands of autographic rock inscriptions scattered in Kŭmgangsan, one of the most celebrated mountains in Korean history among religious pilgrims and literati visitors. Based on multidisciplinary research of literary texts, court documents, local gazetteers, maps, songs, calligraphy, and paintings, Stiller's study eloquently presents the significant role of inscriptions on stone embedded in a landscape as an index of social memory construction and competition for social recognition (p.104).Stiller's delicate readings of ...

  • Note from the Editor

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: With this edition serving as the first of the journal to appear with me as editor, I want to thank Prof. Sem Vermeersch of SNU for his extensive help as I have encountered, and continue to have, many questions throughout the process. Previously an Associate Editor at the journal, and teaching at the Department of Korean History at SNU since 2018, I had little idea of how much additional work goes on "behind the scenes" into transforming a diverse collection of submissions and book reviews into a journal, yielding if not a single overarching theme, then certainly a set of related concerns and questions. Along with Prof. Vermeersch, I also want to thank Kyujanggak, and its entire staff, for undertaking the bulk of ... Read More

  • Limits to Sinocentrism: Persistence of Nativist Discourses of Identity in
           Joseon Korea

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Over the past decades, scholars have revealed the enormous impact of Mongol hegemony in shaping history after it. Once imagined as a merely destructive interlude of a fleeting nature, scholars have reframed the period of Mongol dominance over much of Eurasia as something pivotal to the developments of almost all societies that came after the Mongol empire (Bentley 1996; Weatherford 2004; Jackson 2005; 2017; H. Kim 2009; Di Cosmo 2010). Such a trend is also noticeable in studying China and Korea's history. For instance, scholars have long interpreted the Chinese overthrow of the Mongol Yuan (1271–1368) primarily as an event that eliminated Mongol influence and restored ethnic Han rule over China. More recently ... Read More
