In the first, we tried to focus on analyzing images of America and of Korea in American novels. Kwon, Teck Young wrote "Korea in American novels: repetitive images in Jack London's "Korean Episode" and in Theresa Hakyoung Cha's Dictée" and "Enlightenment and Negativity: The Korean Images Portrayed in Mao 2 and Native Speaker", and Choi, Kangmin wrote "Images of Korea and America in Korean-American novels of first generation writers."
In her first article, Kwon tried to find out the Korean traumatic scars revealed in Dictée from "Korean Episode" and its related materials from Herbert's book. Kwon analyzed aspects of factious quarrels, oppositions of North and South, their repetitive martyrs of blood, and their contemporary party squabbles from those two works, and she criticized the reasons of fraction from the lack of co-exist consciousness for the other people. And Choi argued that the first generation writers of Korean-American literature had reconfirmed or strengthened the formulas of Orientalism for the Westerns, which had identified West with civilization, male, and with adult, and identified Orient with savageness, female, and with boy. From Choi's assertion, the West revealed as the ruling subject that had power, and the Orient revealed as the silent ruled other that didn't have the spoken language.
The second analyses were focused on the Korean images in Japanese literature. as in Lee, Jae-sung's article "the image of Korea and Chosun after post-colonial Japanese literature", and Kang, Jin-koo's two articles for "the study of Korean symbol systems appeared in post-war Japanese literature", and as in Kim, Min-A's "A Study on the image of Korea and Korean in Chiba Ryotaro's works." Lee analyzed the images of Chosun and Korea from the works of Chiba Ryotaro and of Endo Shusakue. Kang studied Kazyama's work, and he revealed that Kazyama had perverted the images of Chosun as primitive and uncivilized space, and he, Kazyama, had set up the composition of the guardian Japanese(male) and of the protected Chosun people(female), and from those composition he rationalized the colonial governance of Japan, and represented Korean-Japanese as a negative figures. Kim anlalyzed the works of Chiba Ryotaro, who had been admired and had influenced Japanese soul, and commented that Ryotaro had also criticized Korea and Korean with euphemistic tone, and the reason for that criticism was from the influence of Confucian ideals. Kim also commented that Ryotaro's work had been formed as extremely Japanese viewpoint, and his work didn't have the trials for finding the archetypes of Chosun, but had tried to set up their Korean images that had already fixed up in Japanese mind.
And the third analyses focused on the formation process of subject in Korean literature, and on the Korean analyses for the foreigners. Park, Myoungjin wrote "the represented symbol image of race and ethnics in the Korean liberation period," "the optical unconsciousness of history drama: the study of racial epic and represented image." And Choi, Kangmin wrote "the cross-over gaze of marginal man: from the Orient to the West." Park studied the national foundation and pay-off process from the vestiges of Japanese imperialism in Korea after the emancipation of the Japanese colony in the first article, and he criticized facts that the hardships of Chosun people in colonial age had replaced with the justification for the construction of proletarian nation, and the facts that in some case Chosun prostitute had even been made ill use of rewarding for the nation's purity and orthodoxy which had been hurt by the Japanese imperialism. And Park also asserted that we rarely had the examples of concrete and practical historical intervention for the nation, race, or nation, people, and for the femininity in the post-war drama, from the fact that post-war writers had tried to erase the memory of colonization from the understanding of Japanese woman and Korean man.
