- This paper critically accepted Giorgio Agamben’s theory and applied it to Korean literary work: The folk tale of Wukmyeon in the Buddhist era, Boeun-giu-rok in the Confucian era, Namaste in modern times.
There are opposition between human order and divine order in King Gyeongdeok era. It is possible to be excluded by sovereign power in human order but is not possible to be homo sacer through sacrificial rite in divine order. Wukmyeon is a homo sacer whois excluded by sovereign power. However, in the temple that the authority of Buddha far surpass King’s, she is practicing asceticism to escape from homo sacer, and to become a Buddha.
In the order of the family in which Confucian mythology operates, Yeoncheong Wi, hero in Boeun-giu-rok, is homo sacer who can be assaulted and deported by his father, and can be killed by law and culture based on Confucian ideology at that time. However, outside of the order of the family, he is the ideal pursuing the moral and ethics of Confucianism. So, Yeoncheong Wi escapes from homo sacer and passes the state examination, and makes a lot of money and reconciles with his father.
Kamil, hero in Namaste, is homo sacer who is thoroughly excluded by the sovereign power and Korean people who have a strong ethnic myth and exclusiveness. Kamil resists against the sovereign power through various types of action in order to escape from homo sacer. However, no change at all, he eventually suicides himself.
