Abstract
This study attempts to reconstitute the life history of Choi Seung-il(崔承一,
1901-?), one of the famous Korean literati under colonial Korea. It
especially focuses on his media career. As did his many fellows, Choi
played an active part in a diversity of media and cultural areas. During the
period of 1920s and 1930s, he held various positions (magazine editor,
writer, drama director, radio program director, stage manager, etc.) with
socialist orientation in Korean cultural scene. He also wrote several
‘modernologist’ essays on the media culture in Gyeongseong. However, he
became a ‘pro-Japanese’ film producer in the late 1930’s, and produced
Volunteer, a militarist propaganda movie. We assume that Choi’s media
career and writings reveal, beyond his personal idiosyncrasy, the specific
relationship between colonial media space and the intelligentsia. In this
context, we try to clarify this relationship, conceptualizing media space as
an important ‘structural opportunity space’ and ‘phenomenological
space of experience’ for the colonial intelligentsia. Choi’s life history
clearly shows how the colonial intelligentsia continued to reconstruct the
media space by his thoughts and activities.
