This essay is focused on reinterpreting the aspect of troubles in Pyunkangsoi-ga변강쇠가. Kangsoi is a main character that makes troubles with other characters, that is, Ongnyu옹녀, Changseung장승, Tepdeuki뎁득이 etc.Kangsoi was born a farmer. But he had not even a slice of land, so he became a scamp and could not help but wander. Kangsoi met Ongnyu, who is regarded as a land to him. Kangsoi’s addiction to making love to Ongnyu represents a desire to satisfy his attachment to a land. Therefore, we can say that many wanderers died from Kangsoi’s jealousy fell victims to his attachment to a land.Changseung is a landmark and palys a role of a deity protecting village and its people. However Changseung invited Kangsoi's hostility in two sides. Being a landmark, Changseung irritated sadness in the heart of Kangsoi as a wanderer. And Changseung as a protecting deity was the personification of the upper ruling class to Kangsoi. That is the reason why Kangsoi cut Changseung and burned it.In the latter half of the work, Tepdeuki take the place of Ongnyu. But he didn’t make any role in the resolving Kangsoi’s desire. So he was in trouble, too. A dead body of Kangsoi attached to earth meant his desire unsatisfied.Having views on the trouble of characters centered on Kangsoi in Pyunkangsoi-ga, we can be aware that its story is consistent and unified.
