Understanding <Hwangjo-ga> record in 《Samguk Sagi》 from a Ritual point of viewShin Yeon WuThere could be various way to understand ancient literary works. <Hwangjo-ga> is one of it and it is difficult to realize the real meaning, so lots of studies have been piled up. 1 took that record as a written expression of a rite at that time. I dealt it with succeeding records, Myth of Chumong and the record of King Taemusin the 3rd King of Koguryo.In result I realized <Hwangjo-ga> represented the role of The Great Mother of Grain which Yuhwa have had in the myth of Chumong. As Yuri was the successor to so Hwahi and Chihi was to Yhuwa, the Great Mother. The dispute of two was the symbolic expression of the Grain-god which has opposite function ; leaving in autumn, the season of harvest, and returning in spring, the season of seeding. The division of the two is ritual and symbolic separation aiming ai the Ultimate Union of nature and Abstract right, so to speak. he woman who had the wondrous pot which was enabled to feed thousands of soldiers at the same time seemd a transformation of Yuhwa The Great Grain god, too.As people don't believe mythical thought it was curtailed. People lost the ritual meaning and <Hwangjo-ga> was accepted as a pure lyrical song. In the time of late Koryo, the Author of 《Samguk Sagi》as a authentic Confucianist, Kim Pusik had a great role to disrupt the traditional customs of the Old time.
