Chung, Mi-Khang & Kim, Young-Soon, 2007. The Study of Kinesic Storytelling for Image Literacy: Focusing on the Movie <The Host>. This paper is to explore how to organize nonverbal signs in movie texts. For this, we intend to define the conception of kinesic storytelling which is a kind of visual storytelling. And we attempt to analyze visual image. Visual image is constituted to be able to produce a story. It is nonverbal rather than verbal. Therefore, kinesic storytelling, the narrative activity through body movement, is the noticeable conception for analysis of visual image.Accordingly, this study classifies the kinesic storytelling as three types of expression of characters, organic narrative and emotional response and then analyzes the kinesics of the movie <The Host>. For analysis of kinesic, we introduce Birdwhistell and Barthes's conception. Birdwhistell's conception of ‘kineme’ and ‘kinemorph’ are for analysis of external elements, and Barthes's conception of ‘denotation’ and ‘connotation’ are for analysis of semiotic system. As the results of the analysis, the technique of kinesic storytelling for production of characters is divided into characterization, emotional description, and psychological description, storytelling for organic narrative is divided into foreshadowing, preparation and probability, and kinesic storytelling for emotional response is divided into humor and emotional impact.
