The purpose of this paper is to suggest of possibility that 'Muaejihee' is a model of puppet play as 'Guakdokhee'. If 'Muaejihee' is accepted as a model of puppet play as 'Guakdokhee', it can fill up a vacancy on the history of east asia puppet play. So I made the discussion on the theme of this paper through three aspects tool, form and purpose of 'Muaejihee' with various documents of Korea and China. As a result, I could conclude my assumption that 'Muaejihee' is a model of puppet play as 'Guakdokhee' is very reasonable.In many aspects, there is no difference in the meanings of gourd as equipment for 'Muaejihee' and a word 'Gokdu' and 'Guakdok'. Both of 'Muaejihee' and 'Guakdokhee' have the same form of performance dancing and singing. And both of them have the same purpose of performance an idea of emptiness too.Finally, I thought if my suggestion is reasonable the historical value of 'Muaejihee' must be re-perceived and re-estimated.
