Abstract

The central purpose of this research is to probe the connection between Choe Seung-hui and the modern. The life of Choe Seung-hui, more than any other, must be understood under the larger rubric of the modern period and structure. Choe Seung-hui, who was dubbed the dancer of the peninsula, Korean dancer, and the world dancer, was, without question, the most famous figure of that period. How can Choe Seung-huis success be explained? Her success is intimately linked with to modern conditions, and her life offers an important clue in shedding light on how she and her contemporaries experienced modernity both as a system and as an ideology. Choe Seung-hui is both a single individual and a complex icon produced by numerous audiences, critics, and the spirit of that period.Based on existing research, this paper attempts to connect the visual, the nucleus of the modern experience, with Choe Seung-huis dance and her life. In other words, Choe Seung-hui lived the most spectacular life of that period, and through her we can arrive at an understanding of what it meant to be a spectacle, and examine the rise and power of the spectacle within the space of the modern.
