“Are you a 16-year-old girl?”… Controversy over the newly painted portrait of Chunhyang ‘Eou-dong’

Controversy over the portrait of Chunhyang, which was newly메이저사이트 painted to replace the portrait of Chunhyang that was demolished due to controversy over pro-Japanese controversy, is not abating. It is pointed out that the appearance of a teenage girl with braided hair is not visible, and it is reminiscent of ‘Eou-dong’ in her 40s and 50s.

On the 1st, Korean traditional musicians such as Shin Young-hee, a human cultural asset, held a press conference at Namwon City Hall and urged that the portrait of Chunhyang be redrawn and enshrined.

In a statement, they pointed out about the new portrait of Chunhyang, saying, “It has a huge virtual face on its shoulder, the face is a woman dressed as a man, and it looks like an old woman in her 40s and 50s who cannot be seen as a 16-year-old, and the clothes are reminiscent of Eou-dong.”

As a 16- to 18-year-old girl with braided hair and a representative female figure, people expected a portrait loved by the whole nation, but it is pointed out that the new portrait with the veil off is too contrary to this.

Gugak performers said, “Namwon City, Namwon Cultural Center, and members of the promotion committee said that they had seen the process of drawing the portrait three times, but that the enshrinement was enshrined as it was (without modification). It is not possible,” he criticized.

“We, the pansori singers who revived Chunhyang as a world-class figure with the Pansori Chunhyangga, can absolutely accept Kim Hyeon-cheol’s picture as Chunhyang, who has a manly face in his 40s and 50s, and wears a costume reminiscent of Eou-dong. No,” he raised his voice.

When the portrait of Chunhyang, which was previously enshrined in Chunhyang Shrine, was found to be the work of pro-Japanese artist Kim Eun-ho, it was demolished in October 2020 and a new portrait was produced. The new portrait was commissioned by Namwon City and commissioned by Namwon Cultural Center to artist Kim Hyeon-cheol, and 170 million won was invested. Although efforts were made to reflect the times of the time as much as possible through historical research, the new portrait has been subject to strong criticism from local civic groups right after its release.
