Summary


HOMOSOCIAL DESIRE: RECONFIGURED MALE FRIENDSHIP IN KIM EUN SOOK’S DOKEBI: THE LONELY AND GREAT GOD

This paper aims to explore the representation of bromance in a South Korean drama, Dokebi: The Lonely and Great God, by Kim Eun Sook, a screenwriter as well as a playwright. Under a society constructed by patriarchal values, people, especially men, in South Korea develop an idiosyncrasy to internalize the psychic pressure, both socially and mentally, from the dominant ideology. The internalization of such masculinity, however, undergoes a series of transformation through the popularity of media. In Korean drama, men can freely express their feelings and even show intimate friendships with other straight men. The emotional bonding generated from homosocial desire between two men is known as brother romance or bromance. Thus, this paper will disclose male intimacy beyond heterosexual relations as well as present the effect surfacing in Korean society.
