- This study is to identify the injustices of 'a theory of modernization of colony', by way of Folkloristics's viewpoint, which suggests that the Japanese ruling over Korea contributed to the industrialization of Korea. Focused on the studies of Akiba Takashi(秋葉隆), one of the most active researchers on the Chosun folklore in that period, this study finds out the false arguments or suggestions of that theory.
He carried out a research work to back up a theoretical framework of Divide and Rule from the side of Folkloristics, which aimed at an efficient ruling over Chosun by the Japanese Government General of Korea. He also tried to prove out that, by comparing Japanese folklore in older times with Chosun folklore, Chosun remains in the state of underdevelopment, not emerging from aboriginality and backwardness. His emphasis on the aboriginality and backwardness was a means to prove a legitimacy that it is natural that more developed Japan rules Chosun. And also, he emphasized that Chosun denied its own uniqueness, and that only played a role of a bridge to pass over the Chinese culture to the Japan islands.
In conclusion, since his researches and investigations were for the Unification of Japan and Korea, by which Japan tried to assimilate Chosun people into Japan forcedly, after all, he was a scholar who kept taking a throughly imperialistic stance in his studies. And furthermore, as he bent on finding out and collecting not materials on the realities but the backwardness of Chosun folklore, it can be said that he took an attitude to uphold the banner of ruling over colony.
