In this article, I tried to explain the relation between Yadam and Kyounghwasejok(京華世族). There are many Yadam anthology editors who belong to Kyounghwasejok. Imbang(任埅), Immae(任邁), Lee Hyipeong(李羲平), Lee Wyonmoung(李源命), Lee Hyonki(李玄綺) belong to Kyounghwasejok. No Myongheom(盧命欽) and Seo Yuyeong(徐有英) don't belong to Kyounghwasejok, but they are closely related to the people of Kyounghwasejok Imbang, Immae, Lee Hyipeong, Lee Wyonmoung represented the cultural experience of their own group in the boundary of their own class. By comparison, Lee Hyonki showed a very critical perspective toward the world view of Kyounghwasejok in their own ordinary life boundary.
No Myongheom was faithful in portraying the mood of the storytelling space of Hong Bonghan's family. Seo Yuyeong was eager to represent the inclination of the members of Hong Sanhan's family who had strong aspiration towards literature.
Yadam as the representative literary genre of Late Chosun Dynasty was based on the experience of people in Late Chosun society. But Yadam anthologies whose editors had intimate relationship with Kyounghwasejok moved to the opposite direction of reality where benevolence and destiny had crucial power. This change was caused by the world view of Kyounhwasejok.
On the contrary, An Seokgeong who edited Sapgyomanrok and Lee Donyun who edited Paksochonwha din't belong to Kyounghwasejok. They empathized the hegemonical ideology. Specially, they discriminated the peoples who participated in the political rebellion.
Yadam as a narrative genre began to accept the importance of human desire and acknowledge the necessity of fulfilling the desire.
However, in the process of recording by the editors of Kyounghwasejok, Yadam's contents and form were transformed. Destiny and benevolence became overestimated. As Kyounghwasejok participated in the recording and editing Yadam, these kinds of change appeared. As a result, the conflict between desire and destiny, human being and superior being, secular and unworldliness emerged as a significant part in Yadam anthology.
