The Erotic Gyeongsung from the perspective of Japanese in Joseon: Space
Author : Sun-Yoon Lee et al.
Publisher : Moon
Date : 2012
This book provides a sketch of the urban space of Gyeongsung, a city that had just begun to take on the features of a consumer city since the Japanese annexation of Korea. Drawing from magazine articles written from the viewpoint of the Japanese living in Gyeongsung, it describes the social changes of the time. Consumer culture was largely based on services involving the female body, which led to an increase in “cafes” both in Tokyo and Gyeongsung. The book also brings light to new consumer spaces such as department stores and hotels, while also drawing attention to spaces such as lodgings for laborers occupied by the less fortunate class.
