  • This study aims to conduct research into the property of costumeplay that has been established with our unique characteristics despite the critics from the existing generation, and the cospre style preferred by costumeplayers. The research methods include literature study, existing research, and a survey targeting costumeplayers who make costumes upon order or borrow costumes on websites. The findings are as follows. 1. From the results of the survey, 77% of the participants in the costumeplay were secondary school students, 16% were college students, and 5% were primary school students. 2. The distribution of the residences of the costumeplayers was found to be mostly centered in two areas including Seoul/Gyeonggi and Gyeongsang/Busan, which were 39% and 37% each. This is probably because Seoul Comic and Busan Comic were regularly taking place, and these are relatively economically affluent areas and locations where the rapid exchange of Japanese culture occurs. 3. For the cospre style preferred by costumeplayers, 57% of respondents preferred costumes for reviving characters, 18% of them for fan-cospre and 14% of them for reviving a character and creating new characters. Costumeplayers preferred cospre costumes for reviving characters rather than for creating new characters. 4. Most respondents preferred a character-oriented design, posting 31.9%. Next, 17.5% of them selected the Lolita look This is probably because the Lolita look which is much favored in the latest fashion trends affects them, and the rest of the respondents preferred a fantasy/SF group, visual, uniform, and maid look, in order. 5. For costs required for costumeplay for 1 time, 39% of respondents spent about KRW $100,000{\sim}150,000$, and 24% of them about KRW $150,000{\sim}200,000$. However, for buying accessories or small items, over 50% of them spent KRW $30,000{\sim}40,000$.

  • The avatar can be used as an auxiliary methodology of text and image communications in cyber space. An intelligent communication method can also be utilized to achieve real-time communication, where intelligently coded data (joint angles for arm gestures and action units for facial emotions) are transmitted instead of real or compressed pictures. In this paper. for supporting the action of arm and leg gestures, a method of generating the facial expressions that can represent sender's emotions is provided. The facial expression can be represented by Action Unit(AU), in this paper we suggest the methodology of finding appropriate AUs in avatar models that have various shape and structure. And, to maximize the efficiency of emotional expressions, a comic-style facial model having only eyebrows, eyes, nose, and mouth is employed.

  • This paper examines how split-screen technique works to meet the goals and strategies of the narrative in the romantic comedy films which deal with love and sex. The plot of romantic comedy films aims to the union and marriage of the couple, but is structured to delay the union as much as possible through comical situations and episodes. Usually split-screen scenes are placed before plot point 2 and serve to make a laugh and humor. Besides, it helps focusing on two main characters. Comedy related to love and sex comes from information gap between two main characters which can cause a tension, double meaning of spoken words and combination of split-screen images. Michael Gordon's Pillow Talk(1959) and Peyton Reed's Down with Love(2003) are reviewed in this study.

  • Into the 1990s, there have been changes in perception of pop culture consumers by making a distinction between groups that are active, critical and creative. This study aims to establish a theoretical reasoning for conventions organized and participated voluntarily by fans, which has been especially noticeable in the American subculture for a long time, while investigating how fans and all the parties concerned interact at conventions then to expand the imaginary world. To this end, an analysis has been carried out on the conventions for the particular American TV series of Supernatural. The results show that the reason for this drama series maintaining such enduring vitality as if a living thing is attributable to the special bond of sympathy developed between fans and actors and the following interactions between them. Furthermore, in the aspect of cultural sociology, a piece of work can only be completed through unconstrained interpretation of the work and the resultant recreation by the creator and the receiver, which has been ascertained by this study.

  • The objective of this study was to explore the humorous scenes shown in animation such as types of humor, frequency of humor, hours of humor, and correlation between subject of humor and supporting role. As the subjects of research, this study selected and that recorded the ten-times different number of audiences even though both works were produced by the same studio called 'Odolttogi'. In the results of analyzing those two works, there were differences. Drawing the characteristics of humor, the frequency of humor should be a lot more shown in the early to mid part than the latter part, and there should be diverse types of humor. And the frequency of humor by main characters should be increased. When the types of supporting roles were more diverse, the tendency of humor was also shown diversely. Also, the humor that was formed within relationships of characters was more effective than the humor formed alone. Through the slapstick or linguistic comedy in which such interactions are shown into actions, more diverse verbal plays could be shown. These elements could make it possible for animated works to diversely express more creative and funnier scenes of humor.

  • In this article, I analyze Korean Dong-in culture and its relationship with Yaoi, focusing on the changes in the 1990s. While Korean Dong-in culture has developed under the influence of Japanese Dojin culture, it is not well-known that Korean Dong-in culture has its own characteristics, reflecting the unique situations surrounding the Korean society. The reason that I pay attention to the changes in the 1990s is that they have created the foundation of the current Korean dong-in culture through changes such as the import and reception of Yaoi, the creation of 'virtual community' in PC telecommunication, the enforcement of Juvenile Protection Law, and the inauguration of 'Comic World,' Among them, the import and reception of Yaoi, a genre characterized by homosexuality including sexual relationship and fanwork, played a decisive role in the change of dong-in culture from manwha circle by highly motivated amatuer artists to fandom. The circumstances that original manhwa dong-in by manwha circle and Yaoi by manhwa fandom coexisted by the mid-1990s, the enforcement of Juvenile Protection Law and the lift of ban on Japanese popular culture rapidly weakened original manhwa dong-in. Also, the popularity of Comic World as a new type of dong-in events reflected the spread of fanwork as a new trend of Korean dong-in. In summary, the import and reception of Yaoi should be considered as one of the important changes in the 1990s Korean Dong-in culture, because 1) Korean women considered Yaoi as a liberating subculture by its powerful contents-homosexuality with sexual relationship, and 2) Yaoi succeeded in attracting new population favoring fanwork as a major trend in Korean Dong-in, differentiated from original manhwa circle population.
