Abstract

The purpose of this study is to know the bi-language mask of Tcheonzamun expression; the real meaning. The researchers utilized two methods: interpretation through Korean pronunciation and  utilization of Chinese character.  The aim of this work is to explain in plain terms the title of this work, ‘As the miserable and fungus-like small plant becomes a big and favourite tree’.  The researchers tried to know the meaning of ‘BiPa’ in the poem.  And the researchers considered that it was a weapon that seemed to be more efficient than the weapons of other countries at that time.

Key words: Maeg people, Tcheonzamun (The Thousand Character Essay), 753rd to 768th characters, stand straight.
