dc.description.abstract The purpose of this study was to assist the promotion of the uniqueness and originality of Korean dance culture by comparing it to Japanese dance. This study found that there were many common features in the historical background and social recognitions between Korean dance "Ipchoom" and Japanese dance "Kabuki."The conspicuous common feature was that in both artists were from the lowest class of people. They were treated with contempt by the people who had the idea of being chosen people and they recognized the connotative motion of internal expression which suppresses the emotional rhythmic motion.This study also found very different facts about each dance. "Kabuki" dance became dramatized. The reason for the strong demand for dramatization was that the social class was composed of mercenary people and dramatic behavior was the best sedative and stimulant which calmed frustration and bred dreams. But, because the motion of Ip-choom was demanded by the aristocracy, it was elegant and precise with mature and noble movement while kabuki dance gradually lost the original purity of dance. en_US
