The purpose of this study is to examine relations between 「Okdanchunjeon」 and various styles of folk songs whose title include the word, 'Okdanchun', collectively called , and determine factors that developed the novel into the folk song by analyzing them. For the purpose, this researcher assumed that the development of 「Okdanchunjeon」 should be studied as a part of a literary phenomenon in the late Chosun, that is, intersections among a variety of genres. Chapter Ⅱ discussed the theme of 「Okdanchunjeon」. This work has been known as a novel about love affair. But when its sequences were analyzed, the novel was found a literal work about not only love affair, but also faith. In Chapter Ⅲ, the researcher collected a number of folk songs whose title included the word, 'Okdangchun', and classified them into four styles. First, 「Okdanchunjeon」 comprises four sequences, 'promise', 'hardship', 'relief' and 'retaliation'. the first style of folk songs classified here are a direct expression of the second and third sequences. They indicates that in the period of Chosun, classic novels were distributed by means of songs. Second, folk songs that illustrate Okdanchun's beautiful figure and family were found intensively accepting and expanding scenes in the sequence of 'hardship' found in 「Okdanchunjeon」. These songs seem to have been created under the influence of Pansori. Third, folk songs that are common only in using the word, 'Okdanchun' were found employing epic fragments of 「Okdanchunjeon」. Fourth, the final style of folk songs classified here illustrate the death of Okdanchun by borrowing the world of death developed in a shamanic epic, . They may be regarded continuously extending the alrady completed epic structure of 「Okdanchunjeon」, maximizing the emotional effect of Okdanchun's death. Chapter Ⅳ considered factors that developed the novel into folk songs from perspectives of theme orientation and genre intersection. People who enjoyed folk songs often recognized 「Okdanchunjeon」 as a novel about not only love affair, but also faith. They seems to have developed the novel into a folk song through accepting its another theme, faith. Common characters shared by novel in Korean and folk song, or oral statement and rhythmicity were main factors that developed 「Okdanchunjeon」 into folk songs. The fact that the two genres had the same class of people enjoying them also contributed to the development. Chapter Ⅴ summarized previous chapters and suggested that further studies should be made on previous studies about 「Okdanchunjeon」 and genre intersections among folk songs, novels in Korean and Pansori in the late Chosun.
