Title: Identità e politica culturale della Corea del 15. secolo verso la Cina: il caso delle musiciste di corte

Abstract: The present article wishes to demonstrate how Korean kings of the 15th century tried to preserve their country's cultural and political identity, in spite of the strong influence exercised by China and Chinese culture not only on Korea itself, but on the entire East Asian region. By studying the case of Korean female court musicians (yôak) and their presence during official banquets for foreign envoys, the article argues that they were kept in office, in spite of the strong opposition by high ranking dignitaries and by Chinese envoys as well, because the yôak came to be considered symbols of Korean cultural identity.
