Abstract

This study used the descriptive qualitative method, and by utilizing postcolonialism theory, this research focuses on reading the politics of colonial space that happened in Japanese schools in zainichi films. The results showed a blurring of the boundaries between Korea and Japan. The feelings of the zainichi, who have an identity as Japanese because they were born in Japan, the use of the Japanese language in their daily interactions at school, and the use of Japanese names for the zainichi show them. In addition, it was also found that Japan's superiority was confirmed as seen by Japan's control over the citizenship of the zainichi, the arrogance, and domination of Japan as the majority group in schools, and the acknowledgment by the zainichi that the Japanese education system was more advanced than Koreans.
