In this paper, we extracted several attributes described below by analyzing the characteristics of scapegoat motif appear in Lee's novel.
An innocent scapegoat appears to be the core motif in Lee's novel, 「Mujung」, and outraging the purity of innocent scapegoat, in this case, Yongchae happens to be the focus of problem.
In 「Gaechukja」, the scapegoat of self-awakening appears to be the core motif. This novel describes the self-awakening of Sungsoon, the heroine, and presents the problem of frustration and hopelessness followed by the self-awakening process.
In 「Jaesaeng」, the core motif is the scapegoat of the times. A scapegoat of retribution from the corruptions and sins of young people comes into question.
In 「Heuk」, the core motif is the scapegoat of arrogance. Arrogance from class-conscious, retribution of sins which comes from passion, and self-resurrection portrays a problem.
In 「Aejung ui Pian」, the core motif is the scapegoat of passion. The scapegoat of passion and self sacrifice comes into question.
In 「Sarang」, the core motif is the scapegoat of salvation. Self sacrifice based on the tragic world view and a will of salvation presents a problem.
By analyzing the above, we can easily find the fact that the scapegoat motif becomes the core motif in Lee, Gwang-soo's work. This motif parallels the scapegoat motif of Jesus Christ, so the conclusion that the Christian implication is indirectly and internally presented by the scapegoat motif can be made even though Lee did not externally professed Christianity in his novels.
