In both Ulysses and A Day in the Life of the Novelist Gubo, Leopold Bloom and Mr. Gubo show similarities as the middle-class gentlemen venturing into the capital city as colonized subjects. Bloom is an Irish middle class male of a Jewish heritage who saunters through Dublin for the entire day. Mr. Gubo is a Korean middle-class male who also accounts his brief amble in the capital city of colonized Korea, Kyungsung. The selection of “Nausicaa” is due to the similar use of point-of-view, imagery, and characterization of young women’s bodies in Joyce’s chapter and Park’s medium-length novella. “Nausicaa” describes the encounter between Bloom and a young Irish woman Gerty McDowell in the Sandymount Beach. Critics have earlier dismissed “Nausicaa” and A Day in the Life of the Novelist Gubo as misogynistic commentaries about what the authors perceive as unthinking and passive female consumers of the empire’s ladies’ magazines and romantic fiction. This essay instead contends that the young women were active agents of modernization because they use the empire’s latest imports like transparent stockings to deviate from traditional gender rules. Gerty and the colonized Korean women professing their desires and consumer acts dismantle binaries between empire/colonized, healthy/diseased, desire/disgust and men/women. Bloom and Gubo’s duality, their disgust intertwined with desire, has more to do with their questions about existing as the colonized subject with an ambivalent love-hate relationship with the empire, rather than what they perceive as the ‘diseased’ ‘flawed’ or ‘lacking’ qualities of the women’s bodies.
