Abstract
This study uses Critical Discourse Analysis approach to analyze documentary Super China: The Leadership of the Communist Party of China (CPC). This study focuses on the representation and image building of CPC and analyses the ideologies behind them. This study argues that the documentary tries to construct a hegemonic, powerful and autocratic CPC in the ‘text’ dimension. In the ‘discursive practice’ dimension, ideologies of South Korea are articulated in CPC’s hegemony. In the ‘social practice’ dimension, the image of the CPC in the documentary reflects South Korea’s cognition of CPC. In conclusion, Super China: The leadership of the CPC reconstructs the image and orders of discourse of the CPC and produces new hegemony. That is, the process of discursive struggle is also the process of building hegemony in South Korea.
