- A cognitive framework regarding Koreans and Korean culture constitutes the foundation of “Korean culture theory.” When investigating how this framework was formed – or is being formed – a series of circumstantial changes from the late 1980s to 1990 requires scrutiny. Above all, this means examining the repositioning of identities and traditions of Korean culture, the new meanings they are acquiring amid global changes such as the expanding world order and formation of the global village, and the movement of culture beyond the confines of national and regional borders.
