Abstract
It is said that we can hardly distinguish one region from the other. Rural and urban landscapes are homogeneous, not much

different from place to place. Greater differences are between an urban center and a rural periphery. We have experienced

homogeneous culture on different geographical features. This is mainly due to the spatial orgainzation of modernization. The modernization, industrialization, and urbanization in the recent history of Korea have evened out the regional differences over

the national territory. Contrary to the trends, there is a strong motivation among

Koreans to identify themselves in their home towns. They gather under the name of their home countries in many cultural occasions and took names of restaurants, hotels, and even businesses named after their home places. The motif of regionalism is getting stronger with more national development. The demands for regional geography become

high waves tide of municipal autonomy near future. Research puts emphasis on the matter of how regional characteristics have disappeared and how it possible to revive a sense of regional identity.
