Abstract
South Koreas recent Hallyu and economic booms have contributed to a large
influx of international students flocking to get a taste of Korean culture, and the
correlations between pop culture, economic success, and international student numbers
have been studied extensively. However, little research on how deterrents can affect
the consumer behavior of these students has been conducted. This research
investigates the effects of large-scale accidents on international students perceptions
of personal safety in their country of study and how that affects their decision to
remain in that country or leave. International students in Korea at various stages of
their university career were surveyed and interviewed to determine the effects that the
Sewol ferry sinking had on their perceptions of personal safety in Korea and on their
intentions to continue living there. This study found that while short term increases of
such perceived safety risks occurred immediately after the incident, the fluctuations in
perceptions were less pronounced as time went on. The major changes were not in the
international students perceptions of the risks, but rather in their perceptions of the
various actors involved ? the government, the media, and the general public.
