A distinct mode of citizenship has thereby arisen in terms of transformative contributory rights. Citizenship as transformative contributory rights is defined as effective or legitimate claims to national and social resources, opportunities, and respects that accrue to each citizens contributions to the nations or societys collective transformative goals. South Koreans have been exhorted or have exhorted themselves to intensely engage in each of such transformations, so that their citizenship has been framed and substantiated by the conditions, processes, and outcomes of such collective transformative engagements.
