Abstract
This article aims to review methodology on North Korean Studies, especially
totalitarian model approach, immanent approach, everyday life approach.
The characteristics of communist totalitarianism commonly emphasized during
the 1950s are certainly valid and important descriptions so far as they go,
at least of Stanlins Russia and of other oppressive communist systems, for
example, North Korea under Kim Il-sung. North Korea under Kim Il-sung is
a living example of totalitarian society. But totalitarian model approach is
too static, narrow and substructurally insensitive to evolutionary changes in
totalitarianism.
Immanent approach had introduced as a new approach of North Korean
studies in 1988. Immanent approach that presented in South Korea has
made a false representation of its meanings and subject matters in terms of
approach.
This article is to emphasize a study on everyday life as a new perspective
of North Korean studies. The everyday life approach is based on the
methodological self-reflection on the tendency of prevailing North Korean
studies, which placed excessive emphasis on the leadership, ideology, and
political system of North Korea.
