- In all agricultural societies status-role designations are closely related to variations in the rights to use and control land. Various social ranks existed in the traditional Korean society were closely associated with the land tenure system of those days. Thus, the change in land tenure in contemporary Korea is of particular interest to social scientists. This paper examines the background, process, and results of a land reform which was tardily carried out in Korea after World War II.
