    Re-reading Veblen: Consumption Society and Leisure Identity

    Kwang-Eik Cho , Lee Don-jae | 2009, 33(7) | pp.11~30 | number of Cited : 15
    This study analyzes the meaning of leisure consumption in the consumption- oriented society by reexamining the conspicious consumption theory of Thorstein Veblen.

In this progress, behavioral principle, preference, and tastes of the leisure class expands into those of all classes. As a consequence, the lower classes imitate behavioral patterns of the leisure class. This study emphasize the consumption function as a mean to express one’s identity by providing people behavioral principle.

    Leisure Space and Play Culture in the Genre Paints ofLate Chosun Period Artists

    성기만 | 2009, 33(7) | pp.57~73 | number of Cited : 4
    This objective of this study is twofold: To analyze our ancestors' leisure form, space and types of play through late-Chosun genre paintings and to look for the ways to integrate such leisure space and play culture as part of our modern-day culture. I conducted an extensive research via the internet and literature and asked two scholar and professional to perform cross-analysis in order to secure credibility. The research presents us with two major findings and a conclusion: First, the form of leisure differs between nobility and commoners. Commoners spend their leisure time in a living space, whereas noblemen engage in leisure activities, dressed in formal clothing and showing proper manners. Secondly, commoners participate in leisure activities that can take place in such natural spaces as yards, alleyway and streets; whereas noblemen tend to set apart their own leisure space besides rooms, gardens and the nature. It is conclusion that we need to develop appropriate policies and programs to preserve and integrate our disappearing play culture from the past as part of our modern-day culture.

    Young A Park , 현용호 | 2009, 33(7) | pp.75~93 | number of Cited : 61
    The purpose of this study is to explore the motivations of ‘walking tour’, which has recently become a newly introduced tourism product. To explore the motivations of walking tour, an in-depth and open-question interview were undertaken. The interviews were conducted based on ‘Ol-Legil’ in Jeju island, known as a popular attraction among tourists who want to walk. The results of this study are as follows: a total of eight dimensions were found by analysing the answers of the interviewees, named ‘natural affinity/ experience’, ‘curiosity’, ‘self-meditation’, ‘self-fulfillment’, ‘self-purification’, ‘health enhancement’, ‘family togetherness’, and ‘socialization’. Among those motivations, ‘self-meditation’, ‘self-fulfillment’, ‘self-purification’ are considered as differential motivations of walking tour since they were not recognized as important factors of the previous studies. Limitations of the research are discussed and implications for marketing practitioners and researchers are presented.

    Chang Pyong Kwon | 2009, 33(7) | pp.187~205 | number of Cited : 11
    Korea's tourism industry has not developed at the aspect of quality despite of growth in quantity. Tourism policy of central and local government have not pursued the integrated approach between development of tourism resources and promotion of tourism business. Therefore, to increase the competitiveness of local tourism industry, it is necessary to adopted the cluster strategy developed by Michael Porter. Lessons from the cases of Phuket of Thailand, Napa Valley of USA, and domestic success models are that public bodies have to contribute to the development of local tourism industry. As the result of theoretical analysis and case study, this paper suggests conclusions such as; firstly, anchor tenant has to setup to construct the regional tourism cluster, secondly, core companies have to attracted for the renovation of tourism industry, and lastly, tourism cluster has to contribute the development of the tourism-related industries.

A close look at the tourism related laws, annual reports on tourism trend, and KTO documents show that the government's role in vocational competence development policy of tourism employees changed from a direct developer in 1960s-1970s, into a indirect promoter in 1980s-1990s, and into a coordinator in 2000s. The major institution for the vacational competence development also changed from KTO in 1960s-1970s, into private education institutes in 1980s-1990s, and into employer associations in 2000s.

    Reciprocal Relationships between Destination Image and Festival Image

    Moon Youn Hee , 채영석 , Cho, Yong-Sang and 1 other persons | 2009, 33(7) | pp.355~378 | number of Cited : 23
    This study examined the reciprocal relationship between destination image and festival image. In order to do this, four different structural equation models, which specify different relationships between destination image, festival image and destination loyalty, has been developed. Data were collected from 131 visitors from the 2008 Gwangju Biennale. The results support partial mediation models of destination image and festival image. This suggests that even though destination loyalty might be directly influenced by both destination image and festival image, it also could be mediated by both variables. Particularly, the mediating effect of destination image was more significant than that of festival image in explaining destination loyalty. A discussion of the key findings and directions for future research were provided.

    Minho Cho , 윤덕화 | 2009, 33(7) | pp.459~485 | number of Cited : 27
    The growing use of Information and Communication Technology in services has revolutionized the interaction between the Airline companies and customers. Customers can perform self-booking, ticketing, and checking-in through the Internet and kiosks without the assistance from airline agents. This also allows the Airlines to reduce labor and operating costs. Therefore, it has become important for the Airline companies to understand how customers perceive and accept SST as the Airlines struggle in persuading their customers to use SST. This study analyzed the customers' perception and their intention to use SST through the Extended Technologies Acceptance Model(ETAM) and the Self-Determination Theory(SDT). The research was conducted among Korean customers who have experience in using SST.
