    Authenticity in Cultural Tourism and the Postmodern Tourism: A Discourse of Developing Cultural Heritage as Tourism Resource

    Kim Kyu-Ho | 2010, 34(2) | pp.11~31 | number of Cited : 23
    The loss of authenticity of cultural properties has been actively discussed in recent years. This paper investigates cultural properties as tourism [toured] objects in the postmodern tourism. First, this study argues that the authenticity of cultural resources could be understood better by a continuum approach, from complete authenticity, through various stages of partial authenticity, to complete falseness than by a dichotomous approach between premodern 'authentic' and modern 'inauthentic.' It also suggests that cultural authenticity needs to be addressed through ontological authenticity because, in the postmodern era, culture undergoes a process of collapse due to the constant collision between the real world and imaginary world. This, in turn, proposes that commoditization of culture through tourism does not necessarily cause the loss of cultural authenticity. Rather it might provide opportunities for reconstruction of traditional culture and establishment of cultural identity.

Data were collected from exhaustive in-depth interviews with eighteen convention planners and were analyzed via the open coding, axial coding and selective coding. 18 categories related to the image formation process were identified in the open coding. Then, a paradigm model of image formation for convention destinations was presented. This suggested that the image of a convention destination was found to be formed, changed and finalized over time, going through such multiple phases as exploration, experience, relation formation, reflection and integration. In selective coding, correction of confusion was identified as the core category in the image formation process and, and four types of confusion correction were presented.
