    A Comparative Study of Tourism Psychology and Behavior Models between People who are Physically Challenged and Those who are not: Focusing on the Relations Concerning Personal Values, Psychological Empowerment, Social Support and Tourism Behavior

    KyungChan Lee , Kim, Nam Jo | 2016, 40(3) | pp.35~53 | number of Cited : 17
    This study is to compare the effects of individual values, psychological empowerment, and social support on the behavioral intentions of physically challenged and non-physically challenged individuals. The results of analyses show that personal values of the physically challenged people did not have a direct impact on their attitude and behavioral intention, but it did when psychological empowerment and social support played a meditating role in their relation. For non-physically challenged people, personal values had a direct impact on tourism attitude and behavioral intention while social support was found a mediating variable. It shows that psychological empowerment is an important variable to the attitude and behavioral intention of physically challenged individuals, and variables affecting their tourism attitude of were different from non-physically challenged individuals. This study has an especially great significance in helping understand the behavior of physically challenged people by proving that their psychological empowerment is an important driving factor for tourism attitude. Furthermore, it is expected to be basic evidence to support tourism policy on decision-making for physically challenged people who have been underprivileged in tourism activities.

    Hye-Won, Jang | 2016, 40(3) | pp.55~69 | number of Cited : 12
    Abstract PDF
    Convergence is a phenomenon that has had a profound effect on several industries over the past decades. Despite this, prior research has been limited by a lack of coherent theoretical definitions of convergence in tourism study. This study aims to establish conceptualization for convergence tourism. The concept of convergence tourism was drawn by the inductive method. First of all, the researcher reviewed literature on convergence and industry convergence. Then, the three core attributes of subject, process and performance were derived from the concepts of convergence and industry convergence. This study also tr performed content analysis based upon in-depth interviews with individuals involved in medical tourism, MICE and 6th industrialization. Finally, to establish conceptualization the four categories of: market orientation, cooperation orientation, innovation orientation and value orientation were considered as conceptual attribution. These results suggest that convergence tourism is sustainable tourism and furthermore, convergence tourism is a tourism paradigm.

    Lee Choong-Ki | 2016, 40(3) | pp.71~87 | number of Cited : 23
    Abstract PDF
    Nowadays, implementation of Corporate Social Responsibility(CSR) and Responsible Gambling(RG) are necessary for a casino company to achieve sustainable operation. Although research on CSR and RG has been conducted on casino employees and visitors, little research has been conducted on the major stakeholding residents who played an important role in legalizing Kangwon Land Casino. Also, for Kangwon Land Casino to achieve sustainable operation, the trust and support of residents is important, and this is influenced by the benefits and costs resulting from casino development. In this respect, the purpose of this study is to examine the effects of CSR and RG on trust which in turn, influences residents’ support, and further investigate how benefits and costs affect trust and support. To this end, an onsite survey was conducted from October 30th to the 31st, 2015 on residents in Taebaek city and the Jeongseon district. The results of this study reveal that economic and legal CSRs were positively influenced by trust which in turn, had an effect on support. The results also indicate that benefits had a positive impact on trust and support, whereas costs had a negative effect on trust and support. Theoretical and practical implications were provided in the conclusion section.

    안주영 , 정현경 , Cho, Yong-hyun | 2016, 40(3) | pp.89~108 | number of Cited : 4
    This study aims to figure out the Quality of Job(QoJ) perceived by travel agents and what is to be improved using Importance-Performance Analysis (IPA) and to examine the effects of QoJ on their organizational commitment(OC) and savings for retirement. The survey was conducted on travel agents in the Seoul metropolitan area and 200 valid responses were analyzed. The main results are as follows: First, an importance level of QoJ(3.813) was higher than that of performance(3.094) and ‘reward’ is the most urgent factor to be improved among 7 QoJ factors of ‘relationship’, ‘work condition’, ‘job reputation’, ‘reward’, ‘welfare’, ‘employment security’, and ‘development possibility’. Second, the ‘reward’ factor has positive effects on emotional/ normative/continuous OC and the ‘relationship’ factor has a positive effect on normative OC. Furthermore, ‘employment security’ factor has a positive effect on savings for retirement. Finally, the level of perceived QoJ factors varies according to the employees’ gender, major, company size and desired time to retire.

    A Study on Causality Investigation of the Mentoring Function Configuration Factors for a Hotel Organization

    정욱 , Kim, Sung Hyuk , Kim, Hong-bumm | 2016, 40(3) | pp.109~124 | number of Cited : 5
    As a hotel organization is a typical human-resource intensive industry, many researchers have proposed a mentoring function to alleviate a variety of problems that occur here. However, despite the criticality of mentoring in hotel organizations, some studies didn’t utilize the components of the mentoring function correctly. To fill this gap, the purpose of this research was to verify a causality that is an Interface of the Mentoring Function Component in a hotel organization. Also, a referenced paper on this research developed a mentoring function that reflected the characteristics of the hotel, and in this process, it was suggested that there is a causal relationship between the mentoring function configuration factors. In addition, after the theoretical consideration in this study, we were able to secure the rationale of this study in a Social Learning Theory(Bandura, 1986). Through this, the hypothesis was set and verified by empirical analysis. We carried out this study using employees of 5-star hotels within the metropolitan area(400 parts) and conducted confirmatory factor analysis which confirmed a suitable structure of the factors proposed in this study. Finally, we tested the hypothesis through structural equation modeling analysis. The implications of this study are as follows. By verifying the causal relationship between the mentoring function configuration factors, a theoretical depth of the mentoring function was found to be better. In practice, it can be inferred that the mentor’s advice for the mentee’s he career henceforth is better than the current work.

    Estimation for the Change of Demand Determinants of a Cultural Festival: Focused on Comparing Demands of BIFF 2007/2014

    Han Sang-Hyun | 2016, 40(3) | pp.125~142 | number of Cited : 6
    This study is to estimate the determinants of demand of the Busan International Film Festival. The number of the festival’s official audience was seriously increased after the Busan Cinema Center, which is a main venue for BIFF, was opened in 2011. In this study, two demand functions of the years 2007 and 2014 were deducted to compare the determinants of demands. For this study, the Negative Binomial model was derived through the results of a Cameron & Trevedi test, which is the optimal method for investigating the over-dispersion in the count data model. An LR-test, a coefficient of determination and a scales of information criterion were considered for the suitability of the model. The consequences of this research are presented as follows: some variables were found significantly in common between the two demand models, such as the response of press, word of mouth effect, experience of the audience, the participation experience in other film festivals, film society membership and interest in film, as the determinants of demand. Facility, accessibility and accommodation were newly deducted as determinants in 2014’s model.

    A Comparative Study of Travel Activities, Travel Expenditures and Information Use between First - Time Visitors and Repeat Visitors: Based on Jeju and Gangwon Tour

    Lee, Sungmi , Park, Deukhee , Junghye Kah | 2016, 40(3) | pp.143~158 | number of Cited : 8
    This study aims to understand differences among travel activities (planned and participated), travel expenditures, and information use between first-time and repeat visitors. Fifteen travel activities were identified from the related literature in order to measure levels of travel activities planned and involved. Moreover, travel expenditures were categorized into accommodation, food, entertainment, shopping, sightseeing, and transportation. Information use was tested in two phases, before and during trips. First, the results indicate that the number of prior visits of repeat visitors to the destination during the past year is reported to be more than four times. Second, repeat visitors are more likely to plan and participate in travel activities and spend money on accommodations and entertainment than are first-time visitors. Third, repeat visitors are more likely to use word of mouth before trips, and cell phone and navigation during trips, to obtain travel information than are first-time visitors. By understanding the results of this research, tourism destination marketers can understand the economic value of repeat visitors, and hence should develop marketing strategies focusing on repeat visitors.
