    Abstract PDF
    This study aims to identify the option framing effect and analyze the interactive effect between this option framing effect and its types of information. To achieve this, quasi-experience was conducted, and a total of 200 samples were used to verify these results statistically. Also, an Independent T-test was performed to analyze result differences using option framing. Then, a multivariate analysis of variance (MANOVA) was carried out to verify these interactive effects. These results showed that the option selection number and the total product price were higher in terms of option subtractive framing than option additive framing. In terms of interactive effects between types of information, specifically, the interactive effects of visual-auditory information were higher. That is, the first type of information was visual information, consisting of texts and images; the other was visual-auditory in consisting of video clips. The results show that, because of the option framing effect, the types of information may have an effect as an interactive variance. Therefore, this paper expects such results may prove useful as grounds for introducing new products throughout the travel industry.

    NOH JAE EUN , Choi, Young-Seok , Choi, Seung-Dam | 2016, 40(8) | pp.43~62 | number of Cited : 26
    The purposes of this paper are to identify the factors that make up tourism information characteristics in online communication and to analyze the relationships between the tourism information characteristics and word-of-mouth communication effects. The paper will also investigate the moderating role of information seeker personality traits in these relationships. Literature relevant to research topics was reviewed and based on this literature review, 2 research hypotheses were formulated. To test these hypotheses, a questionnaire survey was conducted on people who had experience with online information seeking. Hypothesis 1 which stated that the characteristics of tourism information influence the word-of-mouth effects was partially supported. This revealed that factors of tourism information characteristics such as vividness, timeliness, and playfulness influence the word-of–mouth communication effects. These results are similar to existing research confirming the role of those three factors in the enhancement of word-of-mouth communication effects. Hypothesis 2 which stated the impact of tourism information characteristics on the word-of-mouth effect vary depending on the types of information seeker’s personality traits was not supported in general. This result suggests that there might be other situational variables such as travel price and characteristics of travel companions, Theoretical and practical implications from this research were discussed and suggestions for future research were made.

    To Work or to Enjoy Leisure Time: What Influences the Predisposition of Married People between the Ages of 30 and 50 to Choose between Work and Leisure?

    Lee Na Seo , Oh, Chi Ok | 2016, 40(8) | pp.63~82 | number of Cited : 12
    Recognizing the mechanism of work-leisure balance in life helps us understand how an individual allocates more time to leisure. This study examined explanatory factors that influence married adults’ predisposition or intent to choose work or leisure when they are given extra time. For data analysis, the 2012 National Leisure Activity Survey was used and a total of 3,441 respondents aged between 30 and 50 were included. Results using binominal logistic regression models revealed that explanatory variables such as gender, age, education level, employment state, number of family members involved and desire affect the amount of time spent on leisure during holidays, and the choice of leisure sharing experiences. Furthermore, women rather than men, and married adults rather than single adults wish for leisure activities during the weekend. Also, having some shared leisure time played important role in choosing leisure if more free time is given. Additionally, an individuals’ willingness to choose leisure rather than work was also positively related to the higher perceived sufficiency of leisure time on weekdays, the leisure cost, and the satisfaction level of the leisure time. Study findings for married adults in the 30s indicate that policy supports are needed so that the employed, high school graduates, and families with many members allocate more time to leisure. Similarly government and community programs will be beneficial that focus on leisure time management on weekends, and leisure experiences with family and others.

    Lee Jin Young | 2016, 40(8) | pp.117~136 | number of Cited : 1
    This study looked at workers in companies located in Seoul and throughout the Greater Seoul Metropolitan Area to understand their level of satisfaction with their in-company contract food service and nearby restaurants according to the demographic characteristics. In order to achieve this, the study conducted in-depth interviews with in-company contract food service customers and food service managers, from September 18th, 2012 to October 30th of the same year. A survey was conducted on 626 people, from January 24th, 2013 to February 7th that same year, and the study verified the difference using a t-test and ANOVA. The in-depth interview revealed that the customers wanted adequate pricing, and varied food items to be served. Customers also wanted two other items which were: 1) for food service managers to propose rational unit pricing for served food, and 2) that food taste and quality be improved. The survey also showed that there is no difference in the level of satisfaction in terms of the visiting frequency of in-company food service and nearby restaurants. However, the level of satisfaction differed according to price groups: price groups of 3,000~4,000won and 4,100~5,000won for in-company contract food service, and price groups of 3,000~8,000won and 8,000~12,000won for eating out at nearby restaurants each showed different levels of satisfaction. There was also a significant difference between food service and restaurant satisfaction level in terms of demographic characteristics. The results of the current study may be used as basic data for establishing a management strategy to induce revisits to in-company contract food service.

    Choi, Young-Hee | 2016, 40(8) | pp.175~191 | number of Cited : 7
    This paper examined the motivation of volunteer tourists in the Galapagos Islands. To strengthen the theoretical ideas, 8 volunteer tourists who participated in volunteer work, and tourism were selected to be volunteer tourists and used in the pilot interview. To satisfy the research objectives, the researcher conducted three in-depth interviews with volunteer tourists. The results suggest that, the motivation factors of a volunteer tourist can be classified according to push and pull factors. The “Attraction of the Galapagos”, “the novelty of travel”, and “the desire for new experience” are all representative factors of motivation. This shows that the volunteer tourists want to escape from their daily life and normal tourism experiences. Furthermore, it was discovered that an emotional change appears in volunteer tourists depending on the type and responsibility level of the volunteer work. Conclusions include recommendations for further research and discussion.

    Measuring a Visitor’s Authenticity at an UNESCO World Heritage Site

    남윤희 , SEOHO UM | 2016, 40(8) | pp.205~223 | number of Cited : 9
    Authenticity has been recognized as having a primary role in world heritage tourism and it has included very complex and multiple meanings. This study developed measurement scales capturing multi-dimensionality of authenticity at a world heritage destination. The study was conducted throughout March, 2016 at Andong Hahoe Folk Village in South Korea with 278 valid data sets being obtained. Survey Questionnaires were designed to measure two different processes of authenticity: 1) ‘output’ which represents a visitor’s perception of tour performance and 2) ‘outcome’ which represents visitor’s perception of a tour result. The findings of this study showed that authenticity was divided into both an objective authenticity related to the tour objective and an existential authenticity based on a tourists’ experience at the destinations. In addition, authenticity was constructed and measured according to the aspects of both the ‘output’ and ‘outcome’ of a tour process. While ‘uniqueness’ was found to be the output of an objective authenticity, ‘realistic perception’ was found to be the outcome of an objective authenticity. Existential authenticity included ‘assimilation’ and ‘self-discovery’ respectively. The results of a multiple regression analysis showed that ‘uniqueness’, ‘realistic perception’, ‘assimilation’ and ‘self-discovery’ have significant effects on the intention to revisit the site. ‘Realistic perception’ and ‘self-discovery’ were both especially derived as an outcome, as they had greater effects on the intention to revisit. This study provides both an empirically valid scale for authentic measurement and a practical tool for visitor management at world heritage destinations.
