    The Validity of Reinstatement of citizenship of Koryuin and The Application of the Overseas Koreans law

    Kang Hye Jung , Sung Soo Na | 2019, 4() | pp.1~36 | number of Cited : 0
    Abstract PDF
    This study aims to argue the validity of Reinstatement of citizenship of Koryuin. The Korean government did not do this, even though it should have been a matter of national necessity for the return of Koreans forcibly drafted by Japan after Korea's liberation from Japanese colonial rule. In particular, the Goryeo people who were relocated or forced into Russian territory were deprived of the opportunity to return, and had to suffer the double pain of forced migration and oppression by Stalin's persecution and oppression. After the dissolution of the former Soviet Union due to instability in their status, the forcibly displaced Koreans suffered discrimination and oppression as a stateless or another stranger in each independent state. Despite being victims of history, the opportunity to return to Korea after Korea's liberation from Japanese colonial rule was blocked and the opportunity to choose nationality was deprived. Therefore, it is reasonable that life as a stranger was compulsory at a national level, not at their choice, and that the opportunity to restore their nationality should be given.

    A Study on the Improvement of Long-Term Care Insurance System for the Elderly

    Shin Mi Sook | 2019, 4() | pp.93~117 | number of Cited : 1
    Abstract PDF
    This study is explains the increasing need of medical care among the elderly as the aging population and life expectancy is increasing nowadays. The chronic disease of the elderly and the increasing difficulty of daily life need more assistance from others. The changes of family structure, the lack of sense of support, and the increase of women's advancement into society has led into the national discussion. On the 1st of July 2008, Korea implemented a long-term care insurance system for the elderly, which is provided services to the entire populations. Long-term care insurance for the elderly, which marks the 12th year of the system, has been partially supplemented so far to take into account the people's ability to bear burden, enhance the efficiency of financial stability and fiscal spending, and provide quality long-term care services. For examples the expansion of the number of people who are graded on a limited number of people with severe disabilities, and the provision of long-term care services based on their functional status (not their economic status). The increase in the demand for long - term care for the elderly suggests that the long - term care insurance system for the elderly needs to be prepared for stable and continuous operation as the rapid increasing population of elderly.

    Bilingual Education for enhancement the competency of intercultural communication

    Shin Yong Shik | 2019, 4() | pp.119~149 | number of Cited : 1
    Abstract PDF
    In relation to the task of Multicultural Education for Social Integration this article aims to focus on practical effectiveness of Bilingual Education. While existing multucultural education has mainly regarded the Korean as a major task of language education on behalf of cultural assimilation strategy, but here the focus should be shifted the bilingual approach which can more flexibly encompass cultural diversity. The correlation between culture and language education should be understood in the endless interaction between mainstream and minority cultures or target cultures and mother cultures rather than simply focusing on Korean culture and Korean language education. In this sense we must consider that the language education is a part of the cultural education, not this belongs to that! Right this is why we have to dare to explain academically multicultural significance of bilingual education. If we identify the task of language education only in the perspective of cultural Assimilation to mainstream culture, it should be the ultimate goal of our multicultural education to exterminate cultural diversity of multiculture and to advocate a imperialism of a single culture. But our cultural attention has to move from this cultural imperialistic Interest to the diverse interaction between the boundaries of the two cultural domains in a society. That is why we need to say the “Interkulturalismus”, which aims for bilateral relations, rather than the unilateral inclusion of minority cultures into mainstream culture.  To make this clear with regard to practical possibility of bilingual education that comes out from the intercultural interest I dealt with the bilingual policy in Berlin, Germany. Through this we can see the practical possibilities and effectiveness of bilingual education to enhance the competency of intercultural communication.

    A Study on the Multicultural Policy in Ulsan during the Chosun Dynasty

    Sin Yong Il | 2019, 4() | pp.151~177 | number of Cited : 0
    Abstract PDF
    Modern Northeast Asia is experiencing rapid social changes due to the rise of the large Chinese economy along with the economic chrysanthemum of Japan and the high economic growth of Korea. This led to urbanization, which caused many social problems due to urbanization, and the representative phenomenon of urbanization can be considered as low, childbirth, and elementary and aging society. The development process of industry is represented by expansionism, which leads to the departure of rural areas, and the population outflow of rural areas has accelerated the low, childbirth, and the early and aging society. Urban area also has positive effects on the process of industrialization, but various social problems and polarization problems have also been mass-produced. Industrial polarization means entry into multicultural society. Ulsan area is a region where multicultural families have lived in a residential village since the Chosun Dynasty. The records of Ulsan's family register chiefs include Ulsan Dongmyeon Nongsori, Yudeungpori and Nammyeon Onyangri, and lived for generations. The records of Ulsan area called wildlings and dwarfs who were naturalized in Chosun as 'Hyanghwa', which is the current multicultural people. It is a record of the beginning of multicultural policy. In general, when wildlings are naturalized, the government has paid free of charge for houses, farmland, farming, and necessities, and sometimes gave them a rice paddy. We have been exempted from taxes from land for three years, or exempted from the ministry for 10 years. These measures are the policy tasks we should engrave in multicultural society.

    Cho Wisu , Cho Youn Chu , Lee Su Ji and 3 other persons | 2019, 4() | pp.179~205 | number of Cited : 1
    Abstract PDF
    The purpose of this study lies in discussing ways to develop the linguistic adaptation contents for North Korean refugees. The issue of inter-Korean language heterogeneity has been considered as the main factor preventing them from settling in South Korean society beyond communication, but practical education measures are still insufficient. Thus, this study has shed light on the linguistic adaptation contents development that enables self-learning considering learner’s circumstances. To this end, it examined the principles of contents development through the literature review on linguistic adaptation of North Korean refugees and in-depth interview with them from March 14 to July 1, 2018. In addition, it analyzed the videos and self-learning workbooks developed by B University. The contents are expected to reduce the refugees’ linguistic and cultural difficulties to some degree, but the needs for customized educational materials reflecting learners’ variables and motivations are also suggested. The failure to validate the contents would remains its limitation. However, this work has its meaning in that it has extracted educational contents and forms from the literature review and needs analysis, and illustrated the contents development through the case study.

    The comparison of Korean and Japanese translation of culture related words in Kim Ji Young born 1982,

    Kodaya Mayumi | 2019, 4() | pp.207~233 | number of Cited : 2
    Abstract PDF
    This study aims at comparing the Korean and Japanese translation ‘Kim Ji Young born 1982’. The reason of the selection of this novel is the issue of common interest to Japanese as well as Korean. This novel deals with social problems through the main character experiences. Many Korean women may have had same experiences like Kim Ji Young. Although it deals with the material of Korean culture, discrimination as women living in Japan is not much different from Koreans. So it is drawing sympathy from Japanese readers. The cultural elements appearing in literary works are important to infer a part of the novel’s period background and atmosphere. This novel presents statistical figures and news articles, which are written more easily than literary works. The Japanese translation focuses on acceptability and legibility, and has chosen a translation method that describes cultural elements. This study excerpts cultural elements such as the newly-coined words, living culture related vocabulary, women’s point of view related vocabulary and onomatopoeic words. It is meaningful how cultural elements are actually being translated in Korean and Japanese.
