    This study attempted to extract 138 research papers related to cultures out of the papers on Vietnam studied by Korean up to 2014 and to classify 55 papers of them into the living culture, the spiritual culture, cultural property and the Korean-wave culture and to investigate the stream and outcome of studies the Vietnamese culture conducted in Korea. First, this study classified the living cultured into clothing, food and shelter and made a thematical analysis of them. Then, the spiritual culture was analyzed by classifying it into faith, ritual and festival cultures. And an attempt was made to analyze the Korean-wave culture by dividing it into Korean studies, broadcasting contents, K-pop, fashion and joint production. Finally, it did not analyze and describe the character, the fable, modern and contemporary literature, national culture, woman and so on in relation to the papers related to cultures because of the limited space. But it presented the list on them as the appendix at its end as they are research papers giving an important suggestion in terms of studies on material for utilization. These will be examined in the follow-up study. Both Korea and Vietnam have historically had political and social relations with each other in terms of the World War, the experience of national division. And they currently have active trade exchange with each other. And the current situation is that they have a gradually deeper cultural exchange with each other in terms of international marriage and Korean waved. The cultural aspect is as important as political and economic factors in contemporary society. Cultural study dealing with the specificity of Vietnam, comparative study on the cultural common denominators between two countries and the extension of the cultural study on the extraction of universality from them will helpful to the Koreanological circles and the Korean industrial world.

    Abstract
    The location of Seoul National Cemetery was determined urgently after the Korean War. But, it was used as Dongjakneung from the past and it was the best location at that time because the size of national cemetery was considered. It is also important that location was chosen among candidate by considering Feng-Shui. As for Feng-Shui location analysis, overall Feng-Shui of Seoul National Cemetery is known to the public as Gong-jak-jang-ik Type and Jang-gun-dae-jwa Type according to the metaphysical style. As the contemporary thinking requires more specific theoretical system, the study compared Feng-Shui location condition by Gyeonggi theory and energy field theory combined with specified scientific elements of Feng-Shui. As optimal Feng-Shui location, Seoul National Cemetery has problems that conditions of four gods and defense conditions are not identical, it must be acknowledged that it verified the fact of existence of blood vessel’s synchronized condensation based on energy field theory and there is blood inside Boguk. But as mentioned above, Chung-Ryong-Sa is relatively short than Baek-Ho-Sa that disabled blood field in left and right place that is emitted from bottom in a linear way based on inside water flow energy field theory. It has problem of overall energy field that is not formed in Hyeonmu and Dongjo energy field as a lack of Ansan, which is destine defect of this site. Such part must be overcome Bibo function as acquired element. If Seoul National Cemetery has a cultural value to preserve as cultural heritage and if spatial contents are formed, it may be a space to coexist national spirit and descendants.

    The Following and Resistance of New Technology : The Formative Period for the Korea Online Game Industry and Game Developers’ Response

    Nam, Young | 2015, (41) | pp.119~161 | number of Cited : 3
    Abstract
    When technological innovations take place discontinuously and all of a sudden, the society of technicians in that field will show various responses. Some parts of the society will be enthusiastic about the new technology and will become typical imitators by trying to copy the ways of the frontrunner. Others will worry over the gap between their limitations and the new technology and decide to try to gain certain influences from the new technology in order to improve and reshuffle their own ways through appropriate adjustments. However, there are also more than a few cases where, although there are clear efficiency and economic advantages, outside technology is rejected. When new technologies appear, the reason there are such various responses within the technicians’ society is because technology functions as a means of existence as well as a form of culture. The image of the relevant technology and the self-awareness of the technician have strong influences on how each individual reacts to technological innovations. Under this premise, this study will look at the secondary movers in the Korean online gaming industry – representative types being Kim Nam -Joo of Webzen, Kim Beom-Soo of Hangame, Lee Won Sool of Sonnori – and through these cases it will be explored how each technician’s self-awareness influences each decision.

    A Study of State-building through De-sinicization: Taiwan’s Rectification of State Name and Its Limitations Viewed from the Unsettled International Status

    박병석 | 2015, (41) | pp.263~303 | number of Cited : 2
    Abstract
    The People's Republic of China, Taiwan’s Kuomintang of China, and the UN currently consider the Republic of China and the People's Republic of China are separated entities, and interfere the sovereign “independence” of Taiwan or the Republic of China. However, Taiwan’s nationalists and the mainstream group of the Democratic Progressive Party pursue complete independence from China by the rectification of state name. On the basis of Taiwan's unsettled international status, Taiwan has the right to independence from the People’s Republic of China. Although the international community recognizes the principle of “one China,” it does not have the right to deny the legitimacy of Taiwanese self-determination and impose the idea that Taiwan is part of China. For Taiwan to form a nation-state, it should choose to call itself “Taiwan,” instead of its official name: “the Republic of China.” Regardless of the international community’s recognition of the People's Republic of China as the “one China,” Taiwan should implement its policy of “one Taiwan, one China” and not use the name “China.” It should give up on the name “the Republic of China” and not fight against the People's Republic of China for the right to representation. Taiwan could become an independent country recognized by the international community and conform to international rules only by declaring itself to be a new country unrelated to China.
