This study purposes to establish the concept of the land use regulation terms such as ‘jiyeok’, ‘jigu’ and ‘guyeok’, and to classify the regulations, in order to suggest how to select the terms. The fundamental survey was made on the land use regulation terms in 4,238 laws, ordinances, and regulations. The regulations were classified in aspects of the form and substance of behavior restrictions. The terms, ‘jiyeok’, ‘jigu’, ‘guyeok’, etc. were conceptualized through the analysis on the various features including purpose, regulation extent, content of behavior restriction, field, and designation characteristic. The analysis, as a partial result, showed ‘jiyeok’ has been frequently used for the purpose of the management of urban or rural areas and the preservation or use of the natural objects. ‘Jigu’ has had the main purposes such as land development and protection of the specific activities or facilities. The regulations named ‘guyeok’, which had relatively many behavior restrictions, were frequently applied to protect the specific activities or facilities and to preserve or use the natural objects. These results were followed by suggestion of guidances to select the terms.
