ABSTRACT

Without understanding globalization process, it seems not possible to understand local or national context of experiences. The globalized of sport has impact on the embodied national identities, which again is menifested in local and national cultural processes. The game style and supporting culture seemed completely different from standardization and homogenization. What we call, Korean-styled power soccer had been created by the Korean national football squad and the sporting event had been changed into the representational space of national identities. What had been observed is that the sport as a leisure practice in globalization and national identity formation plays contradictory role, diminishing contrasts and increasing varieties.
