ABSTRACT

Using two major tourism journals this paper is to review the trend of leisure research appeared in tourism journals in Korea. The search in the KISS resulted in the total of seventy-five leisure related research papers, which were, after careful categorization, reduced to nine basic themes. The whole article was divided to fall under three time periods for analysis. The results revealed that the volume of leisure research increased considerably over time and the subject matters have diversified from the predominantly social psychological in nature to include more various topics. The leisure research shows resemblance with that in the field of physical education in terms of the trend, both of which differ little from the North American leisure studies, signifying the influence of the latter on the former.
