ABSTRACT

Examining the formative characteristics of traditional Korean dining table setting might provide helpful insight for the globalization of Korean food. However, very limited study to date has examined the subject. Using a qualitative method of participant observation and image sampling(Warphing) technique, this study analyzed the formative characteristics of 14 different Koran restaurant dining table setting. Four different forms of Koran dining table(standardization, symmetry, stability, emphasis) were considered in this study for analysis. Results showed that the Koran restaurants' dining table setting form was more likely diverse, symmetrical, instable, emphasis driven than standard, asymmetrical, stable and non-empathetic. Particularly, 11 restaurants(79%) provided their dining table with diverse forms of dish setting, while only 3 restaurants(21%) presented their table with standard style of dish setting. Results from this study suggest the need for a new approach of dining table setting of Koran food to contribute to value improvement of Korean food culture.
