ABSTRACT

The purpose of this study is to explore the leisure characteristic of university students in Korea in terms of leisure cognition and leisure obsession. And the other purpose of this study is to confirm the applicability of post-labor centered leisure. Data were collected from 189 students of K university, which is located in Kyunggi province. The finding indicated that most students’ leisure focused on physical activities. Also students prefer leisure activities for social network. The most important thing revealed in this study is that many students spend their leisure time to prepare for employment. Also they have obsessions of ‘meaning seeking of leisure activities’, ‘social relationship of leisure’, ‘social comparative of leisure’ and ‘cost of leisure.’ And they recognised of negative effects of leisure like exhaustion after leisure and physical tired. The result of this study is to confirm that post-labor centered leisure is not easy to applicable in Korea society. The study, however, has several limitations in terms of expanding contextual meaning of leisure.
