ABSTRACT

Each country gradually has becoming different culture because of the 21st century Globalization has accelerated, in addition, we became a structure of governance and management which cannot be done separately from neo-liberalism. It is true that globalization has positive effects for humanity, But it is true that globalization also does raised certain realistic fears about some harm that it brought. Therefore, in order to solve these problems, It is a great significance that looking at the issues of globalization and multiculturalism from the insight of Chinese classics 『Zhuangzi』. If so, what kind of leadership shows from the 『Zhuangzi』? In the warring states period, a week country Song was threatened with powerful nations. Crazy mixed up world at times. How does they survive in the world can be threatened with life? 『Zhuangzi』 is written by using humor or a fable. The message is, Freedom and happiness ought to be restored to public life. In that sense, 『Zhuangzi』 shows how to overcome the tough world with it is exemplifying the theory with a specific example. 『Zhuangzi』 is a book that often seems eccentric and confused, but actually has a very sharp mind. It has amazing insight about contemporary. I think we can say that is a virtues of leadership. Discussion on multiculture in Korea started in side of human rights protection for marriage. However the concept of 21st multiculturalism have changed greatly with rapid free trade and globalization. So, the heart of the problem is not limited on this subject, it is not simple. Excessive competition has destroyed people's moral fibre, just only winner takes all structures. Because free trade made it easier for economically stronger countries to overpower and exploit weaker ones. Only money have become the standard for all of the people. The traditional sentiment(情) of Korean community is gradually disappeared. The number of foreign residents in South Korea has already passed the two-million mark on the back of the influx of migrant workers and foreign wives for koreans. Koreans and foreigners associated with the job of conflict will be more serious social problem. 『Zhuangzi』 showed leadership through different eyes, so I wish to discuss issue of globalization and multiculturalism in Korea through it.
