ABSTRACT

This study examined how the unique cultural aspects of Koreans influence the way they communicate in conflict situations. First, “Chemyon” had a stronger impact on conflict resolution than “Uri” in conflict situations, supporting the results of previous studies on “Chemyon” and conflict communication. Second, the impact of indigenous cultural variables on conflict resolution varied depending on the types of conflict situations. The predictive power of “Chemyon” was stronger in more emotionally-involved situations. Third, the mediating effect of emotion also differed by the types of conflict. In more emotionally-involved situations, compassion appeared to mediate the relationship between culture and conflict while anger was found to be the mediator in less emotionally-involved situations. The results empirically supported the contextual nature of Koreans' cultural characteristics and their impacts on communication.
