ABSTRACT

Stable settlement type of leisure activity and another type were roughly influenced by “the presence of immersed experience of leisure activities during school life or prior to retirement.” Those who immersed into leisure activities organized techniques and movements and became members when they restart to participate in activities after they were retired from works, while beginners were typically considered as unhelpful as they are trained from scratch. Given the fact that members are willing to participate in clubs, leisure clubs are social networks with high familiarity and reliability. If members join leisure activities from childhood and experience in taking care of each other, they can form social networks through leisure activities after retirement and join in improving the administration service. Unless the Korean society removes the rule of “entering top-notch university is an ultimate success in life,” negative attitudes toward educational programs directly irrelevant with test score will not be changed. In particular, unless attitudes toward education for leisure considerably affecting the quality of life in old age, leisure abilities of our descendents will not be improved. If this leisure ability such as playing smartphone game alone continues, they will see cold-hearted and solitary senile lives than current senior people.
