ABSTRACT

The purpose of this article lies in the study of the ‘Hallyu’ condition observed from the Korean learners’ perspective and the contemplation of its implication in Korean Education. For this purpose, through ‘Hallyu’ associative sentential writing, a qualitative analytic method was applied, and the sentences written by the learners were categorized according to its content. Recently, ‘Hallyu’ has risen as a popular subject point, extending beyond geographical borders and without conformation to a specific domain or field. Moreover, with the value and importance of hallyu in Korean education progressively being emphasized, ‘hallyu’ is becoming a central motivating factor behind learning Korean or the content and background to Korean teaching. However, heretofore, the discussion behind the image of hallyu perceived within the Korean learners’ minds(schema) have proved to be insufficient. Hallyu exists in diverse conditions from a macroscopic level that includes the whole of Korean culture to a microscopic state that singles out a particular song of a specific artist. Therefore, the observation of the appearance of ‘hallyu’ within the Korean learners’ background knowledge is essential to an efficient Korean education. As the result of an analysis of this study based on Korean learners attending universities in Korea, an identification of the condition of hallyu and its examples signifying largely ‘Korean popular culture’ as well as ‘Korean food’, ‘Korean learning’, ‘Korea-related trends and information’ was made. This article will provide a Korean instructor who wills to plan and manage one’s lessons at learners’ eye-level with a useful basis and methodology when searching for a method to efficiently connect and reflect ‘hallyu’ in actual lessons.
