Abstract

Throughout the history, Korea has been a country with a splendid culture based on an ethnicity which respects the nature and spirits of the oriental world. In the 1890s, oriental society was swayed by the expansion of westernization and imperialism. Korea failed to cope with this difficult situation and was colonized by Japan. After the end of the Japanese colonial period, Korea collapsed again because of a national tragedy, the Korean War. Nevertheless, through a 1970s’ well-being campaign, ‘Saemaeul Undong,’ and the success of economic development plans, Korea has become one of the most developed countries in the world. However, the promotion of economic development and westernization resulted in side effects which accelerated the destruction, damage and extinction of traditional culture and cultural properties. Thus, the Korean government inaugurated the Bureau of Cultural Property Organization as a specialized administrative unit of cultural properties in October, 1961.(The rest omitted)
