This paper aims to examine changes and effects related to the liberalization of Korea's distribution industry, suggesting some strategies to take countermeasures against the problems accruing from liberalization. This paper places more importance on dynamic structural changes and Korean characteristics than on the status quo of the Korean distribution industry. In order to analyze impact of the commodity market of liberalization on the distribution, this paper takes both a theoretical and practical approach. Through such analyses, some useful strategies and devices are offered for Korean companies and foreign investors hoping to enter Korea's domestic market. In this regard, the paper makes some policy recommendations for the Korean government to take countermeasures against the negative effects expected to arise from the liberalization.
