Abstract

Land tenure has played an important role in Korean society throughout its long history. Up until World War II the country was largely agrarian, with a feudal land system. Peasant unrest over land rights and high rents was common, and many regimes met their downfall because of this problem. The land tenure system was reformed many times, but remained a feudal system. Following World War II, the country was split into North and South, with both countries enacting major land reform and outlawing tenancy on agricultural lands. While the economy in the communist North has stagnated, South Korea has developed a modern, market economy. South Korea’s rapid growth has created new land problems and the need for modern, computerized systems of land information.
