Abstract

South Korea (hereinafter Korea) is leading the world in some forefront IT areas including high speed internet, mobile phones, PC penetration, DRAM, display equipments, internet appliances, set-top boxes, online network games and so on. Especially, with regard to broadband access to the Internet, Korea is by far the leading performer in the OECD area (OECD, 2001). In November 2002, Korea’s broadband penetration passed 20 subscribers per 100 inhabitants. The government, however, has been worried about the underutilization of the superb IT network infrastructure. As a possible solution to the problem, the promotion of “digital life” is being examined thoroughly from various points of view. The digital life aims to enrich our daily lives by enabling us to remain connected with communication networks anywhere anytime in order to do anything we want to do from work to entertainment.
