The discussion about the structural reformation of Korean rail industry has been consistently conducted from the evaluation on Korean National Railroad`s management in 1998, the foundation of KORAIL in 2005 to the approval of Suseo KTX corporation establishment in 2013 and the controversy over its privatization. This research explores the changes of government policies by applying to ACF in the assumption that those changes have been implemented due to the interaction of various external variables and main agents in policy which had existed for a long-term period that the rail industry`s structural reformation has been practiced for more than 10 years. The unions failed to reach an agreement for the rail industry`s structural reformation, the policies regarding the reformation have been led by superior political unions. And this research concludes that a mediator who can compromise unions` different policy preferences and means and bring up a compromised decision in conflicted situation plays a pivotal role to successfully practice these policies.
