This study examined 316 soldiers in the South Korean Army and the mediation effects of social support on bullying and frustration. Bullying, social support, and frustration showed average scores of 2.23, 3.60, and 2.75 points, respectively. There was a positive correlation between bullying, social support, and frustration. All of the subordinate variables of bullying showed significant impacts on frustration (p<.05), with psychological harassment showing the greatest impact (), followed by bullying in interpersonal relationships () and bullying at work (). In all the interaction items of the subordinate variable bullying social support, bullying had a significant impact on frustration at p<.01, while the highest impact was shown in the interaction item of bullying member support (). The results imply that intangible combat power and solidarity among soldiers can be guaranteed only when superiors and peers provide full support for soldiers who are victims of bullying.
