Nowadays, open education is popular in Korea. Various open education methods such as open time, open space, open curriculum, team teaching, small group learning are actively introduced into mathematics education. Current 'open education in mathematics' in Korea can be characterized as the application general education reform movement (open education movement) to mathematics education. This movement is interested in teaching methods rather than contents. In this article, I discussed with the limits and the problems of this application and argued that not the method-centered open general education reform movement but the content-centered mathematics education's own reform movement is necessary for the true mathematics education reform.
