The Maeul-mandeulgi appeared to regenerate urban infrastructure and communities which have been destructed in the rapid industrialization of urban area since the 1960s. Unlike existing urban rehabilitation projects which had been led by government, the Maeul-mandeulgi is based on the participation of the inhabitants, and its ultimate purpose is local community recovery, improvement of its' life quality and living conditions etc. Yet in the process of promoting Maeul-mandeulgi as lack of conscious participation of the inhabitants and unilateral administration of government officials cause conflicts among the participants. These conflicts make Maeul-mandeulgi projects difficult to be sustainable and stable. In this study, we selected three towns where their Maeul-mandeulgi projects have been completed, and understood the general characteristics of the conflicts in the first place. By using three-step coding process(open coding, axial coding, select coding) of the 'Grounded Theory' which is one of the qualitative research methodologies, this study classified, compared and reached basic conclusions on the characteristics of the conflicts.
