Moral education is essential to the military in fostering elite warriors to have clear sense of their nation and the security, while arming themselves with military spirit that strives for victory. To reach this goal, various moral education has been set forth through boot camp training, academic education, unit training, etc. depending on various subject and supporting agencies in question. Also, in order to heighten the effect of the education, various attempts to combine concert-style cultural activities with the programs are carried out. However, the ultimate goal for this moral education is to facilitate soldiers to voluntarily set their minds and will in combat, and the current education system lacks that motivation as it concentrates mostly on educating knowledges about nationality and security. Under such circumstances, various units have attempted to raise morality in creating many public and media activities within the unit, which proven to be successful. In theory, the usual definitions in the field of education such as emotion, interest, attitude, and personality can be expanded upon with public and media activities. With this in mind, we have researched on how effective this method is by conducting various public and media activities in multiple units, total of 531 soldiers, starting from June to July of 2016. As a result, these activities brought positive effects on young soldiers to build pride in their assigned units, and also increased their willingness to carry out their assignments and missions. Through this research, we drew to the conclusion that unit-level public and media activities, which was solely used for gaining trust and communicate with the general civilians, can be used to boost the soldiers moral strength and help them express the strength in action.
