The Korean food, which has been attracting attention only as a unique culture of Korea, has become popular in the world market by being used as a material of Korean Wave and me-media. The systematic organization of knowledge for recipes and related information can highlight the value of Korean food. It will serve as a basis for improving the reusability of Korean food contents through expanded and limited search and effective browsing. This study purports to design an ontology for establishing Korean food knowledge structure. Ontology modeling is based on OWL. Vocabularies of Korean food were examined based on 32 volumes of Korean food information, and data elements were extracted by analyzing five domains and applications. As a result, the study derived classes and properties, and proposed an indexing example.
