In domestic game market, the video game market is getting smaller and also decreasing funds and high level developers. So we need the software that can help us to make more realistic and high quality contents by non-expert developer in poor environments. In this paper, we selected global studio`s animations which were scored good evaluation by public and critics as a well-made emotional expression that can convey the emotion properly. We selected movements that express emotions from the animation scripts by using Ekman`s 6 basic emotions and Greimas` dynamic predicate, and then we had analyzed and categorized with the data. We also analyzed the movements for which data we needed to create specific movements to express emotions by using `Animation Layer` that used in Unity`s blending process. And suggest concept of the program that to create the emotional expression movements by using those analyzed data.

In this paper, we presented a design and control method of multi-stage with wagon and lift stage. Multi-stage system has 4 degree-of-freedom(DOF), i.e., forward/backward/left/right/rotate and up/down motion. Wagon mechanism in the type of two wheel and steering is proposed in order to improve for the maneuverability compared to the existing differential-type wagons. Also, the lift mechanism is designed by interlocking type in order to make the maximum height bigger than 10 times of the original height. We also proposed a path planning algorithm. The performance of the propped system is validated via multi motion experiments, so that the multi-stage system is useful for various performances production.

Depending on the smart device user growth and development of communication technology, the area about working environment was extended without constraints of time and places. It is introducing to work using user`s devices and this environment is called `BYOD(Bring Your On Device)`. But it is vulnerable to security threat that happened in existing wireless environment and its security threat issue which is caused by inside information leak by an inside job and lost or stolen terminal which is caused by careless user is getting heated. So we studied about access control protocol by user rights under the BYOD situation make a session key based on the user information. We make a session key based on the user information and user device information, after that we design an access control protocol. The protocol we suggest can protect from attack under the BYOD situation and wireless communication situation and also safety and security requirement from inside information leak because it controls user rights.

The rise of K-Pop in the latecomer environment is unusual. There is little research on K-Pop from the catch-up perspective though it would yield some insight into a strategic direction of creative industries in the latecomer environment. Thus, this study aims to compare the firm capability, market development, and product strategy of K-Pop firms with ones of manufacturing firms during the catch-up period. It reveals first that K-Pop firms developed project execution capability to carry out discrete projects effectively by adopting in-house (vertical) system in music production and increasing the size of firms. Second, they pursued global market and utilized the window of opportunities based on a proven music genre. Third, K-Pop firms pursued the incremental innovation in the product development. Since these characteristics have many similarities with the catch-up strategy in the manufacturing sector, Korean catch-up experience could provide valuable insight into the development of creative industries in Korea.

DOI : 10.5392/JKCA.2015.15.05.228
Using survey on 865 college students, this study examines college students` perceptions on older generations in Korea. College students do not perceive conflicts with the elderly severely. While they recognize that the elderly contributed to family care and economic growth, they perceive that intergenerational conflicts regarding redistribution across generations might be impending in the areas of welfare policies. Progressive students evaluate contributions of the elderly more positively and approve expanding the roles of governments in the areas of welfare policies for the elderly than do conservative students. Students with higher interests in politics also positively assess the contributions of the elderly and are more concerned with the financial sustainability of welfare policies for the elderly. However, they perceive that the possibility of intergenerational conflicts might be low. This study suggests programs to increase intergenerational cooperation between college students and the elderly.

DOI : 10.5392/JKCA.2015.15.05.265
This study with qualitative research method explores the process of a middle-aged woman who finds and constructs her career path. As a result, career constitution process of a research participant choosing a career to make a living and carrying out what she is supposed to do, turned out to be more than just a job adaptation process in the workforce. Career constitution process is a journey in search of "genuine self" and a existential process in which the existence of self is understood by sustained choices and "actions." The research participant on the life journey of finding career path sought to return to her intrinsic life and practiced self-realization toward possibility. The result of this study suggests that "work" being different from calling needs to be understood anew in the existential perspective. "work" is not only a passage which makes the meaning of life by existential "actoins" but also a existential method heading toward self-realization. Not only that, career path is a process which doesn`t get obvious by one choice but is unfolded by shaking between potential energy and possibilities accumulated by here and now decisions and actions. Thus, the researcher of this study suggests that counselling for career path should go beyond the linear task which figures out a person`s aptitude, the features of the workforce and connects both. And there is the need for a paradigm shift in totally understanding the client`s life and in making the meaning of a work in the process of finding genuine "self".

DOI : 10.5392/JKCA.2015.15.05.317
This study examined the mediation effects of sensation seeking on the relationship between internal and external boredom proneness and game addiction. For this study, 567 middle school students in Kyungki and Chungcheong were included in the analysis. The results showed that both internal boredom proneness and external boredom proneness were positively correlated with game addiction. Internal boredom proneness was negatively correlated with all subscales of sensation seeking, whereas external boredom proneness was positively correlated with boredom susceptibility and disinhibition. Sensation seeking was found only to partially mediate the influence of the adolescents` external boredom proneness (independent variable) on game addiction(dependent variable). Based on these results, suggestions for game addiction intervention and future studies were mentioned.

Crowd funding is the method of raising money for a project, companies from a large group of people via the Internet, in return for future products or equity. Kickstarter is the largest and most successful crowdfunding site where creative projects raise reward based funding. Drawing on dataset of 80,267 projects with combined funding over $1.3b from 8.1m people, this paper suggest that backer select project based on their preference on the project, instead profitability of the project. It suggests that well-established platform and big size of network increases the chance of success of the project due to a ripple effect and blockbuster effects. Clear communication about the project`s idea and goal is highly correlated with success. Regular communication on the project site, such as by constant progress updates, helps the success of the project. Equity-based crowdfunding is emerging as an innovative means of raising capital for businesses, so it has been receiving a lot of attention and expectation from the government and the market. The findings of this paper and others will help to get some understanding and insight into equity-based crowdfunding. However, Kickstarter differs from equity-based crowdfunding in the goals of the backers. Kickstarter`s backers are not investors, they are contributors. To understand equity-based crowdfunding, the subject will need further study.

In recent years, many institutions predict that cloud services and big data will be popular IT trends in the near future. A number of leading IT vendors are focusing on practical solutions and services for cloud and big data. In addition, cloud has the advantage of unrestricted in selecting resources for business model based on a variety of internet-based technologies which is the reason that provisioning and virtualization technologies for active resource expansion has been attracting attention as a leading technology above all the other technologies. Big data took data prediction model to another level by providing the base for the analysis of unstructured data that could not have been analyzed in the past. Since what cloud services and big data have in common is the services and analysis based on mass amount of data, efficient operation and designing of mass data has become a critical issue from the early stage of development. Thus, in this paper, I would like to establish data processing architecture based on technological requirements of mass data for cloud and big data services. Particularly, I would like to introduce requirements that must be met in order for distributed file system to engage in cloud computing, and efficient compression technology requirements of mass data for big data and cloud computing in terms of cost-saving, as well as technological requirements of open-source-based system such as Hadoop eco system distributed file system and memory database that are available in cloud computing.

Late-Koryeo people networks were constructed from four different history books that were written by various historic aspects in the period from king Kongmin to the final king of the Koryeo, Kongyang. All networks constructed in this study show scale free network properties as if most social networks do. Tajo-sillok preface is one of subjectively written history book that described personal history of the Lee Seong-gye and his ancestors. It is confirmed that the book is one of the most biased-written history books through network study. Jeong Do-jeon known as a Chosun dynasty projector is not greatly contributed for founding of a Chosun dynasty in network study and various historical documents as well. In this network study, we provide objective historical information in the historical situations of the late-Koryeo and during establishment procedure of Chosun dynasty. Hub nodes in network is denoted highly linked nodes, called degree. Stress centrality is a unit to measure positional importancy in the network. If we employ two factors, degree and stress centrality to determine hub node, it represents high connectivity and importancy as well. As comparing values of the degree and stress centrality, we elucidate more objective historical facts from late-Koryeo situations in this study. If we further develop and employ a new algorithm that is considered both degree and stress centrality, it is a very useful tool for determining hub node.

Depression and mental illness across all age groups, and steady increasing in suicide rate are our major social problems which cause dramatically decreasing government competitiveness. While Korean government has implemented various policies to improve mental health and prevent suicide, it faces revealing issues in progress on implementation and referral management systems. The current research examined domestic and foreign cases to understand the actual status and directivity of ICT convergence plan in terms of mental health. The United States and the United Kingdom have provided convergent ICT service, telepsychiatric care to senior citizens in rural areas, children and adolescents, socially disadvantaged class, etc. In Korea, emergency-notice devices are installed to prevent suicide for single elderly people, and diverse mobile health devices are developing to cure depression and Alzheimer`s disease. ICT convergent mental health care service is needed to save socioeconomic costs and realize universal welfare for an aging society. Social consensus on sharply conflict issues, medical law and medical devices about telepsychiatry service, effectiveness studies on users` unique psychiatric characteristics by life cycle, and region-specialized strategies for the least densely populated rural regions with lower access to medical care should be considered.

As the construction industry becomes bigger and more complicated, standardization of terms should be established between academic and industrial fields in order to accumulate and share information technology. The aim of this study is to investigate and analyze the research trends and actual usage of construction and architectural terms in Korea. For this purpose, we examined research related to construction and architectural terms by searching RISS up to August 2014. We also analyzed document types and contents of research by year. As a result, 130 research studies related to construction and architectural terms were searched. Of document types, glossary ranks the highest, followed by academic journal papers, master`s theses and research reports. Research related to construction and architectural terms began in 1939, and was actively studied between the mid-1980s to the mid-1990s. Within the research, list and opinion of related construction and architectural terms are found the most frequently, followed by standardization, analysis, alteration, dictionary and wordbook, and search system of terms. Despite these efforts and research, standardization of terms has not yet been consolidated between academic and industrial fields. Therefor, we suggest six proposals in order to standardize the terms. This study is an attempt to see the trends and conditions of construction and architectural terms and to provide base-line data and an insight for future research.

This study examines university students` reading strategies based on English proficiency and reading anxiety. A total of 86 university students participated in the study and completed two questionnaires related to reading strategies and reading anxiety. The collected data was quantitatively analyzed using SPSS 21. The results indicated that advanced and intermediate students preferred to use Problem Solving Strategies(PROB), whereas beginning level readers tended to use and Global Reading strategies(GLOB). There was no significant relationship between reading anxiety and reading strategies. However, there were some differences between two groups. High anxiety students preferred to use reading materials and textual clues and try to focus on their reading when they have a difficulty. Low anxiety students tended to adjust reading pace and try to focus on comprehension and reread when they lost their focus. Based on the results of the study, several implications and limitations were discussed.

The purpose of this study was firstly, to explore the acceptability and acceptance intention of parents for smart animal toys and secondly, investigate whether there is a difference by sex and age. For this purpose, the questionnaire survey was conducted with 344 parents of younger children in Seoul and Gyeonggi Province. As a result, there were significant positive correlations among the relative advantage, aesthetics, social image of smart animal toys, the attitude of the new technology and the parents` acceptability. Whereas there were significant negative correlations among the acceptance risk and the parents` acceptability. The parents` acceptability showed differences in the relative advantages and social image according to the age of the parents and no significant difference according to purchasing experience of smart animal toys. These results indicated that the parents` acceptability and acceptance intention of smart animal toys were similar with the adoption process of innovative products or smart devices. And it was also informed that the most impact factors on parents` acceptance for smart toy were the relative advantage, social image, and the attitude of the new technology. This research will be useful in understanding parents purchasing intention of smart toys and provide valuable implication for smart toy companies, manufacturers, and developers.

This study was conducted to consider application methods of infographic that corresponds to the educational goals of English subject, which is applied with different teaching and learning standards than other subjects. The aim of this study is to analyze the types and the characteristics of `infographic completed by know-how learning`, in other words, `User behaviors involved infographic`, which is frequently used in English textbook. Based on an analysis according to the teaching and learning standards, infographic used in English textbook were suggested in three types, which are `General Concept`, `Significance` and `Signification` centered infographic. In addition, according to the level of diagram composition, the main visualization attributes were derived as `Overview`, `Structure`, `Relationships`, `Sequence`, `Transition between states` and `Messages`. The major findings of this study are as follows: First, it is necessary to conduct a study on diverse display methods for `Signification-centered infographic` that need to be displayed on the basis of two or more visual attributes. Second, as the purpose of application for applying infographic in English textbook collides with that in information design fields, it is found that verification is required on the educational effects in relation to this aspect.

`Fun` may be a basic desire of all human beings, but studies that combine both education and enjoyment were very limited, with the exception of the sports and games subjects. As a result, this study focused on the fun induced from the actual site of education, beginning under the premise that this can increase the effectiveness of education. In particular, it has been concluded that more fun is especially required in compulsory education that disregards one`s opinion, with the Social Service Personnel that are required to undergo two weeks of compulsory job training selected as the test subjects. In order to comprehend how the `fun factor` from the Social Service Personnel` job training influences the educational effectiveness, the causal relationship between learning flow, group flow and learning satisfaction has been proven using the structural equation model. Through this, the median between fun and education was found, as well as whether fun education has an actual effect on educational effectiveness. In addition, it is an opportuniy to emphasise the need for enjoyable education for not just Social Service Personnel, but for all involuntary learners.
