  • Adolescent media addiction has emerged as an important social agenda in Korea. However, there has not been enough discussion on the causal structure of media addiction and policy interventions. The objective of this study is to identify and assess the mechanism of the existing and the revised Shutdown policy based on the systems thinking approach. To achieve this purpose, we establish the relationship between media usage, flow, and addiction, and develop a causal loop diagram. Based on the causal loop diagram, we explore the causal structure of two policy scenarios: shutdown policy and deregulation. Our study suggests that policy interventions inducing direct parental control on children's media usage time are ineffective since the time control reduces children's autonomy, which helps alleviate media addiction. Therefore, this study suggests that policy intervention should focus on alleviating addiction itself rather than on controlling media usage time.

  • Based on the development of IT(information technology), the explosive diffusion and growth of the new media and services in Korea has attracted keen international attention. The construction of IT infrastructure driven by the proactive social informatization policy of the government has also been spectacular. Korea has persistently pursued strong 'new media-informatization policy' with three main objectives in mind: 1)Industrial-economic value creation; 2)socio-cultural value creation; and 3)building of the knowledge society-knowledge state. But its consequence is rather paradoxical. While its performance is excellent in terms of quantity growth of industry and technology, quality development of society, culture and knowledge creation is lagging far behind. This paradoxical outcome originates, not from any simple policy error, but from a structural problem inherent in new media-informatization policy in Korea which has long been captured by developmentalism. In order for Korea to harvest the reward of strong new media-informatization infrastructure, it needs to institute a policy structure based on a knowledge IT strategy such as research and development of core and patent technologies, design and production of quality contents, networking knowledge bases of society, etc.

  • The convergence of media poses serious challenges to technologies, industries and policy makers. At the core of the challenges lies a socially and culturally problematic condition of 'media unlimited.' Under the circumstances, the idea of public interest of the media seems to lose its intervening leverage as it flounders in countering 'the media torrent' rushing from the exponential growth of ICTs that overwhelms contemporary life and society. It is an urgent task for the critical community to blaze fresh new thoughts about the idea to intervene in the current age of media excess. Beyond the conventional content-conduit-centered perspective on the media, this study suggests a media-environment concept based on media ecology as an engaging leverage to replenish the public interest idea. The environmental approach to the media means literally to conceptualize the media as environment--a cultural eco-system. This study explores the potential of ecological approach in enriching the conceptual terrain of policy discussions and policy-making processes concerning the public interest idea that hopefully enlightens all the media actors concerned.

  • In the creative economy paradigm, motivation of the opportunity based startup is a continuous concern to policy-makers. Recently, bigdata anlalytics challenge traditional methods by providing efficient ways to identify social trend and hidden issues in the public sector. In this study the authors introduce a case study using social bigdata analytics for conducting policy analysis. A semantic network analysis was employed using textual data from social media including online news, blog, and private bulletin board which create buzz on the startup business. Results indicates that each media has been forming different discourses regarding government's policy on the startup business. Furthermore, semantic network structures from private bulletin board reveal unexpected social burden that hiders opening a startup, which has not been found in the traditional survey nor experts interview. Based on these results, the authors found the feasibility of using social bigdata analysis for policy-making. Methodological and practical implications are discussed.

  • Nowadays, Smart media services such as smartphone applications are proliferated through the convergence of social media and the information and communication technologies(ICT). In many countries, the ICT policy is strategically used to solve the economic recession and high unemployment rate caused by the global financial crisis. However, the Korean ICT policies have declined with the abolition of the Ministry of information and communication. This paper suggests the dynamic quality of life as a philosophical foundation of Korean ICT policy and the dynamic policy PR methods for the social consultation and people's approval(national consensus), because the component of dynamic quality of life are embodied in the elements of ICT policy that should be realized through the governance, in which both Korean government and people produce and consume the ICT policies together in the era of smart media.
