interesting thing here is that the South Korean version of the paradigm dispute did not
take place on how the media culture phenomena of South Korea have been and will be
researched. Rather, it was concentrated on the methodological and epistemological
aspects, including how the two paradigms are different, how can the two research
tendencies be integrated, while importing the dispute that took place in the U.S. just the
way it is.
If we take a look at the whole mapping of South Korea’s cultural studies, critical
MCS had been concentrated on introducing foreign theories, and it was carried out
separately from the grassroots popular culture movements, which had formed one axis
of the democratization movement. The latter grassroots popular culture movements
were movements for intervening in social transformations in the cultural realm centered
on the laborers’ and farmers’ culture movements, from the 1970s. Even if the movement
had failed by excessively recognizing the class culture to be a mechanical and
deterministic formation, critical culture studies did not go in the direction of having
such a movement change in appearance and succeeding. And, by selecting a cut-off
from the movement, critical cultural studies brought forth the error of introducing
foreign theories or dealing with cultural formations on the abstract level.
Cultural studies were busy just catching up with Western theories, as can be seen in
the import of the postmodernism dispute at the end of the 1980s and the import of the
modernity dispute in the mid-1990s. And, it was not until the latter half of the 1990s
that cultural studies regarding research on such local and historical problematic as the
Americanization of South Korean culture, the developmentalist mentality, and colonial
modernity, etc. was carried out.
