In Korea, museum collections have long been comprised of mementos rather than specimens of the national heritage. Even so, Korean cultural properties have served the national interests of various administrations since the early 1960s. Although the cultural policies of previous military governments promoted patriotism and national pride, they also nurtured a cultural cringe that would prove hard to erase. Today, however, Korea’s intangible heritage supports the Korean Wave, which brought an end to the cultural cringe in the late 1990s.
