Legislation related to the protection of cultural properties in Korea has its roots in the period of Japanese colonial rule. The development of Korea’s heritage management policies reflects a growing recognition of cultural property as representing historical and cultural value beyond mere private possession, and a revalorizing of folk culture in particular. The various measures and procedures that apply to Korean intangible cultural properties today suggest that in the official recognition of traditions and their representatives, hierarchy is more important than skill.
