The series “A Sourcebook” organizes and provides primary data sorted by subjects and areas on the understanding of and research into modern Korean society and culture in an attempt to meet academic interest on the foreign study of Korea in its rapid achievements of industrialization, democratization, and social change.

"Since Culin’s pioneering work on the leisure activities published in 1895, a century has passed. However, more than half of the leisure activities mentioned in Culin remains only in text.
The rapid industrialization experienced by the Korean peninsula in the last decades may have devaluated or endangered traditional Korean leisure activities, which this book aims to renew. As the largest collection of Korean leisure activities, this book includes 33 leisure activities that are deemed the most traditional and representative, highlighting their physical and metaphysical values, and is hoped to serve as the cornerstone for contemporary scholars as a source book for traditional Korean leisure activities."
