Abstract
This article explores the two competing democratic concepts of liberalism and political equality in Korean politics. In the development of Korean democracy, liberalism has evolved as a form of anticommunism as a way to pursue social stability; meanwhile, political equality has emerged by means of civic participation as a way to seek equal opportunities to be involved in decision making. This article traces how political equality has tended to expand from the time of Kim Young-sam to the Roh Moo-hyun administrations, while liberalism dominated during the administrations of Lee Myung-bak and Park Geun-hye. In addition, this article identifies different trends of civic participation between the progressive governments that promoted civilian ascendancy and the conservative governments that showed uncommunicative leadership in the decision-making process. © 2021 by INSTITUTE OF KOREAN STUDIES.
