Saemaul Undong,
Contributing to the Development
of the Republic of Korea

In 1970,

the Saemaul Undong began as a national policy and spread nationwide as a result of the public’s desire to escape from poverty and the will of the nation that promoted modernization of the country.

The Saemaul Undong Archives has reorganized the records of the Saemaul Undong, which has been the driving force of economic development, and digitized the non-conventional records to permanently use and preserve the Saemaul Undong related materials of the Republic of Korea.

The Saemaul Undong Archives will be used as valuable material to raise awareness of the Saemaul Undong not only for academics but also for ordinary citizens by establishing the public consensus on the Saemaul Undong and re-examining the value of the historical records.
