With the development of design practice in Korea during the 20th century, especially intense design promotions since the last decade of 20th century, the study of design and design research gradually established its place in Korean design practice and education. Although Korean design history is yet to be established as an academic discipline in Korea, there has been a notable development of research and publications on various elements of Korean modern and contemporary design and visual culture in recent years, little of which is known to English speaking scholars. The part 3 of this series introduces major works on Korean design written in Korean language and discusses the key themes that have emerged from these studies. Finally, the conclusion summarizes the observation that was made in three parts and makes suggestions for a productive way to connect and engage with these studies.
