Driven for one beliefs of neoliberalism and display commercialism, the university in South Korea has currently happened conducted and enhance to a greater extent corporatized under the framework of pioneering academic reliance. Under this view, we explain the academic reliance and corporatization of, particularly, Korean colleges by defining three important occurrences: first, the current attempt by Korean colleges to select the American chronicle authorization arrangement; second, the incorporation of the academies to Chabeol to create academies more ambitious and effective; and triennial, Korean institution of higher education tactics for extending English-intervened courses in their syllabuses. The hypothetical foundation concerning this paper is the critique of neo-expansionist doctrine, neo-tolerance, and the fault-finding hypotheses. The certain purposes of university, that shouldn’t have in mind alone apiece rationale of contest and controlled success, are belittled by these changes, in accordance with our debate, that create bureaucracy illegitimate and have a negative affect the atmospheres of university and academicians in Korea. Additionally, these modifications disregard the independence of idea, talk, and study in lecturers’ and undergraduates’ native expressions. We offer alternate aspects and forms for the Korean scholarly world to renew their own academic independence and freedom.
