Abstract:

The presidential staff system in Korea is now a well-developed and necessary resource for the occupant of the Office of the President, which has become known as Blue House, and it is difficult to imagine how presidents could have responded to the pressures and demands without such staff assistance. But it is also true that the development of the presidential staff system has become problematic and the size of the staff is only one part of that problem. This article examines the structure of Blue House, focusing on its organizational changes. The modern presidential staff system in Korea evolved greatly during the Park Chung Hee presidency. His era marked the transformation of the presidency from a small, personalized office to a collection of specialized bureaucracies with hundreds of professional staffers.
