These outcomes, of course, have brought upon themselves the contempt of some critics, a "Republic of Sports", but we should not pass over that they made a decisive moment to turn the situation of Korean sports toward that of the advanced nations, consequently. This study have indicated that there should be an inclusive comprehension and evaluation in arguing 80's sports advancement policy. Moreover, it is clear that a negative evaluation on a policy input put in a context of the times should not be led to a devaluation of a policy outcome and exclusive policy.The 1980's advancement policy of physical education and sports had developed on the basis of the strong public power of government: for example, they organized the Ministry of Sports.
