An experimental study revealed how negative implicit/explicit attitudes toward South
Korea can be changed. Through diversity education, a pre-post-test cognitive intervention was conducted. Participants were 18 undergraduates. Following baseline assessments of implicit/explicit attitudes, attitude change was measured immediately after the intervention. Through three lectures, the cognitive intervention provided information about South Korea and Korean culture. The results showed that the cognitive intervention induced positive changes in the explicit attitude towards South Korea significantly. However, the implicit attitude remained unchanged. The limitation of present study and future perspectives were discussed.
