Her research focuses on how the flexiblization of labor that was regularized in the South Korean broadcast industry from the early 1990s affected gendered division of labor. This research stemmed from her interest in the role that female labor plays in sustaining the present global status of Korean Wave cultural products. She plans to carry out a comparative study on gender division and labor conditions within the popular culture industries in South Korea and in Japan, whose standing as a cultural producer is long-established within Asia. She is also working on research articles and book manuscript based on her PhD dissertation titled The Actors as Gendered Image Commodities within the Management-Structured Entertainment Industry in South Korea 1910-2009.
