The developmental state approach has all too often concentrated on the strong state as a unitary actor or, at best, has been biased toward bureaucratic actors. In the Korean case, such a perspective undervalues the dominance that the presidency has historically had over bureaucratic actors and how personal preferences have often overruled bureaucratic policy recommendations. The influence of the president becomes particularly evident when seen in the context of technological development as a device for economic and industrial development.
As a result, the highly active role that Korean institutional actors have played in comprehensive economic and industrial planning and the implementation of measures that made it possible for Korea to control technological inflows and deepen its technological capacities have sometimes been overlooked (see Chang 1993; Clark and Chan 1994; Jones and Sakong 1980; Johnson 1987; Mardon 1990; Wade 1992). Indeed, the evidence on Korea runs counter to neoclassical assumptions and positions on economic development.

A Preview of Our Findings In the past decade, Korea has undergone profound political change.
