This chapter addresses Korea’s difficult past and how it has become the object of the dark tourist’s gaze. Following an overview of dark tourism in South Korea, it centres on approaches to victims of state crime through the case of the memorialisation of the 1948 Jeju 4:3 massacre of insurgents and civilians: an atrocity that occurred in the run-up to the Korean War.
