Korea has made a significant progress in digital government. According to UN survey of digital government development which is done biennially , Korea has been in the top ranking. This achievement was done by strong drive and investment by government. But as technology has been getting ahead of policy making process and society has been getting more complex, government-driven digital government policy has encountered a limit.
