This article aims to facilitate the transition from politics-oriented management to risk-oriented management in the field of Korean emergency management by analyzing the barriers and alternatives around three key players, namely, (1) the National Assembly, (2) the National Emergency Management Agency, and (3) business corporations. These three players have continued to focus on managing both fire and flood due to typhoon by utilizing politics-oriented management. In other words, when the other risks occur, Korea will surely face related catastrophe. Therefore, it is urgent for Korea to manage all kinds of risks equally, including fire and flood due to typhoon, by embarking on risk-oriented management.
