There have been many changes, especially in the recent years, in the public sector of Korea. And the governance on which the public sector, in specific the government, rests on is facing new challenges as the paradigm of work process itself is changing from paper-based procedures to electronic online flow of information. The writers of this paper feel that at the center of these changes towards a new e-government is the data. When data becomes the core of the future, the values of e-government will manifest in a different manner based on a totally different paradigm, thus necessiting a change in the legal framework of e-government. This paper seeks to review today's trend and the direction of tomorrow's legal framework for e-government to enable implementation of future e-government oriented on data.
