Recognized as being listed as a UNESCO Biosphere Reserve (2002), World Natural Heritage (2007), and World Geopark (2010), Jeju has been a representative tourist attraction in Korea since the 1980s. Moreover, it has been backed by well-established tourism infrastructures, such as excellent airport and port facilities and diversified related industries. In the era of the Fourth Industrial Revolution, Jeju continues to grow to future industries without factories. Under the blueprint of transforming the entire island into a smart city, Jeju has built a smart island where big data is naturally collected and used through diverse policies and support. It is also a “drone air city” that explores the potential of the drone industry in various fields, such as marine environmental monitoring, forest pest control, and urban safety service with drones. As such, the IT companies that moved to Jeju for work–life balance joined this trend and created synergy together.
