The purpose of this study is to examine the perspective of gender in Korean textbooks in the Korea Immigration and Integration Program(KIIP), and to provide basic materials to develop more balanced gender consciousness and to reflect the reality of gender consciousness in Korean society. The purpose of this study was to analyze Korean language textbooks for KIIP. Korean textbooks in KIIP are graded from 0 to 4 levels. However, in this study, level 0 and the beginning level 1 were excluded. The study mainly analyzed illustrations, specifically pictures including those that depict the characters in the textbooks, as well as texts, specifically, the sentences, exercises, an listening dialogues of the target grammar. This study analyzed the gender roles and gender stereotypes in the illustrations and texts in Korean textbooks. As a result, gender stereotypes that were biased to one side in the elementary and intermediate textbooks were suggested or implicitly recognized in a whole society Therefore, in order for migrants to adapt to Korean society, it is necessary to suggest the correct gender role of Korean society within the Korean textbook. To this end, it is necessary to consider the part that can be perceived as one-sided gender stereotypes, and education on the proper recognition of gender and gender equality must be carried out in the development of textbooks.
