"Ubiquitous" has been the key buzzword in the research community as well as in everyday life these days. In Korea, ubiquitous become decorative words for many new products, which has not necessarily enough link to the world of ubiquitous. In research field, many public, private sectors research activities decorated with the word of "ubiquitous" has drawn so much attention, but still, little examples are shown which truly implements the ideals of "Ubiquitous". In this paper, we review the research activities under the flag of "ubiquitous", and then present possible research directions for proper research directions which can prompt practical incorporation of ubiquitous concept in the near future.
