This study validated the recovery experience questionnaire developed by Sonnentag & Fritz (2007) using a Korean sample (N = 286). The four-factor model consisting of psychological detachment, relaxation, mastery, and control was also applied to this Korean sample, and each subscale showed a high internal consistency. Job demands, job control, technology usage during weekend, leisure motivation, burnout, and physical symptoms were measured to examine how they were related to weekend recovery experience. Implications of the results and directions for future research were discussed. In particular, cross-cultural research was suggested.
