Shadow education in the stage of basic education is fairly popular in China and South Korea. It is also an important issue that the governments and all circles of society in China and South Korea pay high attention to. This paper analyzes the status quo of shadow education in China and South Korea, compares the extracurricular education in both countries, and provides reference for parents to treat shadow education rationally and the government to perfect and standardize after-school tutoring policies based on the status quo and policy experience of shadow education.
