Abstract: This article shows that fundamental aspects of the structure of momentary affect are similar in Korean and Canadian societies. We developed questionnaire scales in Korean in four different formats for assessing momentary affect. Scales can be scored for Feldman Barrett and Russell's (1998) Pleasant, Unpleasant, Activated, and Deactivated, Thayer's (1996) energetic and tense arousal, Larsen and Diener's (1992) eight combinations of pleasantness and activation, and Watson and Tellegen's (1985) Positive Affect and Negative Affect. In a sample of 365 Koreans, the new scales were found to be psychometrically sound and to be interrelated as found with English-speaking Canadians: Dimensions could be integrated into a two-dimensional bipolar affective space.
