This paper examines the long-run consumption expectation factor model and human capital expectation factor model by income classes based on a Korean microeconomic database. In the empirical specification of these models, we found that the performance of these models over sixteen Fama-French size and book-to-market portfolios in KRX (Korean Exchange) as test assets exceeded that of benchmark models such as CAPM, Fama-French three factor model, or CCAPM. This analysis enables one to test the long-run risk hypothesis (LRRH) and the limited stock market participation hypothesis (LMPH) by income class under each model. The main test results are summarized as follows. First, there is no empirical evidence for LRRH but for LMPH via the consumption growth factor model. Second, data is supportive for both of LRRH and LMPH via the human capital factor model. These results are followed by the specific features of the consumption and labor income of each income class over the last thirty years in Korea, namely, the differentiated volatility of consumption and the differentiated sources of income by each income class. These features of consumption and income in Korea suggest the task that the policy authority should pursue in the growth process of the Korean asset market.
