This paper investigates how the relationships between shareholder activism of institutional investors and independence of the board of directors affect firm value in KOSPI from 2005 to 2014. We measure shareholders activism in `vote no` ratio and use independence of the board of directors to independent outside board of directors. We find that the higher opposite ratio of institutional investors` voting right, the better improving the independence of board of directors. In addition, the improving effect of firm value by opposite voting from institutional investors is more significant in case of being better independence of board of directors. Also, the effect of interaction between `no` voting ratio and improvement of board of directors` independence is observed significance in the bottom section that is satisfied with managerial entrenchment hypothesis. As a result, active shareholder behaviors of institutional investors improve the governance of target firm and control the optimistic managers. So, we suggest that institutional investors carry out their duties faithfully.
