1. A method for receiving a Wi-Fi service in a wireless LAN station supporting an application service platform (ASP), comprising:
receiving, by the ASP, a first seek service message and acquiring information on a wireless LAN station providing the Wi-Fi service through a Wi-Fi direct connectivity by using the first seek service message;
receiving, by the ASP, a second seek service message and acquiring information on a wireless LAN station providing the Wi-Fi service through a Wi-Fi Infrastructure connectivity by using the second seek service message;
selecting any one of the Wi-Fi direct connectivity and the Wi-Fi Infrastructure connectivity, based on the information acquired by using the first seek service message and the second seek service message, and receiving the Wi-Fi service by using the selected connectivity; and
determining whether or not to receive the Wi-Fi service through a connectivity that is different from the connectivity selected between the Wi-Fi Direct connectivity and the Wi-Fi Infrastructure connectivity.
