Analysis of the chapter "I. Me and My Family Life" in Textbooks of Art-Home economics with a view of the Structural Functionalism
Journal of the Korean Home Economics Association , volume 40, issue 12, 2002, Pages 1~11
This paper is intended as an analysis of the Chapter on Family in textbooks of a Middle school course at the aspect of Parson's Structural Functionalism Theory. In this analysis, We'd like to explore how the value of family is expressed in the Art-Home Economics textbooks. Generally, family is a subsystem in the structural system of whole society and family has two main functions to promote stability and equilibrium from the Parson's Structural Functionalism Theory point of view. Today, the concern with the Structural Functionalism Theory is dominantly reflected in textbooks, even though it has been proposed that the Structural Functionalism is not appropriate to explain family of modem society. Like that, the question now arises: the family history and interaction is ignored in the Structural Functionalism Theory. That is to say, There are limitations of Structural Functionalism Theory. The textbooks of Art-Home Economics was based on the revised curriculum has been severely changed in terms of external system of textbooks. But, we didn't know how much the view of the Structural Functionalism Theory is involved in textbooks. In this article, we analyze the view of the Structural Functionalism Theory in the Art- Home Economics textbooks using the Contents Analysis. At the same time, we find the confusion of family value revealed in textbooks.
A Study on the Historical Tendency and Concrete Development of scholastic Consumer Education in Japan
Journal of the Korean Home Economics Association , volume 40, issue 12, 2002, Pages 13~29
The scholastic consumer education program in Japan was adopted after world war Ⅱ. And so far, based on home economics class at school, the program has undergone seven times modification with “A course of study(learning coaching guide). Now the main objective with the consumer education program, initiated from ‘purchasing skill’ and ‘information offer’, has been shifted to the direction of stressing the ‘reasonable decision making’ and ‘invocation of consumer recognition’. The concrete operation of the scholastic consumer education program in Japan was managed and operated to the direction of urging the student to think independently and self-motivated and provoking the power of thinking, while utilizing daily works closely to routine life as educational materials and subjects. The investigations on Japanese scholastic consumer education program which have been developing and accumulating concrete instances and know-how's of scholastic consumer education program are considered to be still suggestive, and we may conclude it's necessary for both of Korea and Japan to interchange necessary experiences and ideas on this field with each other.

Questionnaires research method was conducted and 477 samples were selected. Korean undergraduates have higher propensity of compensatory consumption for negative feelings than Japan undergraduates. Japan undergraduates have higher propensity of compensatory consumption for positive feelings than Korean undergraduates. Korean undergraduates have a tendency to compensate positive and negative feelings by drinking. Japan undergraduates have a tendency to compensate positive feelings by eating out, and to compensate negative feelings by buying books. In compensatory consumption for positive feelings, Korean undergraduates is influenced by group identity, but Japan undergraduates is influenced by reference group. Propensity of compensatory consumption of Korean undergraduates is mostly influenced by consumption tendency, materialism, group identity, and self-concept.

The strongest predictor of propensity of compensatory consumption of Korean and Japan undergraduates is consumption tendency, followed by materialism.

Journal of the Korean Home Economics Association , volume 40, issue 12, 2002, Pages 49~61
The purpose of this study was to investigate the effect of clothing involvement on the perceived risk in internet shopping and store selection criteria. The subjects used for the study were 210 male and 338 female college students. The clothing involvement consisted of pleasure, symbolism, and selection difficulty factors. The perceived risk consisted of size/defect risk, social psychological risk, privacy risk, delivery risk, and price risk. The store selection criteria had security/service, entertainment/variety, price/convenience factors. The results showed that consumers were segmented by four groups based on clothing involvement factors: clothing pleasure group, symbolism group, confidence group, and low clothing involvement group. The four segmented groups differed in regard to the perceived risk, store selection criteria, and demographics. For example, clothing pleasure group perceived the size/defect risk and social psychological risk higher than did the other groups.

Fruit, according to dyeing temperature, dyeing time, dyeing concentrations and various mordants. The results were as follows ; 1. The dyeabilities of the natural colorants extracted from Alnus firma fruit were investigated under various dyeing temperature, dyeing time and dyeing concentration.

A Study on Fitness and Awareness of Sizing System of Kids' Clothes - Focusing on a first to third year kids in Elementary School -
Journal of the Korean Home Economics Association , volume 40, issue 12, 2002, Pages 119~129

In terms of data analysis, frequency, percentage, mean, X²-test, ANOVA and Duncan-test were used via SPSS PC program. The result is as follows; 1. While the recognition on brand was high, the recognition on body size was low: as a result, it is believed that it would be effective to mark the weight along with the brand. 2. Many times, they would select one or two size bigger on all items and they would go for a regular or one that fits as far as filling is concerned showing that it is different from adult clothes. 3. As far as obese kids, they would choose based on the diameter, so the diameter item is right but they are too long in general. The length question should be given special attention when manufacturing clothes for obese kids

Journal of the Korean Home Economics Association , volume 40, issue 12, 2002, Pages 189~197
The purpose of the study is to analyze the suitability of ready-to-wear apparels for adult women by considering their body types. 341 women aged from 20 to 60 were surveyed for this study. The survey was taken from November, 1999 through November, 2000. The subjects were classified into 4 groups(thin, normal young aged, normal middle aged, fat) according to BMI and Rohrer index. For data analysis, descriptive statistics, crosstabs, F-test, Duncan-test were used. As the result, it is our findings that, in purchasing clothes, especially in case of pants, people choose them mostly based on waist and hip. However, in that the normal young aged group bases thigh circumference, we need to consider such points. As for one-piece, height was an important factor, while chest was the most important factor for the fat group. In relation to the suitability of ready-to-wear garments, the groups showed significant differences for blouses, one-pieces, and jackets, respectively. Blouses didn't fit 29.8% of the fat group, and one pieces fitted thin or normal subjects to some extent. However, one pieces didn't fit 34% of the fat group while jackets didn't fit 51.4% of them. This result shows that there are difficulties in choosing clothes dependent on body types.
