A Study on Photofading of Cellulose Fabrics Dyed with Safflower Red Colorants
Shin, Youn-Sook ; Choi, Seung-Youn ;
Journal of the Korean Home Economics Association , volume 46, issue 10, 2008, Pages 1~9
The purpose of this study was to increase uv-cut ability of cotton, ramie, and rayon fabrics dyed with safflower red colorants. For this purpose, samples treated with uv-cut agent and tannic acid were compared with the untreated samples after ultraviolet(uv)-light exposure in terms of K/S value, color changes(
), SEM, and tensile strength retention. K/S value rapidly decreased with increasing exposure time, but K/S value of the samples treated with both uv-cut agent and tannic acid decreased less than that of untreated samples. As increasing exposure time,
decreased, and so
increased, indicating less red character and more yellow character in color. This leads to change hue, value and chroma value. But color change of samples treated with both uv-cut agent and tannic acid was less than that of untreated samples. SEM pictures showed a severe degradation by uv exposure in all samples. Tensile strength slowly decreased for 21 days. And after this point, the decreased proceeded more rapidly. Tensile strength retention of the samples treated with uv-cut agent and tannic acid was higher than that of untreated samples.
The Influence of Parenting Stress, Communication Strategy and Socio-demographic Variables on Family Strengths
Park, Bok-Mae ; Moon, Hyuk-Jun ;
Journal of the Korean Home Economics Association , volume 46, issue 10, 2008, Pages 11~22
This study was conducted to examine how family strengths are affected by parenting stress, socio-demographic factors and communication strategy, with a specific focus on mothers with young children. In total, 418 mothers of 4-5 years old children were included in this study. Higher education achievement was significantly related to higher communication strategy and better family strengths. However educational background had no effect on degree of parenting stress. Lower household income was related to higher parenting stress while higher income resulted in stronger family strengths. However family income showed no correlation with communication strategy. Lower parenting stress and higher communication strategy contributed to better family strengths, The most influential factor of family strengths was parenting stress.

Kim, Jung-Won ; Kim, You-Jung ;
Journal of the Korean Home Economics Association , volume 46, issue 10, 2008, Pages 23~36
The purpose of this study is to analyze the research trends about the child care center accreditation system in Korea which has been practiced relatively recently. To solve the research problems, 68 pieces of master's theses, doctoral dissertations, and journal articles were analyzed. The results of this study are as follows: First, since 2005 when the research about the child care center accreditation system was first applied, the number of research has increased dramatically over the year 2006 and 2007. Also, majority of the research was done mostly in the region of Seoul and Gyeonggi-do compared to other regions. Second, the child care center accreditation system administration was the most frequently researched topic, followed by the evaluation on the child care center accreditation system, and the general understanding and recognition of the child care center accreditation system. Third, quantitative method was used most frequently to research the child care center accreditation system, and literature review and qualitative method were used relatively less. Most of the research subjects were the child care center directors and teachers. The sample size of the research was relatively big, and most of the survey were either made by the researcher or were modified and adjusted from the previously used survey questions according to the present research. Most of the data analysis of quantitative study were done with descriptive statistics, and with t-test, chi-square, and ANOVA and there was only one done with correlation analysis.
Characteristics of Givenchy Haute Couture
Kim, Sun-Young ;
Journal of the Korean Home Economics Association , volume 46, issue 10, 2008, Pages 37~48
This study re-examines new aesthetic values pursued by Givenchy, analyzing by the Haute Couture line's chief designers. The following conclusions have been reached: Hubert de Givenchy pursued modernity, infused with simplicity and structured stability. In particular, Audrey Hepburn, who was a loyal client and used his line in several movies, provided him the platform for international exposure which he used to further develop what became known as the "Hepburn" style. The subsequent brief tenure of John Galliano did yield the fantastic and magnificent "Galliano-style", but with irregularity. Based on romanticism, it redefined fashion using a wide range of colors, subjects and decoration. His successor, Alexander McQueen, applied opposite elements using a hybrid technique of pastiche, parody and collage. With innovative inspiration he compromised the concepts of gender, time, space and cultures and recreated futuristic forms of nature, animals, insects and mythical images. Julien Macdonald, who was appointed in 2001 as the Artistic Director for the women's collections, minimized his individual style and preferred feminine, graceful and sexy silhouettes. He breathed fresh life in to Givenchy Haute Couture, reinterpreting the Hepburn style in a modernistic mode. Being passed on the responsibility for both collections (i.e., haute couture and ready-to-wear) in 2005, Riccardo Tisci redefined elegance, combining his unique and tailored gothic style with Givenchy's grace. He is developing the future of Givenchy, experimenting with volume, silhouettes, new kinds of fabric and techniques.

Lee, Bong-Jae ; Oh, Yun-Jin ;
Journal of the Korean Home Economics Association , volume 46, issue 10, 2008, Pages 49~57
The purpose of this study was to examine the relationship between household types and suicide ideation among elderly people in Korea. We collected information on 220 elderly individuals(aging over 60), 171 of whom were living alone and 49 of whom were living with their families. The results showed that; 1) number of children, health status, level of stress, and depressive symptoms were all related to the suicide ideation among both groups, and 2) individuals living alone had lower sense of control, were more stressed, and more likely to suffer from depression. Based on these results, various implications were discussed and practical suggestions provided.

Jung, Ji-Nyun ; Kwon, Gi-Young ;
Journal of the Korean Home Economics Association , volume 46, issue 10, 2008, Pages 59~69
The purpose of this study was to analyze the changes and intended meanings of decorations in women pants. Cross correlation was used to analyze 1829 pictures which appeared in national fashion magazines from 1969 to 2005. Three analysis categories were used: 1. type of decoration, 2. style, 3. fabric. The results of this investigation were as follows: (a) the decoration gave salience to the expressive function on the pants by merging different things, (b) the decoration acted on expressive media of new feminine beauty, and (c) the decoration reflected cultural identity through the addition of elements that represents different cultures or subcultures.
An Analysis of Adolescents' Perceived Risk on Conformity Behavior of Fashion Brand
Jun, Dae-Geun ;
Journal of the Korean Home Economics Association , volume 46, issue 10, 2008, Pages 71~81
This study aimed to identify the effects of adolescents' perceived risk on fashion brand conformity behavior. To analyze conformable fashion brand behavior with consideration to their reference group, 6 dimensions of perceived risk were adopted as explanatory variables. Reference group means people that a person refers to when evaluating his values & behaviors. Data were collected from 672 male and female students aged between 14 and 18. Factor analysis on perceived risk resulted in 6 dimensional structures: socio-psychological, time loss, functional, fashionability loss, performance and opportunity loss risk. Fashionability loss risk positively affected adolescent fashion brand conformity behavior according to their favorite celebrities. Performance risk positively affected in consideration to their parents, while opportunity loss risk had a negative effect on the same reference group. However, socio-psychological and fashionability loss risk positively affected adolescent fashion brand conformity behavior in consideration to their friends, while performance loss risk had negative effect on the same reference group. Adolescent groups divided by the 6 dimensions of perceived risk showed meaningful differences in their fashion brand conformable behavior in consideration to their reference groups.

Kwon, Yoon-A ; Kim, Deuk-Sung ;
Journal of the Korean Home Economics Association , volume 46, issue 10, 2008, Pages 83~96
Using a sample of 107 married couples, this study investigated the influence of self-reported argument-communication behaviors on marital satisfaction. The results were as follows. (a) Wives used more criticism, contempt, and self-assertion during marital arguments than husbands. There were no significant gender differences in the levels of defensiveness, stonewalling, and active listening. (b) Multilevel analyses indicated that marital satisfaction was predicted by the person's own level of self-assertion and stonewalling(i.e., actor effects) and by his or her spouse's level of stonewalling(i.e., partner effect). No other significant actor and partner effects were found. Also, there were no significant gender differences in the sizes of effects. (c) A cluster analysis of both spouses' communication behaviors during marital arguments identified four distinct groups of married couples. : mutual constructive, husband constructive-wife destructive, husband destructive-wife constructive, and mutual destructive. Mutual constructive couples reported the best marital satisfaction.

Lee, Kang-Yi ; Sung, Mi-Young ; Chang, Young-Eun ;
Journal of the Korean Home Economics Association , volume 46, issue 10, 2008, Pages 97~106
We examined the effects of family and home literacy environments on the vocabulary and reading abilities of 3 to 5-year-olds. In particular, SES was considered against home literacy environment. The sample consisted of 366 Korean children and their mothers. We found that the level of mother's education was related to the child's vocabulary test score. After controlling for family factors, home literacy environment score positively predicted children's performance both in vocabulary and reading tests. Magnitudes of differences between the two literacy groups (high and low home literacy environment) became larger in the children from relative lower income families. Magnitudes of differences for vocabulary and reading tests was strikingly large in the low-income group both in vocabulary and reading tests. These findings shed lights on the importance of parent education and family services for low-income families with preschool children.

Yoon, Su-On ; Shin, Seo-Young ; Yang, Il-Sun ;
Journal of the Korean Home Economics Association , volume 46, issue 10, 2008, Pages 107~117
The purpose of this study was to analyze customer attraction effects of restaurant promotion for kids. The questionnaires were distributed to 300 parents who have children under 12 years old and a total of 269 questionnaires were collected and used in analysis(usage rate 90.0%). The data was analyzed using SPSS 12.0 for descriptive analysis and paired t-test. The major results were as follows; First, customers mainly got information on coupon from mail. In case of premium and membership, the information was obtained when customers were visiting restaurants. Second, among the types of promotion for kids, coupon was mostly preferred by customers. 'Discount coupon' for the coupon, 'free gift' for the premium and 'pay-back' program for the membership were more preferable than other types of kids promotion. Third, A 'discount coupon' was more effective than 'free coupon'(p<.0l) in term of customer inducement. In case of premium, 'free gift' was more effective than 'lottery'(p<.05) and in case of membership, the customer attraction effect was not significantly different according to the types of membership. In case of coupon and membership, it was more effective in family restaurant than fastfood restaurant(p<.05), but the effect of premium was not significantly different in family vs fastfood restaurant. The results of the study revealed that 'coupon' was the most preferred type of promotion for kids and specifically customers preferred 'discount coupon', 'free gift' and 'pay-back program'.

Yoo, Doo-Ryon ;
Journal of the Korean Home Economics Association , volume 46, issue 10, 2008, Pages 119~132
The aim of this study was to analyse the consumer dissatisfaction, complaint and repurchase intentions in foodservices with a particular focus on college students. For this investigation we analysed the responses of 520 college students interviewed from Daegu Gyeongbuk Province. The SPSS/WIN version 12.0 and AMOS version 6.0 were used to analyse collected data. The results were as follows : 1) Factor analysis identified 5 different consumer dissatisfaction factors: facilities, waiter/waitresses behavior, food quality, service, store operating. The level of food quality dissatisfaction was most high. Consumer complaints came in three forms: public, personally and no action. The level of personal complaint was most high. 2) AMOS analysis found that public complaints had the most influence on repurchase intentions. 3) Dissatisfaction was highest with fast food restaurants, which also received the most public complaints. 4) Dissatisfaction, complaints, and compensation strongly influenced eating-out and spending motivation of college students.

Kim, Hyun-Joo ; Rha, Jong-Youn ;
Journal of the Korean Home Economics Association , volume 46, issue 10, 2008, Pages 133~146
This study investgates the factors influencing the levels of consumer satisfaction and life satisfaction of resident foreigners in Korea. The data were collected through a structured self-administered survey and 545 foreigners who lived in Korea for more than 3 months, with age over 20 participated as respondents. A research framework was formulated based on the resource constraint hypothesis and the study investigated the impact of information resource(human, media and internet information source) and consumer resource(monthly income, language ability and consumer proficiency) on the levels of consumer satisfaction and life satisfaction. The results from data analysis can be summarized as follows; First, analysis of consumer problems of resident foreigners in Korea indicated that resident foreigners recognize a burden for residence cost, food expense and education fee. Most of resident foreigners in Korea are found to use small local shops most often indicating they may experience adverse market environment due to resource constraint such as language or psychological barrier, and most of the respondents answered that the most often used payment method was cash. Furthermore, resident foreigners in Korea responded that lack of language service, lack of information provision, inability to use certain goods and services are the common cause of consumer dissatisfaction, as well as price and quality problems. Second, the level of consumer satisfaction (2.96 in 4.0) is higher than the level of life satisfaction (2.63 in 4.0). Third, the level of life satisfaction is significantly influenced by Korean language ability and the level of consumer satisfaction. The level of consumer satisfaction is by the media information source usage and consumer claim experience. Fourth, the level of consumer satisfaction is found to be the variable with the strongest causal relationship with the level of life satisfaction.
