The Aesthetic Characteristics of a Red Costumes in Contemporary Fashion
Kim, Sun-Young ;
Journal of the Korean Home Economics Association , volume 46, issue 3, 2008, Pages 1~12
This study examines the unique characteristics of the color red in relation to images used in areas other than fashion, such as the film or advertising industries. Based on analysed results, the aim was to identify red-colored costume's images expressed in contemporary fashion. Analysis of collected data has lead to four main findings. First, the fashion in which the red color is used delivers a voluptuous image when combined with a skinny silhouette or glossy and transparent dress material, arousing a strong sexual desire in a direct or indirect manner when exposing the body in public. Second, the fashion emphasizes a simplified appearance by minimizing the steps of the production process such as cutting, sewing, and decoration without artificial structural lines and creates an image of simplicity through a single red color or tone-in-tone colorations. Third, the red color, which carries a simultaneous negative and pleasure image represents grotesque playfulness by distorting or exaggerating clothes, transforming the body in disregard of clothing construction, or introducing unnatural makeup. Fourth, in combination of simple and clinging shapes, a material feeling tough like leather and an intensely noticeable red tone, promotes the feminine rather than masculine quality in a splendid, aggressive sporty and active "alpha girl" image.

Journal of the Korean Home Economics Association , volume 46, issue 3, 2008, Pages 13~26
This study aims to offer basic data for consumer education regarding the use of mobile phones by adolescent consumers in a correct way by researching and analyzing the consumption value and consumption behavior of adolescent consumers for mobile phones to see how they use mobile phone as consumers, which is a serious of user behaviors according to their plan, purchase, use, and disposal. Based on the research results, the study proposes the following in relation to the correct use of mobile phones by adolescent consumers. First, in the purchase or use of mobile phones, a more demonstrative consumption pattern was more likely for males than females and for those who are in higher grades than those who are not. Therefore, it is necessary to offer consumer education given the gender and school year rather than stereotyped consumer education. Second, it is necessary to offer objective information and give consumer education for checking the instant desire for something new in order to prevent an impulsive purchase based upon advertisements given the characteristics of adolescent consumers who prefer new designs or functions. Third, regarding the disposal of mobile phones, it is necessary to seek strategies for recycling mobile phones usefully at an administrative level to prevent mobile phones from being thrown away without being recycled.

Kim, Myung-Sun ; Oh, Ok-Hee ;
Journal of the Korean Home Economics Association , volume 46, issue 3, 2008, Pages 27~36
This study was conducted to investigate the recognition and uses of Codonopsis lanceolata. A survey methodology was employed consisted of 37.8% males and 62.2% females from the Seoul and Kyunggido area. The main results are as follows: The majority of respondents 60.7% males and 74.1% females indicated a preference for Korean food across all generational age classes. The specific preference for codonopsis lanceolata was indicated by the majority of males individuals in the forty to age group and by the teenage to thirty age bracket. The most popular reason provided for the preference of codonopsis lanceolata was good health benefits. People indicating a dislike for codonopsis lanceolata had little previous experience of eating this plant. Codonopsis lanceolata also appeared in 7.9% males and 9.0% females of small food transactions with 37.0% males and 36.6% females of respondents indicating supermarkets and traditional markets as their preferred shopping locations. In relation to cooking methods roasting was nominated by 36.0% males and 49.3% females of respondents. Codonopsis lanceolata was acknowledged as having the following characteristics "prevention of adult disease", "low calorie the diet food", and "high dietary fiber", but was not associated with "good flavor" and "established cooking method", "good health benefits from saponin", and "good for alexipharmic and expectorant". Recognition and eating experience was low for codonopsis lanceolata kimchi and Kimchi, rice bread, bread and sauce added with codonopsis lanceolata. However the opinion of taste appeared highly among respondents, especially in the twenties and teenage age groups.

Lee, Seong-Lim ; Park, Myung-Hee ;
Journal of the Korean Home Economics Association , volume 46, issue 3, 2008, Pages 37~47
This study investigated (1) consumer perception about the level of electricity price, (2) the amount of household electricity consumption, and (3) consumer perception on electricity pricing system reform. For data collection, a national wide survey was conducted between November 22 and December 15, 2006. Excluding 233 cases, because of incomplete responses, data from 1767 households were analyzed. The major findings were as follows; More than 50% of the respondents consumed between 100-300kWh of electricity per month. Household size and income were significantly associated with electricity consumption. Approximately 50% of respondents perceived that electricity was being overcharged. Approximately 50% of the respondents positively evaluated the effects of the graduation pricing system. Households consuming more than 300kWh of electricity per month preferred a flat unit price. Based on these results, we suggest the implications to reforming the electricity pricing system.
The Effect of Green Tea Extracts on the Fermentation Properties of Polyphenol-Enriched Beers
Yom, Heng-Cherl ;
Journal of the Korean Home Economics Association , volume 46, issue 3, 2008, Pages 49~55
The purpose of this study was to investigate the effects of green tea extracts (GTE) on the fermentation properties of polyphenol-enriched beers. As such, the formation patterns of tannoid in beer with GTE were investigated at 3 different infusion times, while the ale and the lager beers fortified with GTE were analyze to ascertain effects on gravity, pH, yeast viability, total polyphenol, and tannoid during fermentation period. The results were as follows: 1) The formation of tannoid in beer with GTE in the tannometer; In reaction of GTE with polyvinylpyrrolidon (PVP), control lager beer peaked in the formation of tannoid at
of PVP, the 1st extract exceeded the detection limit, the 2nd extract at
, while the third extract at
of PVP. The GTE were slow in reacting with PVP, and their formation patterns were different from those of polyphenols from barley and hop. 2) Ale fermentation; The final alcohol content was 9.25% (ABV). The addition of GTE increased the yeast viability after 2 days and finally reached 52.3% from 30.9%. Total polyphenol in GTE beer increased by 1.5 times (p < .05). However, its tannoid contents increased by 6.4 times. 3) Lager fermentation; The final alcohol content was 5.93% (ABV). The effect of GTE on lager beer was minimal for all variables. However, total polyphenol of GTE beer increased by 1.4 times (p < .05). Its tannoid increased by 3.3 times (p < .05).
Brand Relationship Quality of Brand Loyal Fashion Consumers and Their Loyalty Orientation
Moon, Hee-Kang ;
Journal of the Korean Home Economics Association , volume 46, issue 3, 2008, Pages 57~71
The purpose of this study is 1) to develop and validate the BRQ construct perceived by brand loyal consumers, 2) to evaluate the predictive capacity of the individual BRQ dimension and brand relationship benefit on consumers' relationship intention, and 3) to identify the distinctive loyalty orientation based on the concept of BRQ. Questionnaire data from 379 brand loyal consumers on BRQ, brand relationship benefit, relationship intention, and their brand loyal behavior pattern were analyzed. The results showed that brand loyal consumers' BRQ composed of 3 dimensions including 'compensational bind', 'self attachment', and 'trust'. In addition, the mediating role of BRQ in predicting consumers' loyal relationship intention was validated using the structural equation model. Regarding the effect of each BRQ dimension on loyal relationship intention, consumers' intention to be loyal to an apparel brand was more explained by self attachment than the other dimensions. This study also intended to provide a useful direction to apparel brands in finding out which relationship quality type is more effective for differentiated marketing strategies by comparing the BRQ of single-brand loyal consumers and that of multi-brand loyal consumers.

Chyung, Yun-Joo ;
Journal of the Korean Home Economics Association , volume 46, issue 3, 2008, Pages 73~85
The purpose of this study was to examine: (1) relationships among mothers' attachment experience in childhood, mothers' personality characteristics, and parenting stress and parenting behavior; (2) whether mothers' personality characteristics mediate the relationship between mothers' attachment experience in childhood and parenting stress; and (3) whether mothers' personality characteristics mediate the relationship between mothers' attachment experience in childhood and parenting behavior. The subjects were 177 mothers with preschool children, and the data were collected with questionnaires. It was found that there are correlations among mothers' attachment experience in childhood, mothers' personality characteristics, parenting stress, and parenting behaviors(autonomy encouragement, and rejection). It was found that mothers' attachment experience in childhood predicts mothers' parenting stress, but the relationship is mediated by mothers' personality characteristics. It was also found that mothers' attachment experience in childhood predicts mothers' parenting behavior, but the relationship is mediated by mothers' personality characteristics.

Choi, Jin-Ah ;
Journal of the Korean Home Economics Association , volume 46, issue 3, 2008, Pages 87~101
This research was based on a case study of a child who experienced difficulties in ego development due to her mother's compulsive and depressed behavior. Twenty-four therapeutic play sessions, including 16 sessions involving sandplay, were conducted. Based on discussions by Neumann and Kalff, the child's early psychic development and ego development were observed during these sandplay. As part af this investigation, I conducted counseling sessions in the sandbox where the atmosphere was free and safe. The sessions were based on mother-child unity with the therapist. As a result, the child exhibited restoration of mother-child unity and showed the journey of constellation of self and ego development. The results of this research indicate the effectiveness of sandplay in accelerating ego development.

With increasing of communication technology in cyber-space, the space of consumer complain behavior moved from off-line to on-line, so called anti-site. No researches, however, really have done how the anti-sites worked for promoting consumer rights through consumer complain behaviors in cyber space. The purpose of this research was to give some suggestions for activating anti-site for promoting consumer rights. For this purpose, questionnaire on-line survey was conducted from April, 12 to 24, 2004. And 143 samples, who were visiting anti-site during survey period, were selected. Main findings were as following: First, visitors had rather positive confidence with informations in anti-sites. Second, visitors thought that anti-sites were working rather well in implementing consumer movement by sharing their experiences, and by supporting complaining space in cyber. Visitors, however, thought that anti-sites were not working well as a space for companies, not by giving their attentions on consumers' complains. Third, the satisfaction level of visitors was found to be rather high in terms of informations in anti-sites, and to be rather low in terms of companies' attentions on anti-sites and management of anti-sites. Based on results, some suggestions of activating anti-site for promoting consumer rights were as following: First, visitors should not only get information, but support new and useful informations for others. And also it was suggested that visitors should join consumer movement through anti-site actively. Second, companies should pay attentions on anti-sites for their sake because anti-sites could give very useful information improving customer satisfaction, and finally reducing cost and increasing profit.
