Journal of the Korean Home Economics Association , volume 48, issue 4, 2010, Pages 25~30
DOI : 10.6115/khea.2010.48.4.025
This study was motivated from the point that TV anchor women wore red clothing the most when they appeared at the broadcasting. For the analysis of clothing color, the main news programs of three local terrestial broadcasting systems were adopted, and the screen sources having been obtained for a year on the anchor women from January 2008 to December were classified by S/S, F/W. As the result, it was found out that the image was classified according to the inherent symbolic meaning of red color, and red color was frequently adopted for the happy-passionate image. It is judged that the reason is red color clothing spotlights passionate, challenging and imposing image which anchor women have. It revealed that while investigating the relationship of coloration between red upper clothing and other clothing, the inner-wear white color of the red jacket, or of the black inner-wear was matched the most, regardless of season. It is judged that this is because the coloration of red and white, and of red and black give not only brilliant but also clear image.

(3) When children`s self-regulation was controlled, mothers` child-rearing attitudes did not show any positive correlations with children`s prosocial behavior. In conclusion, children`s self-regulation mediated the association between mother`s child-rearing attitudes and prosocial behaviors.

With the sex role changes in the post-modern society, men are becoming increasingly interested in appearance and their bodies. Male muscles in particular, which also is a visual manifestation of masculine strengths, has become the focal interest for those men who care about appearance management. The purpose of this study was to identify the extent to which Korean culture emphasizes muscles in defining masculine body, and to understand Korean men`s perception of muscle building and their bodies. For this purpose, a content analysis and a survey were conducted. The content analysis aimed at identifying the ideal masculine image represented in the ads featured in male fashion magazines. For the purpose of comparison, U.S. magazines were also examined. The result showed that male models` images shown in Korean magazines were not significantly different from the male images in American magazines in terms of the body size, muscularity, and the nudity of the models. A survey to 339 men aged between 20 to 50 living in Seoul area was conducted to explore the motives of muscle building, the criteria men use to evaluate muscled bodies, and the influence of muscle building on body satisfaction. Factor analysis and analyses of variances followed by Scheffe multiple comparisons were conducted for data analysis. The results showed that physical appearance improvement is one of the motives of muscle building especially for younger men. Muscle building in general is found to contribute positively to men`s body satisfaction.

For a pattern to be a scientific and reasonable drafting method. it should be based on the human body, have fewer measuring items, be easy to learn, and be able to make good-looking clothing that fits many people. Therefore, the height, foot length and circle radius in the Durumagi drafted in this study examined to improved the drafting method for Korean Durumagi.

Yoon, Won-Ah ;
Journal of the Korean Home Economics Association , volume 48, issue 4, 2010, Pages 83~102
DOI : 10.6115/khea.2010.48.4.083
This paper investigates whether intra-household bargaining power affects couples` caregiving decisions during instances of competing parental demands for assistance. The primary focus is on examining how partners` bargaining power influences the relative allocation of time resources between parents and parents-in-law, assuming that children prefer to transfer caregiving resources toward their own parents over their parents-in-law. The findings in this study reject the bargaining theory that couple`s parental care behavior results from a bargaining process between the husband and the wife. More specifically, the results did not clearly show that children prefer to transfer caregiving resources toward their own parents over their parents-in-law. Decision-making power, measured by final decision-making authority, also failed to affect the relative care transfers.
