DOI : 10.6115/khea.2011.49.4.001
This study aims to examine the costumes, which a shaman wears for the ritual of exorcism in the Honam region. The findings are based on a field survey of the exorcism ritual, which is performed by hereditary shamans and forms part of an annual event in the Honam region. Two main features of the shamans' costumes were observed. Firstly, the types of shamanic costume worn for gut reflected the general traditional costume but with some variations. White-colored costumes are largely found in the Honam region. Secondly, the types of costumes, which shamans wear in the Honam region. are also varied. The different types of shamanic costumes, regardless of Ga-sa, can be classified into Jang-sam, Jeon-bok, or Duru-magi, variations in the patterns of costumes, differences in the types of conical hat, and modifications in the dress code.

Jang, Hye-Ju ; Lim, Ji-Young ;
Journal of the Korean Home Economics Association , volume 49, issue 4, 2011, Pages 11~23
DOI : 10.6115/khea.2011.49.4.011
The purpose of this study was to identify children's different styles of anger-expression and the characteristics of each anger-expression style. The Q-methodology with a 32 Q-sample was used to investigate and analyze the subjective expression of childrens's anger experiences. The subjects were 22 children living in D city, and the data were collected by means of interviews. The analysis revealed six styles of anger-expression, a solution which accounted for 65.13% of the total variance. The six styles were labeled "Patience type", "Avoidance-conversion type", "Reaction-seek type", "Control type", "Repression type", and "Conversion-consideration type". It was recommended that intervention strategies for children's appropriate anger-expression mode should be based on these six anger-expression styles.

Park, Hyun-Hee ;
Journal of the Korean Home Economics Association , volume 49, issue 4, 2011, Pages 25~35
DOI : 10.6115/khea.2011.49.4.025
This study was intended to suggest overseas expansion strategy of Korean fashion character through sensitive space creation. This study reviewed literature, and did internet searching and observation. For the research methods were the analysis of the main retail spaces utilizing character and case study for the classification of collaboration types between retail space and character. As a results, 8 collaboration types between space and character were extracted: collaboration between retail distribution space and character, collaboration between product space and character, collaboration between service space and character, collaboration between experience space and character, collaboration between moving space and character, collaboration between publicity & advertising space and character, and collaboration between exhibition space and character. This study suggested the necessity of consistent identity strategy between character and retail space for a new character brand and the effectiveness of collaboration strategy for enhancement of character brand awareness.
Moderating Effects of Parental Attachment and Teacher's Concerns in the Relationships between Children's Roles and School Adjustment among Children's of Alcoholics
Kim, Hae-Ryun ; Park, Soo-Kyung ;
Journal of the Korean Home Economics Association , volume 49, issue 4, 2011, Pages 37~50
DOI : 10.6115/khea.2011.49.4.037
The purpose of this study is to examine the relationships between children's roles, parental attachment, teacher's concerns and school adjustment among Children's Alcoholics(COAs). Participants were 2,803 middle and high school students in Seoul. The regression analysis results showed that hero role was positively associated with school bonding and academic performance but increased the level of anxiety/depression. Meanwhile, scapegoat and lost children's roles were negatively associated with school bonding and also increased the level of anxiety/depression. Mascot role were positively associated with school bonding and academic performance but had no relation with anxiety/depression. Regarding moderating effects, maternal attachment moderated the relationship between scapegoat role and school bonding while teacher's concerns moderated the relationship between hero role and anxiety/depression, and the relationship between scapegoat role and anxiety/depression. These findings suggested that practitioners need to consider the contributions of children's roles on school adjustment and moderating effects of maternal attachment or teacher's concerns when intervention programs are developed to improve school adjustment among COAs.
A Basic Study on Public Nanny Service Characteristics and Improvement Strategies
Lee, Seung-Mie ; Kim, Seon-Mi ;
Journal of the Korean Home Economics Association , volume 49, issue 4, 2011, Pages 51~65
DOI : 10.6115/khea.2011.49.4.051
In order to find out better policy strategies for public nanny service, this study tried to find out the characteristics and the major problems of this service based on 24 in-depth interviews and 7 focus group interviews with nannies, beneficiaries, managers, and public agents. Research findings showed that public nanny service was effectively filling the gap between nursery care services and parent's care services(especially who are both working). Also, this service provided tailored support to parents who have urgent or unexpected problems which prohibit them from properly caring their children. Especially this service effectively worked for temporary needs of caring young children. This study proposes these two strategies as follows: First, the beneficiary selection criteria should be updated. Second, the level and types of available time should be raised to fit the diverse needs of parents.

Ok, Sun-Wha ; Chin, Mee-Jung ;
Journal of the Korean Home Economics Association , volume 49, issue 4, 2011, Pages 67~76
DOI : 10.6115/khea.2011.49.4.067
This study had two goals: 1) to explore generational differences in traditional family rituals and 2) to investigate the association between family values and family rituals. Using survey data from 500 married men and women in their 20s to 60s, we classified three generations: 1) 1941-1950 birth cohort (aged 59-68), 2) 1951-1970 birth cohort (aged 39-58), and 3) 1971 and later cohort (aged 38 or less). These generations represented post-colonialism, modernization, and the information era in Korea, respectively. The results demonstrated that birth-related traditional family rituals had been maintained across the generations. Ancestor worship was less likely to be observed by later generations. Further, the way in which family values was associated with family rituals differed across the generations, indicating that traditional family values had different influences on everyday family life culture across generations.

Hong, Sung-Hee ; Kwak, In-Suk ;
Journal of the Korean Home Economics Association , volume 49, issue 4, 2011, Pages 77~91
DOI : 10.6115/khea.2011.49.4.077
The purpose of this study was to find out the variables affecting the successful aging of the elderly. To achieve this purpose, a survey was conducted with 388 seniors living in the Jeonbuk area. The data were analyzed using multiple regressions and a path analysis. The major findings were as follows: First, statistically significantly different perception of successful aging was observed according to their marital status. Second, successful aging of the elderly with a spouse was influenced by personal variables, such as their own perception of economic status, gender, education level and physical condition. In contrast, successful aging of the elderly without a spouse was most influenced by social variables, such as family support. Third, the attitude towards aging directly affected successful aging. Various personal and social characteristics indirectly affected successful aging via attitudes towards aging according to the presence of a spouse.
Symbolism of Circle, Square and Triangle Inherent in the Prototype Drafting Method for Traditional Hanbok
Jung, Ok-Im ;
Journal of the Korean Home Economics Association , volume 49, issue 4, 2011, Pages 93~104
DOI : 10.6115/khea.2011.49.4.093
The basic framework of traditional Korean clothing construction consists of circle, square and triangle. This composition principle has been presumed to be associated with the Cheonbu concept of the Dangun era wherein nature and human being are considered united. The Cheonbu concept is represented by circle, square and triangle which constitute Cheonbuin, the images and meanings of heaven. It contains profound philosophy wherein a circle symbolizes heaven and represents number one, a square symbolizes earth and represents the number two, and a triangle symbolizes human beings and represents the number three. Circles, squares and triangles have been used as various symbolic meanings both in the east and west and constitute the framework of Hanbok construction while connoting the Cheonbu concept and symbolism of the Cosmo-tree. From this point of view, the unity of human beings and heaven in Cheonbugyeong is symbolically inherent in Hanbok. Therefore, Hanbok with the basic framework of circles, squares and triangles can be considered a positive creation that created a composition principle of body-nature-clothing.
Development of the Men's Scuba Diving Suit Pattern by Using 3D Body-Scanned Data
Choi, Jin-Hee ;
Journal of the Korean Home Economics Association , volume 49, issue 4, 2011, Pages 105~113
DOI : 10.6115/khea.2011.49.4.105
The purpose of this study was to develop the pattern of scuba diving suits for local men in their thirties by using 3D body-scanned data. It is widely acknowledged that draping method is more suitable than flat pattern for body shape as most scuba diving suits in the market are designed to fit the body tightly in a single piece with sleeves and legs. A dummy for this study was made based on men's standard clothing sizes in 30's which was derived from data of 2004 Size Korea. Accordingly, the basic body block was built upon through draping method. Next, a scuba diving suit was made from neoprene, followed by fit and the clothing pressure tests in order to evaluate the diving suit's functionality and comfort. The results of the fit test had high points of 4.33 in majority parts except armhole and crotch ones. In comparison of clothing pressure between wearer and dummy, the clothing pressure of wearer was indicated relatively low in most parts other than armhole and knee, resulting from cushion function of skin and muscle and high stretch of fabric.
