Kweon, Soo-Ae ; Sohn, Boo-Hyun ;
Journal of the Korean Home Economics Association , volume 49, issue 5, 2011, Pages 1~10
DOI : 10.6115/khea.2011.49.5.001
To provide the basic data to manufacture superior brassiere, this study was analyzed the evaluation of wear sensation of brassiere and the satisfaction of breast type by breast circumference and volume of 182 twenties-aged women. The results were as follows: First, it was reliable to set up the cup size of brassiere by using the breast circumference. Hemispherical breast was the same as cone-shaped breast in breast classification by breast circumference and volume. Second, the breast sizes were able to classify into under 200cc, 200~300cc, 300~400cc, and over 400cc by volume, but measuring the volume was more difficult than measuring the breast circumference. Last, there were correlations between breast circumference and breast volume by breast type. And there were differences on improvement, brassiere size, and the satisfaction of breast type by breast circumference and volume. This results will give basic informations for brassiere design that reflects breast type according to breast circumference and volume for functional brassiere.

Journal of the Korean Home Economics Association , volume 49, issue 5, 2011, Pages 11~22
DOI : 10.6115/khea.2011.49.5.011
This study aimed to suggest more appropriate and accurate festival costumes based on a comparative analysis on various reproduced costumes and a period review of traditional festival costumes. In particular, the comparative analysis examined festival costumes which appeared in Korean and Japanese festival parades during the Baekje Period. The Baekje Cultural and Sacheonwangsawasso Festivals were examined. A literature review as well as field research and digital restorative techniques were used in the study. The reproduction patterns of Baekje costumes from both festivals were compared with original Baekje costumes, demonstrating several differences in the configuration, material, color, and shape of the costumes in addition to the way they were worn. Based on the comparative analysis, Baekje costumes used in Festivals were grouped into three categories: King`s Costume, Queen`s Costume, and Government Official`s Costume. Dress sketches and 3D illustrations also have been presented.
The Study of Face Concealing Culture of Istanbul Women
Park, Bo-Young ;
Journal of the Korean Home Economics Association , volume 49, issue 5, 2011, Pages 23~32
DOI : 10.6115/khea.2011.49.5.023
This study will covered socio-cultural background and characteristic of the face-concealing culture of Istanbul which has liberal and westernized clothes culture for women even if it`s an city in an Islamic country. This study depended on literatures related to religion, culture and costumes of the Ottoman Empire, especially costumic data on miniature of turkey, which was famous from 16th to 19th century. Since the 17th century, the Ottoman Empire has been gradually influenced by European countries but the change of women`s clothes was not considerable. In the 18th century, women`s clothes were influenced by foreign fashions. A veil to cover the face was gradually disappeared and traditional Turkish headdresses were replaced by European hats. Through face-concealing culture of Istanbul, we can see some socio-cultural features like Islamic religious character, one`s social position, economic situation, westernization and renovation, beauty and completion of costume, duality for the reason of regional difference.

Chung, Grace H. ; Lim, Ji-Young ;
Journal of the Korean Home Economics Association , volume 49, issue 5, 2011, Pages 33~48
DOI : 10.6115/khea.2011.49.5.033
The purpose of this study was to explore factors related to marital satisfaction among immigrant wives compared to Korean wives of Korean men. Participants included 409 immigrant wives married to Korean men and 474 Korean wives married to Korean men, both currently living in Korea. Hierarchical regression analyses revealed that there were different sets of variables that predicted marital satisfaction for each group. Egalitarian decision-making was a significant predictor of marital satisfaction for immigrant wives only, whereas for Korean wives, it was the level of their depressive symptoms that was significantly but negatively associated with marital satisfaction. A wife`s positive perception of her husband`s communication style emerged as the strongest predictor of marital satisfaction for both Korean and immigrant wives. In addition, indicators of the cultural context of immigrant women (i.e., longer stay in Korea and greater frequency of experiencing discrimination in the past year due to their foreign appearance or status) emerged as significant predictors of immigrant wives` marital satisfaction even after taking demographic factors, depressive symptoms, and couple-level factors into account. The findings of this study contribute to existing research by (1) comparing the models of marital satisfaction for Korean wives and immigrant wives, identifying unique predictors for each group, and (2) examining the effect of cultural adaptation on the martial satisfaction of immigrant wives.

Kim, Gi-Hyun ;
Journal of the Korean Home Economics Association , volume 49, issue 5, 2011, Pages 49~57
DOI : 10.6115/khea.2011.49.5.049
This study explored the effects of parenting efficacy and parental role satisfaction on the life-satisfaction of employed and unemployed mothers. The 527 mothers(234 employed, and 277 unemployed), with a child under 7 years old, were selected for this study. The results were as follows. First, employment had significant correlations with several factors, including the number of children, family income, educational level of parents, parent-child relations, preparedness for parental role conflict, and life-satisfaction. Second, for employed mothers, life-satisfaction had positive relationships with various factors, including family income, fathers` educational level, parenting efficacy, and parental role satisfaction; whereas, that of unemployed mothers had positive relationships with parenting efficacy, and parental role satisfaction. Third, for employed mothers, life-satisfaction was affected by several factors, such as family income, parental role satisfaction, parent-child relations, and preparedness for parental role conflict; however, unemployed mothers were affected by the number of children, the fathers` educational level, and self-confidence relating to the parental role, general satisfaction, and preparedness for parental role conflict.

Kim, Mi-Jeong ; Kim, Yeong-Hee ;
Journal of the Korean Home Economics Association , volume 49, issue 5, 2011, Pages 59~70
DOI : 10.6115/khea.2011.49.5.059
The purpose of this study was to examine the effects of family economic distress, paternal depression, marital relationship, and controlling parenting style on behavioral problems in young children and to present a program for their reduction. The participants of this study were 344 fathers, whose young children were attending kindergartens located in Cheongju city. Data were analyzed using descriptive statistics, frequency, factor analysis, reliability analysis, and Pearson`s productive correlation, t and F-tests via the SPSS 12.0 program, with the path model analyzed using the AMOS 7.0 program. There were six paths where family economic distress, mediated by paternal depression, marital relationship, controlling parenting style, had effects on the behavioral problems in young children. However, the path where family economic distress had an indirect effect on the behavioral problems in young children via paternal depression and marital relationship appeared to be the most influential. Also, paternal depression appeared to have the most impact on young children`s behavioral problems.

Lee, Seo-Won ; Han, Ji-Sook ;
Journal of the Korean Home Economics Association , volume 49, issue 5, 2011, Pages 71~80
DOI : 10.6115/khea.2011.49.5.071
The purpose of this study was to investigate the mediating effects of anger expression on the relationship between child abuse experience and the method of resolving interpersonal conflicts. For the study, 3,050 4th to 6th grade children from Kyunggi-do were sampled. The collected data were analyzed using simple regression, multi regression and a path analysis. This study showed that child abuse experience influenced the method of resolving the interpersonal conflicts via the expression of anger. In other words, anger expression could function as a pathway between child abuse experience and the method of resolving interpersonal conflicts.
Analysis of Time Use of Double Income Paid Workers
Lee, Seung-Mie ; Lee, Hyun-Ah ;
Journal of the Korean Home Economics Association , volume 49, issue 5, 2011, Pages 81~96
DOI : 10.6115/khea.2011.49.5.081
This study analyzed the time use of dual income paid workers. The data was selected from the `2009 Korean Time Use Survey` by the Korean National Statistical Office. There were 2799 respondents who were paid workers with dual income. There were big differences in time use between men and women. The result showed that men`s time allocation focused on `labor and leisure` and women`s time allocation focused on ‘labor and housework`. This means the women among dual income paid workers faced difficulties in dual burden of work-family balance. Regression analysis on time use dividing men and women showed that age, education, income, working type and the presence of preschool children had significant effects on time allocation. We found the income effects on time use which reduced paid working time and increased housework and leisure time. Significantly, younger men who have preschool children spend more time in housework. We could find the possibility of a change in men`s time allocation.
A Study on the Relationships between Self-Differentiation and Adaptability Factors for Senior Dementia Patients` Care Givers
Hyeong, Seong-Hun ;
Journal of the Korean Home Economics Association , volume 49, issue 5, 2011, Pages 97~115
DOI : 10.6115/khea.2011.49.5.097
The focus of this study was on the self-differentiation level of families with an elderly member suffering from dementia. Based on 340 questionnaires collected in Seoul and Gyeonggi, the study intended to explain the adaptation issues of those families. The variables of interest, which might be related to the self-differentiation, were chronic anxiety(i.e. stress), the family function, psychosomatic symptoms and the family`s adaptation to care-giving. As a result of analyzing the effects of the variables potentially related to the self-differentiation level of care-giving families, the findings from this study were as follow. With decreasing self-differentiation level of the family caring for an elderly member suffering from dementia, the levels of stress and psychosomatic symptoms were significantly increased, but the family function and the adaptation to care-giving tended to decrease. Conversely, with increasing self-differentiation, the levels of stress and psychosomatic symptoms were significantly decreased, while the family function and adaptation to care-giving were promoted.

Song, Min-Jung ; Han, Sae-Young ;
Journal of the Korean Home Economics Association , volume 49, issue 5, 2011, Pages 117~127
DOI : 10.6115/khea.2011.49.5.117
The purpose of this study was to investigate the effects of mother`s neuroticism and parenting stress, and young children`s stress on internal and external problem behaviors. The participants of this study consisted of 236 mothers, who had children aged 5-7 in Chungbuk area. Mothers responded to questionnaires and data analyzed using SPSS program(version 12.0) and AMOS program(version 5.0). The results of this study were as follows.: First, a mother`s neuroticism, parenting stress, and young children`s stress directly influenced on young children`s internalizing problem behaviors. The effect of mother`s neuroticism on young children`s internalizing problem behaviors was mediated by mother`s parenting stress and young children`s stress. Second, mother`s parenting stress influenced young children`s externalizing problem behaviors directly, but mother`s neuroticism and young children`s stress did not. The effect of mother`s neuroticism on young children`s externalizing problem behaviors was mediated by parenting stress.

Lee, Seon-Mi ;
Journal of the Korean Home Economics Association , volume 49, issue 5, 2011, Pages 129~142
DOI : 10.6115/khea.2011.49.5.129
The purpose of this study was to analyze the effective variables which influence family strengths. In particular, influencing variables were analyzed according to sex, generation, and family pattern. There were 703 participants aged over 20 years in Gwangju and Seoul. All participants completed a questionnaire and the data were analyzed using SPSS. The results were as follows: 1. The average scores of family strengths were higher than the median. Regarding subdimensions, `value system sharing` had the lowest score. 2. Family strengths were related to its subdimension and some variables. 3. Family strengths were influenced by living condition, self-esteem, depression, the cognition of family function, and family value orientations. However, the influencing variables were different according to sex, generation, and family patterns. In conclusion, in order to improve family strengths, it is necessary to develop `value system sharing`, enhance self-esteem, and reduce depression. Further, when we deal with family strengths, it is necessary to vary methodology.
