North Korean Students in the South Dish about Gender Differences
August 21, 2008 11:13 am

The Southern man, Northern woman trope gets a reworking in a discussion with a small group of former North Korean refugees, now university students aged 21-33, on their perceptions of differences in attitudes and behaviors between men and women in the North and the South.

While living in China, the men became accustomed to seeing scantily-clad women, but since their resettlement in the South, they feel awkward and find it difficult to accept the assertiveness and independence of women here. Below are few direct quotes from the students:

North Korean women are circumspect while South Korean women tell everything and act like men and North Korean women care about men, but South Korean women dont were some of the responses.
?? ???? ??? ? ???, ??? ?? ???? ?? ???? ? ?? ??? ???? ??, ?? ??? ??? ?? ??? ??? ?? ??? ??? ??? ?? ??? ???.

According to the North Korean women, Southern male students are attentive.
?? ????? ??? ????? ????? ??? ???.

According to one female student, North Korean male students dampen the spirits of women, following the precept Men are exalted and women are abased.
? ???? ??? ????? ??? ???? ???? ??? ??

One male in his twenties reported about North Korean wives, Before coming to the South, they accommodated the family and followed their husbands. Here they are free and do not endure any more. When North Korean women go back home, their husbands browbeat them while South Koreans show concern.
? 20? ?? ???? (???) ??? ?? ??? ??? ???? ??? ? ???? ??? ?? ??? ??, ?? ? ??? ? ?? ??? ??? ???? ?? ??? ?? ???? ??? ????? ???, ?? ???? ??? ??? ??.

Northern man bad, Northern woman good. Southern woman bad, Southern man good. No surprise to see the name of a male reporter, Im Ju-young, in the Yonhap byline.
