Some 70 percent of university students have a positive view of male homemakers, according to a recent survey.
Job portal Incruit said Wednesday that of 439 university students polled, around 74 percent of males and 66 percent of females were open to the idea of stay-at-home husbands.
Sixty percent of male students are willing to become full-time homemakers themselves, saying gender is irrelevant to the role. Other factors included an interest in home management and parenting, followed by difficulties in job seeking or at the workplace.
The number of male homemakers in Korea has increased by 34.5 percent compared to five years ago, Statistics Korea reported in January.
