Korean women are more likely thrive in their daily lives than Korean men, according to recent polls. Gallup released a report this week on life evaluations by women and men worldwide.
They classified their lives as "thriving," "struggling" or "suffering" according to their ratings on a scale from zero to 10.
Korean women have consistently rated their lives more positively than men, although both genders have become more positive about their lives. Gallup noted that Korean women's optimism may be due to their high employment rate despite earning on average a whopping 40 percent less than Korean men.
Women in Korea were the 13th most likely to be thriving in the world at 55 percent, leading their male counterparts by 11 percent.
Danish women were most optimistic overall, followed by Canadians and Australians. Women in Afghanistan were the least likely to be thriving at 2 percent.
