      Korean children spend the least time with their parents in the OECD countries.

      Korean children spend on average 48 minutes a day with their parents, a mere third of the OECD average of 151 minutes.

      The OECD released a report titled "How's Life? 2015" on Monday, which analyzes well-being and progress based on "factors ranging from quality of jobs to environment."

      Australia topped the list with 256 minutes, followed by Austria (253 minutes), Ireland (223 minutes), and the U.S. (211 minutes).

      Korean children spend a mere six minutes with their fathers, in sharp contrast to the OECD average of 47 minutes.
