      Korean women seem to be most suspicious of their husbands, according to big data analysis by market researcher Daumsoft.

      The firm analyzed 530 million words that appeared on blogs and community websites and found that the word "husband" appeared most often along with the words "suspicion" and "can't trust."

      Out of 1,924 words associated most commonly with mistrust, 314 or 16.3 percent related to "husband," followed by "friend" (192), "employee" (71), "mother" (66), "child" (59) and "doctor" (40).

      Next were "son" (32), "father" (29) and "boyfriend" (23).

      This trend was repeated in searches of the word "lie." The words that were most commonly associated with "lie" were "friend" (3,013), "mother" (754), "husband" (615) and "boyfriend" (547). "Father" also ranked eighth (376).

      The frequent appearance of "friend" and "mother" highlights that young Koreans are the most avid posters of comments on the Internet.

      Daumsoft analyzed Daum and Naver blogs and comments on popular websites from January of 2013 until May of this year.

      "Women tend to be more active than men on the Internet and this could have had an impact on the results of the analysis," said Kwon Mi-kyung at Daumsoft.
