Weddings in South Korea are traditionally large-scale family events that celebrate the combination of two families. However, the concept of a wedding in the country is changing. The new generation appears to be resistant to such customary weddings. In addition, the number of marriages is steadily decreasing due to a change in perception that marriage is not considered an obligation. The restrictions on guest numbers for weddings during the COVID-19 pandemic also caused an overall reduction in scale of wedding ceremonies.
When asked about their ideal spouse, South Korean men answered that they would like their future wife to be an everyday office woman who is about two years younger and 163 cm tall. The women said they would like their future husband to be 178.8 centimeters tall while working as an everyday office worker as well. However, both men and women prioritized personality and values over physical appearance or economic power when looking for a spouse in reality.
