Jin Jeong,Hae Rhee Baeck
This study of 54 folk paintings of the late chosen period analyzed the perception of children of that period. Three types of children`s activities were identified: children playing, children working hard, and children studying hard. Only boys participated in these activities along with their parents or grandparents: girls were relegated to the background, along the fence.
were that people recognized play as a natural part of childhood. children`s lives were defined by social status: children of the yangban (upper) class had to study hard for their family`s honor while children of the lower classes had to labor for their family`s livelihood. Children were recognized as members of a family and a community. Boys were considered important because they were heirs to the family fortune: girls were to be supportive of men and family.
