More and more fathers in South Korea are taking advantage of paternity leave to help raise their children. Deeply ingrained social stereotypes still see South Korean women taking on the majority of housework and childcare, despite having full time jobs. Government incentives are trying to change that. For example, mothers and fathers each are allowed up to one year of paternity leave, which can be used any time until the child is nine years old. Last year just 3400 dads took advantage of the paternity leave.
