Traditionally, men are perceived as the initiators of dating activities, with women as submissive followers. In this view, paying for a date is the responsibility of the man.
This study examined how much money Korean heterosexual college men have paid for dates during the past decade.
Many women have become initiators of the dating process as society has become more egalitarian, but many studies have reported that men still pay for the first few dates.
Men have paid about 72% of all the expenses for a date in 1999 but the ratio dropped to about 63% in 2014.
