Abstract:

This paper examines South Korean farm bachelors’ motives to look for wives from Southeast Asian countries by probing an association between the declining agricultural industry and the perceived decline of Korean farmers’ masculinity, and argues how the gender hierarchy intersects with the global hierarchy in Korean men’s construction of masculinity. By using the concepts of “doing gender” (West and Zimmerman 1987) and the world gender order (Cornell 1998), this paper contends that Korean men, whose masculinity is perceived to be curtailed by local Korean women’s rejection for their low socio-economic status, attempt to restore masculinity through international marriage in which patriarchal idea and practice of “marriage gradient” are maintained, and their “doing masculinity” is understood in relation to their migrant wives especially within Korean men’s perceived nation-state standing in the global economy.
