Hankyoreh on the projected disparity in the gender ratio in the South Korean population:
The number of females per 100 males aged 25-34 was 95 in 2000, but the figure will draw toward a downward curve, with 94 in 2010, 91 in 2015 and 88 in 2020, according to the NSO data. This ratio will hit its nadir in 2020 and start to grow, but still will not climb above 90 until 2030. It is highly possible that a problem of so-called “single wild goose males” will be a serious social problem for some time.
Obviously there is a very clear solution to this problem that is already being practised on a large scale throughout rural Korea - import women from poorer countries. However, I have some more radical solutions which may be of use if things get really bad:
1. Full acceptance of homosexuality as a legitimate and natural life choice in Korean society, thus alleviating the need for many men to find girlfriends and marry when they don’t really want to.
2. More sex changes. Obviously this could be self-defeating if there were as many or more women who wanted to change into biological men as there were men wanting to become women.
3. Clone women. So South Korea is a world leader in the field of cloning and er… alright that’s a crap idea.
