One out of 10 international marriages last year involved Korean men finding foreign wives in Jeonnam

전남도민 지난해 결혼 10명 중 1명은 외국인 배우자


Recent statistics shows that the number of marriages between locals and foreigners has steadily decreased in Jeonnam in recent years, although international marriage is still a big part of Jeonnam residents’ weddings.


According to the Mokpo based Honam Regional Statistics Office’s recent research, the marriage rate between locals in Jeonnam and foreigners has been decreasing steadily since 2010. Based on the research, in 2010, marriages between locals and foreigners made up more than 15.3% of all marriages in the region, amounting to approximately 1,058 weddings, however, last year the number sat at only 10.3%, or 778 weddings.


Furthermore, nationwide, the total number of international marriage brokers in South Korea is on the decline. The number fell from 449 in 2014 to 403 in 2015, when standards for issuing marriage visas were tightened, and then down to 362 in 2016. There was a slight uptick, to 366, in 2017.
