Familial Expectations in Korea

I am writing an informative essay on South Korean Teens. For my final section, I am writing about familial expectations, such as when people are expected to settle down- get married, buy a house, have children- but I'm having a very difficult time finding articles online about it. If anyone knows about this subject, I would appreciate the help.

Ask a Korean person. Haha

Hopefully there is someone Korean here. If no Koreans reply after a day or 2, I will ask a friend.

If you speak/understand Korean, check out the Korean TV show abnormal summit. You may have to browse through a lot of episodes but you will get a LOT of information on what is expected of the Korean youth today.

You could probably use Korean dramas as a source as well since they reflect somewhat what society is going through. Not sure you will find any journal articles about these. Best sources are probably TV shows.
