24 hours in a day--how do Koreans spend them?

There are 1,440 minutes in a day.  With the hours of daylight getting longer, more and more people find themselves trying to stay (or get) outdoors more frequently to enjoy the changes in temperatures, weather, and season.

But while we know how we like to spend our time between work and non-work activities, how do our Korean counterparts spend theirs?  This interesting article from the Chosun Ilbo illustrates just that.  According to the article, "the average Korean works eight hours a day, has five hours of leisure time, and spends the remaining 11 hours on basic life tasks."  How does that compare to your own life?  You can read more of the specifics of time  usage, including the huge difference in the amount of time men spend on housework in comparison to women here.
