Who is an ajumma?

There is no exact definition for an ajumma but there are several general characteristics that help to define an ajumma.

1.Age range (mid-30s to late-60s)
2.Married
3.Appearance
4.Behaviour
5.Women (must be)

These  characteristics will help you to recognise ajummas however ajummas must be considered in the context of Korean culture and society to be fully understood.

I will explain more about ‘ajummarous elements’ in my next post.
