'Only elegant women allowed': S Korea gym draws flak for sign

Still Waters

Recommended Posts

A gym in South Korea has banned misbehaving "aunties", reigniting a debate about discrimination against older women in the country.

The gym in Incheon city near the capital Seoul put up a sign that read "off limits to ajummas" and "only cultivated and elegant women allowed".

Ajumma is a catch-all term for older women - typically late-30s onwards - but is also a pejorative for behaviour that is seen as rude or obnoxious.

Local reports did not name the gym or its owner, who defended the move, claiming that his company had "suffered damages" because of these women and their unruly behaviour.
