Matchmaking enjoying a revival in South Korea

AP , SEOUL

Being a business school graduate or lawyer earns special treatment by the agencies, but such people can also be asked to pay twice as much as ordinary clients.

At DUO, for example, "Nobles" class membership for a year costs about 1,590,000 won (US$1,600) for men and 2,150,000 won (US$2,100) for women.

Women pay more because having a successful husband is considered an important factor for one's social standing, just as having a good job is for men.
