The income gap between male and female workers in Korea is the widest in the developed world.
This according to a new report by Korea's National Assembly Research Service.
OECD statistics on full-time employee wages in 2010 shows a gender income gap of 39 percent in Korea.
Japan, number two on the list, was way below at 29 percent.
Hungary had the smallest income gap at less than 4 percent.
The report advises the government to take legislative action to narrow the income gap by offering more support to women who want to return to their careers after starting a family.
