Study finds nearly 1 in 3 Koreans choose to skip breakfast Updated: 2017-02-17 14:52:36 KST

New data suggests that more Koreans are choosing to skip breakfast.
A study by the Korean Centers for Disease Control and Prevention conducted in 2015 and released today found that 29-and-a-half percent of Korean men forgo their morning meal as do 26 percent of women.
Both figures represent a rise from ten years earlier of about 9 percent and 4 percent, respectively.
Skipping breakfast is most common among Koreans in their twenties, roughly half of whom choose to do without it.
The government, however, has set the goal of getting the overal figure to below 18.3 percent by 2020.
