26 Even as cultural ideals of the family (kajok) propagated by Confucian ideologues gained widespread acceptance, they did not necessarily translate into practice, especially when economic realities made that impossible. By the latter half of the ChosQn period, moreover, the contradictions between social status, wealth, and cultural ideals were becoming apparent. For instance, a wealthy peasant family (who did not have elite social standing) might celebrate an elaborate wedding according to Confucian norms, while a poor yangban family with limited economic resources could not provide a proper dowry for their daughter.

ChosQn law unequivocally gave masters sole ownership rights over the children of female slaves. Slaves, who occupied the lowest position in this rigid social hierarchy as ch’Qnmin, were divided into two categories: kongnobi (state-owned) and sanobi (privately owned). The latter were subdivided into solgQ nobi (service slaves) and oegQ nobi (outside resident slaves).
