Through this, basic data for vitalization of the beauty industry can be obtained. Method: A total of 225 questionnaires were collected online for men and women over the age of 20 who had experience using beauty salons nationwide.

Exploratory factor analysis was performed to verify the validity of the measurement tool used in this study. In addition, in order to verify the mediating effect, it was analyzed using Process Macro No. 6 model. Results: The results of the analysis conducted are as follows. First, self-esteem did not show a significant correlation with Appearance Management Behaviors(p>.05), and showed a statistically significant positive correlation with Appearance Satisfaction(r=.563, p<.001). Self-esteem showed a statistically significant positive(+) correlation with Body Image Recognition(r=.214, p<.01), and Appearance Satisfaction showed a statistically significant positive(+) relationship with Appearance Management Behaviors. negative correlation(r=.180, p<.01). Body Image Recognition showed a statistically significant positive(+) correlation with Appearance Management Behaviors(r=.381, p<.001). Second, as a result of the mediating effect verification, the self-esteem of Appearance Management Behaviors The total and direct effects were not statistically significant. Mediating effect Looking at the significance results for each pathway, it was determined that the mediating effect of Appearance Satisfaction was statistically significant in the relationship between Appearance Management Behaviors and Self-esteem. In the relationship between Appearance Management Behaviors and Self-esteem, the mediating effect of Body Image Recognition was judged to be statistically significant. Each showed a complete mediating effect. However, in the relationship between Appearance Management Behaviors and Self-esteem, the sequential mediating effects of Appearance Satisfaction and Body Image Recognition were judged not to be statistically significant. Conclusion: It was found that Appearance Management Behaviors do not directly affect self-esteem, but affect self-esteem by increasing Appearance Satisfaction and Body Image Recognition.

Method: The subjects of this study were analyzed by using the SPSS 25.0, AMOS 22.0 program for 406 online questionnaires in Seoul, Gyeonggi, Incheon metropolitan area and non-metropolitan area to verify the research problem targeting Generation MZ who used short-form beauty contents at least once. The exploratory factor analysis and reliability analysis were performed to secure the validity and reliability of the scale, and the Pearson correlation analysis was performed to confirm the correlation between the major variables. To verify the regulatory effect, the hierarchical regulation regression analysis was performed, and the test was confirmed with a simple slope graph according to the significant interaction effect. Results: As a result of the analysis performed, significant results were confirmed with a focus on the three stag-es in which all variables were input together. In the first stage, the characteristics of short-form beauty contents of the independent variables were static, all in playfulness, information, reliability, creativity, and interactivity. As the influence of individual personality on the behavioral intention in the second stage, it was confirmed that extroversion, affinity, and neurosis were significant. It was verified that the interaction variables that can confirm the regulatory effect in the third stage were the interaction between playfulness and sincerity(=.114, p<.05), the interaction between playfulness and neurosis(=.091, p<.05), reliability and the interaction of affinity(=.096, p<.05) was positively significant, and the interaction of information and affinity was negatively significant(=-.156, p<.01). Conclusion: Based on the results of this study, it was possible to learn that, playfulness and reliability reinforce the behavioral intention in the characteristics of short-form beauty contents. Behavioral intention increases as individual personality integrity, neurosis, and evolution are regulated, whereas informationality deteriorates as the evolutionary nature increases, and it was also found that a strategy of creating and planning useful information that may be enjoyed or shared is necessary to provide an optimal experience of content, considering the characteristics and individual personalities of Generation MZ users, and accordingly, offers a meaning for the basic data for digital marketing.

  • Purpose: The purpose of this study was to explore the selective attributes of North Korean Tteok, examine and articulate the causal relationship between selective attributes, satisfaction and repurchase intention, and suggest practical implications for management. Method: In order to achieve the purpose of the study, the data were collected using Saeteomin, who have their experiences in purchasing Tteok as a sample group. A nationwide survey of 400 Saeteomins was conducted from January 2022 for about 4 weeks. As a result, 370 copies(effective rate of 92.5%) were used for the empirical analysis. Frequency analysis, reliability analysis, factor analysis, and simple(multiple) regression analysis were per-formed for the analytical methods of the collected data. Results: The research results and implications through the empirical analysis are presented as follows. First, as North Korean Tteok's selective attributes, the 4 factors of price, taste, nostalgia, and diversity were derived. Second, among the selective attributes factors, diversity, taste, and nostalgia turned out to have a positive effect on satis-faction. Through which, in order to increase satisfaction after purchasing North Korean Tteok, it is necessary to stimulate the nostalgia of North Korean Tteok for the consumers, develop various types, and manufacture Tteok that improves health and taste. Third, among the selective attributes factors, diversity and taste turned out to have an effect on repurchase intention in a positive direction. Through which, in order to induce the consumers to repurchase North Korean Tteok, it is necessary to promote and manufacture various North Korean Tteoks and make products that emphasize health and unique taste of North Korean Tteok. Fourth, satisfaction turned out to affect repurchase intention in a positive direction. That is, in order to increase the repurchase rate, North Korean Tteok must have manufactured the products that increase satisfaction with nostalgia, variety, and taste. Conclusion: This study sought to examine and articulate the North Korean Tteok's selective attributes of Saeteomin, but an in-depth North Korean Tteok investigation was insufficient given the lack of data and information on North Korean Tteok, and studies on such are insufficient. Hence, it can be said that future research is necessary to study the ways to enable the Korean people to consume and purchase North Korean Tteok with interest.
