South Korean government officials and experts met today to work on new measures suited to people who live alone the so-called one-person households.
Officials from 15 ministries and three policy think tanks took part in the discussion as part of a new task force.
Of all Korea's households, 29 percent of them are made up of just one person, and it's projected there'll be 100-thousand more such households every year.
The task force is looking to strengthen the social safety net for them and improve their job prospects and will announce the new policies in May.
