This study analyzed the time use of dual income paid workers. The data was selected from the ‘2009 Korean Time Use Survey’ by the Korean National Statistical Office. There were 2799 respondents who were paid workers with dual income. There were big differences in time use between men and women. The result showed that men’s time allocation focused on ‘labor and leisure’ and women’s time allocation focused on ‘labor and housework’. This means the women among dual income paid workers faced difficulties in dual burden of work-family balance. Regression analysis on time use dividing men and women showed that age, education, income, woking type and the presence of preschool children had significant effects on time allocation. We found the income effects on time use which reduced paid working time and increased housework and leisure time. Significantly, younger men who have preschool chilidren spend more time in housework. We could find the possibility of a change in men’s time allocation.
