Actually, those parking spaces are part of a push to make the city more female friendly. The spaces are also better lit and closer to elevators and escalators. Seoul is also having thousands of new women only toilets installed and are resurfacing walkways with a special material to help women who wear high heels be able to walk easier. I'm not sure why Seoul is doing this, but when I lived in Korea, women were treated like a second class citizen. So maybe they are trying to put an end to that kind of thinking, and by making these big women-centric changes, they are showing in a tangible way that they are serious about being more female-friendly. But that of course is just my speculation. Also, Seoul os a very crowded city and every thing is compacted to utilise the space better, including parking spaces. Women in Korea are typically the caregivers of children, so it makes sense that the parking spaces are larger to accommodate getting children in and out of car seats. I don't think it's based on alleged bad parking skills.
