From January 14, 2018 to February 12, 2018, participants were selected by convenience sampling. A total of 30 Korean adults aged ≥ 20 years participated, including 10 university students from one university, 10 university students, faculty members, and faculty assistants from another university, and 10 participants from a church congregation. We first explained the purpose and method of this study to the directors of the institutions. We then explained the requirements for videotaping indoor activity data during daily life to the participants. Participants who voluntarily agreed to take part in this study were enrolled and their consent was obtained for videotaping their activities. The participants understood and agreed that the researchers would measure their behaviors from the recorded tapes, which would be kept confidential to protect their privacy. To reduce the possibility of consciously limiting HFC behavior by the participants during the videotaping, we did not precisely inform them about the specific HFC behaviors being observed for the purposes of the study. After recording their behaviors by videotaping, participants were then advised of the precise aspects of HFC shown on their behavior recordings. They subsequently consented to our measurement of HFC after the video recordings. The videotaping locations were chosen to facilitate indoor activities in a daily living environment, such as a lecture room for university students, workplace offices for faculty members and faculty assistants, and a church chapel for church congregation members. Participants’ behaviors were recorded via videotape for 2 hours each (60 person-hours) and were measured during the most active time on a day that was convenient to participants. Participants performed their daily routine tasks involving indoor activities (such as lectures, discussions, reading, writing, computer work, worshipping, or Bible study) as usual during the videotaping.
