South Korea’s history might not be as colourful as that of her neighbours, China and Japan, but nevertheless this mountainous, well-developed, high-tech country is interesting in its own way. Its economy is primarily built on the high-quality Korean products behind the brands of the some of the world’s largest corporations, such as Samsung, LG, Kia, Hyundai and Daewoo. The capital of the country is a true city of the future, a huge metropolis, where ancient temples and palaces coexist amongst futuristic skyscrapers, that are rarely seen in the western world. It is a place with comfort and civilisation, shopping and entertainment, food and nightlife, culture and tradition. Despite being a modern country, South Korea still remains a pretty conservative and nationalistic place. In addition to its indubitable economic success the country also suffers from a considerable number of social problems, some of which exist under the title of the “Four social evils of South Korea.”
