south korea has a long and complicated history that reaches very far back in time. even though many non-koreans, or non-asians, confuse the koreans for j-panese or chinese people, it is apparent that south koreans and its country has its own distinctive culture. korean girls, or women, are said to be attractive and pretty even though that is not true for every korean female. korea has a very beautiful language that many foreigners want to learn. it is famous for its fast development from a third world country to one of the powerful countries in the world. korea is known for its developed technology such as the internet, cellphones, mp3 players, and many more. however, korea currently suffers from an insecure and corrupted government. also, korea is pretty polluted since so many people are living on such a small piece of land. many koreans believe that the sea of j-pan is wrongly named by people who are ignorant of history. also, foreigners like to look at korea as a wanna-be j-pan country, when koreans aren’t envious of j-pan at all. koreans aren’t jealous of j-pan– they are mad at it and its people for the brutal acts they did to korea and its people back in time.

south korea: home of the zergling rush
a country located in southeast asia between j-pan and china. because of the recent economic rise from a third world country to the 10th largest economy in the world, it is often refered to as the eastern tiger. it has a history going back over 4000 years (this is clearly doc-mented and there is almost no dispute over it), and there are theories that the j-panese may have been civilized by the koreans.
its culture is both complex and rich, but many modern-day koreans are increasingly embracing technology and disgarding a lot of the original culture. however, core princ-p-ls such as deference to elders are still very apparent.
today, korean pop-culture is becoming increasingly influential in the southeast asian area; many korean celebrities, such as boa, can now fluently speak j-panese and chinese as well because of their popularity in those regions. the j-panese loooove k-pop and k-drama, and the korean movie industry is gaining more and more influence.
but modern day korean culture is still developing, and takes many inputs from foriegn countries. popular imports include j-panese manga and rap.
the food in korea is considered to be delicious by many foreigners. however, it is not for everyone as many dishes include garlic as a key ingredient. prominant dishes include bul-go-gi (marinated grilled beef), kim-chi (spiced pickled cabbage), and bi-bim-bap (rice mixed with various side dishes, such as the aforementioned bulgogi and kimchi)
korea is probably the most wired country in the world. its high population density and small land m-ss fosters high speed internet and cell phone techonology. gaming is becoming very popular and a key part in teenagers’ lives. korea is the only country in the world where pro-gaming can be a full time job.
like most other asian countries, the educational system in korea is highly intense and compet-tive. math and the sciences are stressed as being highly important. english is also considered as an important subject as well. by the end of middle school, or 8th grade, nearly all koreans have studied algebra ii, and many have learned trigonomotry as well. compet-tion to get into the top colleges such as seoul university is extreme, and many korean students go to america to escape from the compet-tion, and choose to study as exchange students and attend an american college. korean students often go to school until three, and then go to hak-won in the evening, or places where you are tutored further in certain subjects, ranging from math to piano to english, so that you can do better in schools. there is a standardized national test that a student needs to take before going to college, and tests for specific areas as well. the standardized test is about the level of the ap tests in america.
south korea is a promising country in todays world. in 50 years, it emerged from a third world country to the 10th largest economy in the world. however, there are many problems that it must face in the future, including government corruption, political relations with north korea, pollution, and economic stability. but if it overcomes these problems, south korea has the potential to become one of the greatest countries in the world.
i used to live in south korea and then went to mit… and found that my courses at mit were easier then the courses i took in korea. (in terms of the hours spent studying to get a good grade)
a country that…
1. makes some of the world’s most innovative and technologically advanced cell phones (samsung)!!

south korea is an east asian country west from j-pan. it was once part of a unified korea along with its northern neighbor, north korea. sk is one of the largest economies in the world with companies like samsung, lg, hyundai, etc. it’s capital is seoul.
idiots like dudeinwales, who made a definition where he compares south korea with north korea need to be shot. i read your lame–ss definitions of south korea and other stuff related to the country and to me you sound like a xenophobic -sshole.
south korea is not north korea
a country in asia.

korean parents are very into education.

good education would guarantee good jobs.
attending to university is a free p-ss to get away from joining the army.
many koreans study outside of the country like the us and canada to learn english.
also, many koreans hate j-pan from the annexation.
many think the j-panese government denies to apologize for what j-pan did during the annexation period, when the j-panese government has multiple times. (last one was aug,15,2010 )
there is also collisions between the two countries with dokdo/takeshima island.
(well, i guess its normal for neighboring countries to not get along. happens all over the world.)
all three of my korean friends: south korea is the best country and its going to rule the world in any time.

the sh-t one takes while at school, so one does not have to walk in awkwardly after a 10 minute bathroom break. usually includes grunts, splashes, and frantic pulling of the toilet paper off the roll. trying to take a speed-o-sh-t does not work well if the sh-tt-r has constipation; but if one can pull […]
