South Korea

South Korea is often referred to as such. Yet you are not deceived, nothing is so calm in this country. It is in perpetual motion. You will find an ancestral lifestyle that cohabits serenely with a most unbridled modernism. Who amongst you has never heard of the Samsung Galaxy phones, the car manufacturer Kia and its 7-year manufacturer warranty, LG TVs, BB cream, the famous "Gangnam Style" dance and lately The K-pop? But who knows the Han style? Other aspects of its culture, are Hangeul (Korean alphabet), Hansik (Korean gastronomy), Hansori (traditional music), Hanji (traditional Korean paper), Hanbok (traditional Korean costume) And Hanok (traditional Korean house).
