• The South Korean Love Industry

    With one of the lowest birth rates in the world, South Korea is in danger of disappearing by the end of the millennium. If the situation stays as it is, South Koreans are predicted to become extinct by 2750. Because of the rapidly aging population, elderly prostitutes known as "Bacchus ladies" have cornered a number of public parks as their working areas. Meanwhile, South Korean kids are living with their families well into their 20s—as a result, an entire economy of sex motels has sprung up to give kids a place to fool around outside the watchful eyes of their parents. We sent Matt Shea to investigate this generational crisis, which led him to Seoul's red-light district, a pre-wedding photo shoot on the set of a Korean soap opera, and an erotic sculpture park on South Korea's "honeymoon ...

    Alright, so this is a tough topic, and I'd like to reiterate what we said at the beginning of our video: not all Korean Dramas are produced this way. I'm sure there are some that are closer to treating their cast and crew more ethically. From the research we've done, though, and from the people we've spoken with who are working in the industry, there are some seriously messed up things happening. Here's some of them.

In South Korea, v-shaped jaws, double eyelids and dimpled smiles are all the rage and people from across the nation, and the world, are flocking to the clinics for plastic surgery, supporting an industry worth $5bn a year. More than 4,000 clinics provide cosmetic surgery in Seoul, with an estimated 650,000 people a year going under the knife.

    Korea posted stable growth in 2014 in terms of outbound shipments and R&D investments,... but will Korean companies be able to maintain the momentum and protect themselves from external risks this year? Here′s our Song Ji-sun with the outlook. Korea fared relatively well last year, despite slowing global demand and a sluggish economic recovery at home. But the outlook for this year is not all that bright. The machineries and semiconductor industries are expected to enjoy growth this year, backed by steady demand from the U.S. Free trade agreements struck with a dozen countries in recent years have given a boost to the auto, auto parts and textiles sectors. But handset producers will be faced with tough competition in the global market especially in China, where cheap local manufacturers ...

Korea posted stable growth in 2014 in terms of outbound shipments and R&D investments,... but will Korean companies be able to maintain the momentum and protect themselves from external risks this year? Here′s our Song Ji-sun with the outlook. Korea fared relatively well last year, despite slowing global demand and a sluggish economic recovery at home. But the outlook for this year is not all that bright. The machineries and semiconductor industries are expected to enjoy growth this year, backed by steady demand from the U.S. Free trade agreements struck with a dozen countries in recent years have given a boost to the auto, auto parts and textiles sectors. But handset producers will be faced with tough competition in the global market especially in China, where cheap local manufacturers like Xiaomi and Huawei are quickly gaining ground on Samsung and LG Electronics. Chinese companies are catching up with Korean manufacturers in terms of their technological advances and their cheap prices and mass production capabilities helped their output surpass Korea′s, both in the shipbuilding and auto sectors. Considering that half of Korean export items compete with Japanese products on the international stage, the weakening Japanese yen remains a risk for Korean exporters. Industry analysts say companies need to stick to what they′re good at while improving their quality and reducing costs. "Companies must give up on sectors that are not performing well, and focus their resources and manpower on sectors that are excelling in the market." In fact, the overhaul has already started. Samsung sold its petrochemical sectors to Hanwha Group last year while Hyundai Steel acquired Dongbu Special Steel. Such M&As and restructuring will speed up this year. Song Ji-sun, Arirang News.
