• 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.

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.

    Korea's export-driven economy is still being driven by six industries, which can expect to expand even further in the future. Growth in other industries, however, has stayed flat in recent years. Connie Kim reports. Korean exports are still driven by the six industries that power the country's economy while growth in other industries has remained stagnant.

During the same period, however, the telecommunications, pharmaceutical and transportation industries saw their overseas sales remain flat.

South Korea's miraculous economic development "one of the biggest mysteries of the modern world." It was no mystery to the Koreans. "Park Chung Hee" The miracle worker of the Korea. South Koreans refer to this growth as the Miracle on the Han River. Korea's infrastructure was destroyed by the Korean War (1950-53) and millions lived in poverty at the time, with thousands of unemployed people struggling to fulfill basic needs. When General Park Chung-hee seized power in 1961, South Korea had per capita income of less than $100 per year. During that time, South Korea was mostly dependent on foreign aid. President Park Chung-hee's "Saemaeul (New village) movement" focused on developing rural Korea. It is considered by many Koreans as a symbol of national pride and "can-do" spirit. Besides the Saemaeul movement, the Korean government carried out another effective economic development plan called the Five-Year Plan. There were more than 5 plans created, and they were designed to revive the economy. Each of the plans contributed tremendously in industrialization and enlarging the marketplaces of South Korea. The strong leadership of the Park government and the effective use of cheap labor started a spark in the South Korean economy. Having almost no natural resources and always suffering from overpopulation in its small territory, which deterred continued population growth and the formation of a large internal consumer market, South Korea adapted an export-oriented economic strategy to fuel its economy. In less than four decades, this "hopeless" city was completely transformed into a world leading global city, a centre of business and commerce in Asia and a highly developed world city and economic hub, having among the most advanced technological infrastructure in the world. In 2010,GDP per capita of $30,000 and South Korea seventh largest exporter and tenth largest importer in the world. Now days South Korea is a high-income developed country and has a market economy which ranks 15th in the world.
