    South korea should limit their education system... Poor the kids who need to be struggle.... I mean as kids we need to have time to release our stress from study with meet their friend at outside... But at night they actually should study at their home not school cause at home they can be more relax and open minded... I mean if they study untill night with the same environment their brain might get stuck...at school at night... There some student must scared if going to school at night bc we know what is the matter which is ghost... If they just study at home they will feel safe and feel more realx and free.. I think they should study at least 8 hours at school then they can go home evening... To rest or meet friends but at night they can do some revision and study

    I've always thought of S.Korea as an ideal country to visit, explore and get to know but it's far from ideal if you want to actually live there.

    this is literally all asian countries except only do people want to live in japan korea singapore maybe china and dubai
    as an asian who moved abroad, it's always hard, even in usa, because more oppurtunities means the other asians in the new country and rich will also be there to compete and so would be international students.

    For a male: have connections
    For a female: be beautiful
    Those are basically all the things that matter.

    It's a great topic! One thing that a lot of people need to keep in mind is that, visiting a country for a short period of time is awesome. Only when you live there for a longer period of time can you see a little clearer.
    I've been living in Korea for almost a decade. It definitely has it's problems, as mentioned by the interviewees, but overall, it's an awesome country to live in.

    I used to live in Korea, but most of my friends never really opened up about their concerns like this. It was interesting to see that people on the streets share similar concerns to Americans.

    I'd never want to live in Korea I'm happy where I live even though it's exhausting. Beauty in Korea doesn't really make me think of them as beautiful rather I think they have clean skin, but their features of the face to me are boring; they all look the same no natural beauty or stand outs they all look the same just like Japos look like squirrels to me. What is beauty to me? Even on my worst days I'd not want to trade faces with an Asian, so what is beauty then?

    What surprised me was how similar their opinion of South Korea was very much the same as any given sample of Americans taking about living in the USA.
    I mean the ability to criticize and not contact having to feel like you have to speak positively of your nation is always a good sign.

    I live in Honduras, where getting robbed is part of the day, we live afraid of getting killed because high murder rates, cities are ugly as fk, we have no trains, just old buses, taxis are dangerous because bad people drive them and are also expensive, education left a lot to be desired, healthcare system is bad and I mean bad as fk with uppercase B, 60% of population is living under extreme proverty, you can't buy nice clothes because you get robbed or killed, you can't buy a nice car because you get robbed or killed, you can't start a small business because you have to pay taxes to gangs, earning an income of 1666+ USD is saying "Hi, please kill me and take my money".
    So Korea doesn't look bad at all to me.

    As someone who’s been around Koreans for a while, I think it’s more they have fed and told these idealistic lifestyles and the narrow ways to achieve them for so long, people of course aren’t happy, because they developed the “way to happiness “ in a very narrow path. Even more, young people have no power or even financial resources except for the elite or well off, so they take conservative paths from fashion to meeting people because they don’t want to alienate anyone in their respective groups that may help them eventually. It’s quite sad. They focus on everyone else so much, many forgot to develop themselves. I enjoy Korea myself, I try to help people, but it’s not my problem and they told me such. Oh well, off for some beef galbi!

    Every country has its good and bad side. But I am thankful that I lived in the Philippines. We don’t stress ourselves about being on top, we treasure the most about friendship, character and living the best of what you have. Problem will always be there, but going through it with a happy smile and friends around you makes living a fulfilling one. PS: this is my opinion.

    Better for them to open their own insight, faith, and gratefulness! Be kind hearted is what needs to be taught, not just about that study-working life. In fact, those competition is only exist in this world.

    I used to work in a Korean embassy, and a lot of young people came to ask how can they go to live to SK, because they were so in love about what they've seen in Kdramas or wanted to see their Kpop idols, that they didn't realize how it was actually... And yes, SK is a great country, but their work and study culture are no joke, even for themselves 😬

    If the food is as good as described I dont have a problem. I dont think any sane person goes in another country expecting it to be as they saw it in tv. In America not all men and women are like Hollywood actors so I suppose Korea works the same.
