  • Country overview minus-thick plus-thick

    South Korea, officially called the Republic of Korea, is a country in East Asia, covering the southern part of the Korean Peninsula and sharing its only land border with the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea (North Korea).

    South Korea has a population of around 51.5 million people, and is one of the world's most densely populated countries at 503 people per square kilometre, a number more than 10 times the global average. South Korea is a highly developed country and the world's 11th largest economy. Its capital, Seoul, is a major global city and half of South Korea's population live in the Seoul Capital Area, the fourth largest metropolitan economy in the world.

    Nearly 70% of South Korea's land area is mostly uninhabitable due to it being mountainous, a major factor in the population concentration. Despite the large population and city lifestyle, South Koreans are known for being very active, with most weekends spent out of doors for many people.

    It’s known for its green, hilly countryside dotted with cherry trees and centuries-old Buddhist temples, coastal fishing villages, beautiful sub-tropical islands, and its advanced high-tech cities such as Seoul, the capital. Today, South Korea is known for its globally influential pop culture such as K-pop and TV dramas, part of the phenomenon referred to as the Korean Wave. Korean and English are the major two languages used in South Korea, and generally English will get you by for exchange.
