Abstract

South Korea's economic and industrial rise over the past decade has been a subject of envy. Here is a country that has gone from being 'the one with the fermented vegetables' to the high-tech gadget innovation hub that it is today. Samsung and LG have attained worldly status, with consumer electronics that can give the big old boys from across the Sea of Japan a good run for their money. Yet, despite its success, the country remains mired in much of its painful past – from the divide between the former kingdoms of Silla, Baekje and Goguryeo to the North-South schism.
