Even though many non-Koreans, or non-Asians, confuse the Koreans for Japanese or Chinese people, it is apparent that South Koreans and its country has its own distinctive culture. Korean girls, or women, are said to be attractive and pretty even though that is not true for every Korean female. Korea has a very beautiful language that many foreigners want to learn. It is famous for its fast development from a third world country to one of the powerful countries in the world. Korea is known for its developed technology such as the Internet, cellphones, mp3 players, and many more. However, Korea currently suffers from an insecure and corrupted government. Also, Korea is pretty polluted since so many people are living on such a small piece of land. Many Koreans believe that the Sea of Japan is wrongly named by people who are ignorant of history. Also, foreigners like to look at Korea as a wanna-be Japan country, when Koreans aren't envious of Japan at all. Koreans aren't jealous of Japan-- they are mad at it and its people for the brutal acts they did to Korea and its people back in time.
