I know some thing about Korea, and I love Korea. Korea has a catastrophic history, but the Korean people never give up, and they succeed. The Korean people are so tough ,strong.All the time they are optimistic . But recently, they changed,they lacked in confidence. They are afraid of the other countries' strong,and they think they are no longer strong, so they took every thing they had to let others know" this is ours", they put a "big" in front of the Korea.I thought Korea was big,strong.But when I saw the "big",it became so small.they have to improve it by words. KOREAN PEOPLE,all of you are so strong all the time,can't you be more confident,even or just as confident as in the past.

i have only began to know about korea when their movies for televison or television series started to have an international circulation- in asia and in the americas....since then, i have watched a couple of these said movies and series and through those, i was able to grasp of what their culture is....granted that these shows do not necessarily show what is really happening in korea but come to think of it, these shows are based on what is happening in korea at the time those shows were produced....so somehow, i know that these are really giving us a glimpse of what korea is all about.... and with that glimpse, i could see that just like any other nation, korea is going through different phases...and as each phase moves from phase to another, we could see that there is a strong point and a weak point....in a sense, they have to have those weak points to be able to better themselves to get those strong points that we all covet for....
