Population


The Korean population is primarily homogenous with a relatively small number of foreigners living there as compared to other countries. The population density is among the highest in the world and is easily seen in the larger cities. The Korean population has seen an explosion in immigration however in the past few years, and this is slowly leading to a more cosmopolitan Korea.

While Koreans used to have large families the size of the family has nosedived recently leading to concern about filling rural jobs and occupations. This has led to immigration from other Asian nations to fill these jobs.

In addition the need for factory workers to remain competitive has also led to an increase in foreign manpower. This and Korea’s slowly changing attitudes towards the West are giving Korea a global identity as these foreign residents bring back parts of Korean culture with them including dramas, foods, and attitudes.
