South Korea is a success story about the positive effects of technology. Boasting the fastest average internet connection in the world, this relatively small country has become an economic powerhouse. In addition to being a producer, the South Korean people provide a lucrative market for a variety of products. However, lacking a formal peace agreement after the Korean War, Seoul continues to have a complicated relationship with its neighbor, North Korea.
Attitudes toward North Korea differ within the South Korean population, but a majority of South Koreans feel that the two states should work together or help each other. In the past few years, economic ties have decreased, as the value of goods South Korea exported to North Korea has plummeted. Most South Koreans still think reunification of the two Koreas is necessary, but the current political climate makes this difficult to envision in the near future.
