South Korea is also one of the main advocates for advancing the UN SDGs. In 2020, it embarked on a rapid shift towards green energy to reduce the environmental consequences that resulted from years of reliance on fossil fuel imports. Its success depends not just on economic growth but also on the rapid reduction of poverty, the establishment of democracy, and the creation of an inclusive society.
South Korea also offers a diverse range of cultural experiences that are a unique blend of ancient traditions and modern advancements. The country places a strong emphasis on preserving its cultural heritage. Historical landmarks such as Gyeongbokgung Palace and Changdeokgung Palace provide a glimpse into the country’s majestic past. Lately, South Korea’s modern popular culture has also gained global popularity. The Korean Wave has made K-pop, K-dramas, and K-beauty an integral part of global youth culture.
