|Tucked away in northeast Asia, Korea is a nation that boasts a fast growing economy and a lifestyle that brings together the old and the new.
Once known simply as a quiet nation in the East, the peninsula now hardly sleeps as it pulsates with life and commerce.
Despite all such enthusiasm for modernization and globalization, Koreans still greatly value their 5,000 years of history and the Confucian philosophy that has governed the lives of their ancestors.
