UNDERSTANDING MODERN KOREA
Korea has become a ‘hybrid society’, which calls for a revisited understanding of modern Korea. Currently Korea is juxtaposed between 1) a contemporary fast-paced Korea with strong roots in the Korean Confucianism and 2) a society in which the Confucian “Guidelines for Family Values” are eroding, giving way to a new ‘Bravo my Life’-trend.
