South Korea has experienced incredible economic growth in its recent history. It wasn't too long ago that South Korea was considered one of the Four Asian Tigers (Hong Kong, Singapore, Taiwan, and South Korea). That is, nations that showed incredible economic growth throughout the mid to late 1990s. These countries, once well behind the world economically, rose from their dreary situation to become powerhouses on the global economic front.
Whew, that was a heavy intro...!
Well, most Americans can attest to what happens when a nation obtains economic strength and status. We get fat and lazy!! Ok, maybe not quite that bad, but it's safe to say there is evidence that some smidgen of truth is in that last statement. So it will go for the Asian Tigers.
I received a great question from someone on YouTube about Koreans and whether or not they diet. What is Korean food like? What's happening here in this rapidly changing nation?
