      @MrJoker The South Korean economy is mainly driven by exports, especially high tech and semiconductors. Its economy does not rely much on tourism. Ten years ago almost no one knew about BTS. kpop and kdrama were not as popular in the world as they are today, despite that its economy was thriving

      Tbh it’s mostly because of BTS, they bring around 5 billion dollars every year to the Korean economy. 1/10 people travel to SK just because of them. So they have the biggest impact in SK’s economy.

      1910-1945 The Korean Peninsula was Japanese territory. During that time, there were World War I and World War II, but it developed because there was no damage to the Korean Peninsula.
      The Korean Peninsula was devastated after 1945.

    I travelled to South Korea before covid-19 and the country is so beautiful. Their transportation system shocked me is cheap and good, most of all very clean compared to New York city's disgusting subways lol. Their food is delicious and in many cases interesting like kimchi, it took me a little but I really enjoy eating it. They love spicy foods. Chicken and Coffee shops everywhere! Really want to go there again

    If you check the average duration of the Chinese dynasties and the average retention period of all countries in the world, you can see how well the dynasties in Korean history have been maintained. It is important to recognize that the period of invasion in the history of the Korean dynasty, which averages more than 500 years, is a short period of time.

      Good point. Ancient Korean invented the Idu and the Kukyôl by modifying Chinese characters. That's exactly how the Phoenician alphabet evolved into the today's alphabet and the Cyrillic script.
      By the way, Kukyôl spread to Japan and provoked appearance of Katakana.

      Korean don’t have its own characters. How can they record this history? After Korean learned to write Chinese characters, they started to record their history. We cannot call a civilization the civilization when they don’t have their own characters.

      The diplomacy between King Chungnyeol and Kublai Khan of Goryeo was successful. In fact, Goryeo cannot beat Mongolia. I have been resisting for over 30 years. Kublai Khan said that the crown prince of Goryeo had come to visit him and said that this meant that I was destined to win the Great Khan, so he accepted it very gladly.

    I actually lived in the old capital of Gaya, Gimhae, for a year. It has a really interesting history as well. It was kind of like the Switzerland of Korea at the time, maintaining its independence by trading with everyone and staying neutral. It was most famous for its iron, which it traded to the three other kingdoms as well as Japan.

In addition, it failed to become centralized and eventually became a part of Silla.

Above all, the amount of interest that people are showing to Korea is quite fascinating. When I was studying in the states, people often asked me whether I was from China or Japan, and when I said I was from Korea, oftentimes they wouldn't know anything about my country.

    Goguryeo had a strong "dictator" Yeongaesomun, so when he died, his sons had inheritance issues, which split Goguryeo and weakened it. Goguryeo, Silla, and Baekjae are origins of Korea's rich culture such as Kimchi, Hanbok, and Gat. Goguryeo had a heating system called "Ondol", which is only distinctly used in Korean culture. This proves that Korean culture is deep rooted from Goguryeo and other ancient countries :)) Balhae succeeded Goguryeo. Btw thanks for covering Korea

    2:58 Story of Myth
    When gojeoson was created, a bear and a tiger asked the king/god dude if they could be humans. the king dude said that he would make the bear and tiger into humans. but there was a catch. they needed to eat garlic in a cave without seeing light for over 100 days. The bear kepted on eating and the tiger ended up giving up. The bear's hardwork had turned her into a beautiful woman. Every boy in the village wanted to marry her. But after finding out that she was a bear, they didnt want to marry her. The woman was upset. The tiger came to her and offered her to come back to the wildlife with the tiger. shd declined. The king dude asked the girl if she wanted to be her wife. she gladly accpeted it. and boom done. now my finger is burning

    The first king of Goguryeo was a prince who had been pushed out of the power of Buyeo. The first kings of Baekje were the princes who had been pushed out of the power of Goguryeo. Later, Goguryeo conquested Okjeo and Buyeo. And later, Baekje called themsleves descendants of the destroyed Buyeo, so Baekje changed its name to Nambuyeo.(southern Buyeo). Balhae was a dynasty which was founded by nobles of Goguryeo. They were all ancient kingdoms of Korea.

    Fun facts about Gyeongju, the capital of the Silla dynasty of Korea:
    1. Some Arabian records say there were so many gold in the city that even some house roofs were decorated by gold and the air was so clean that it could heal a person
    2. It was the 4th largest city in the world at that time
    3. It was the second longest city which was the capital of a country in the world(1000 years of Silla)

    You should make correct video. 10:59 Korea had tributary relationship with China but Joseon was independent country. The Chinese tributary system was a largely symbolic Confucian world order with its basis in trade & philosophical relations between foreign states & various Chinese dynasties. Its relation to the sovereignty of some states was flexible & diverse. Larger states (e.g., Joseon Korea & Japan) enjoyed full sovereignty in both domestic & foreign affairs, & their intl status cannot be considered ' dependent states'.

    I'm a Korean and one of my ancestors was the general-governor ( or feudal lord ) near the Seorabeol, specifically nowadays northern Busan. That is what is written in my family's lineage book.
    And also tracing to the root of our family's ancestry, I have the blood of both Gaya and Shilla.
    Yes it was like at least 1000 years ago and too ancient but nonetheless that gives me the feeling of belong that the history of our nation is also the history of my own family.

    Korea has always been the country of the people. Through hard times, when the government officials ran to china, sold the country to Mongolia, surrendered to Japan, it was the common people that came together to protect the country with many right-minded generals. We see this happening in modern Korea as well.

    I just want to point out that Suibhne sorta downplayed Yi Sun-Shin. Not only did he only have THREE turtle ships, he lost his rank, had to restart from the common soldier divisions, and rose his way back up to Admiral General... TWICE. The turtle ships were also destroyed in the middle of the war, and every single time Yi had fought, his ships were almost always outnumbered by the Japanese forces

    If possible, it would have been nice to introduce the founding philosophy of the Korean people(The myth of the founding of Gojoseon).
    The founding ideology of Korea is '홍익인간 Hong-Ik-In-Gan'; It has an altruistic national vision of building a nation that benefits humanity widely.
    I believe that one day in the future, if Korea reunifies, it will become a peaceful country that helps people around the world.
