    Default South Korea Appreciation Thread

    Starting off with this article of beautiful landscapes:

    Artist Captures the Incredible Landscapes of Mysterious and Beautiful South Korea




    Jaewoon U, a photographer from Seul is the name behind these breathtaking reflected landscapes of the gorgeous South Korea. Jaewoon is mainly focused on landscape photography, but what he did with this series of images is simply incredible. He managed to show the secret, pure and mystical beauty of South Korea through surreal landscapes. Composing the photos perfectly and using the water in a brilliant way, Jaewoon created two stunning photos in just one take. His images show the powerful beauty of intact nature that seems like it is Heaven on Earth. Hopefully, this incredible series of images will awaken something in people, make them appreciate the beauty we have here on our planet, so we can save marvelous places like this from being destroyed by the modern age. If you liked our collection of Jeawoons work, you can visit his profile here, and enjoy some more of his fantastic work.

    The ancient Korean kingdom of Silla:
    Silla (57 BC[note 1] – 935 AD) (Korean: 신라; Hanja: 新羅; RR: Silla Korean pronunciation: [ɕil.la]) was a kingdom located in southern and central parts of the Korean Peninsula. Silla, along with Baekje and Goguryeo, formed the Three Kingdoms of Korea.

    Founded by Hyeokgeose of Silla, of the Park family, the Korean[2] dynasty was ruled by the Gyeongju Gim (Kim) (김, 金) clan for 586 years, the Miryang Bak (Park) (박, 朴) clan for 232 years and the Wolseong Seok (석, 昔) clan for 172 years. It began as a chiefdom in the Samhan confederacies, once allied with Sui China and then Tang China, until it eventually conquered the other two kingdoms, Baekje in 660 and Goguryeo in 668. Thereafter, Later Silla occupied most of the Korean Peninsula, while the northern part re-emerged as Balhae, a successor-state of Goguryeo. After nearly 1,000 years of rule, Silla fragmented into the brief Later Three Kingdoms of Silla, Later Baekje, and Taebong, handing over power to Goryeo in 935.[3]

    I simply love their neon lights adds, even if people might dislike and say it's visual polution, this one in Myeong-Dong, Seoul:


    The Miracle of Han River, how South Korea turned from a third world country devastated by the war in the 50's (poorer than many African nations) to one of the biggest global economies, a very high-tech country with the fastest Internet connection:
