South Korea Rising
During the past century, this jutting portion of East Asia has been rocked by explosive political events. Following Japanese occupation from 1910-1945, the peninsula got divided into two regions i.e. North Korea and South Korea. In 1950, South Korea was attacked by its northern neighbours, after which the country underwent years of political and social turmoil.
Today, South Korea stands as a developed nation with a rapidly expanding economy and a leading centre for scientific research and development. This positive outlook has been boosted by the successful handling of the Summer Olympics in 1988 as well as the 2002 soccer World Cup. These events has lead to the popularity of South Korea as a vacation destination of which Australia and Asian holidaymakers constitute the majority of those visiting this scenic landscape. Shipping to South Korea is also given a boost because of this tourist activity.
Another constructive moment for South Korea was the remarkable meeting between the two Korean head of states in June 2000. This summit lead to several discussions over a period of time following which in 2007, South Korean President Roh Moo-Hyun and North Korean leader Kim Jong -il signed an eight- point agreement that spoke about permanent peace between the neighboring nations. These co-operative talks have also facilitated parcel delivery to South Korea from its northern counterpart.
The UK Connection
North Korea is not the only nation with which this country shares good relations. Apart from the national sport of martial art taekwondo, football has a massive following in the country. Along with the local K-league that gets a decent following, most Korean football fans are regular followers of the European leagues including the English Premier League. Send a parcel to South Korea from the United Kingdom in the form of a football memorabilia as it will be much appreciated by the receiver.
