Why Doing Business in South Korea? Known as one of East Asia’s ‘Dragons’, South Korea has become one of the world’s most significant emerging markets. Despite outside influences from its neighbouring countries, South Korea has maintained a distinct and homogeneous identity influenced by its history and religious beliefs.
