They either go to hostess bars, anmas (안마) or pay for freelancers whose business cards litter the streets of Korea. South Korea has one of the highest abortion rates in the world!

facts about south korea

For a developed country South Korea boasts one of the highest abortion rates in the world.With a population of 50 million roughly 1.7 million of unborn were aborted in 2007.Sure that’s some time ago but if you think about all the ‘unreported’ abortions you can imagine that the number is higher now!Granted most families want a boy so they abort girl fetuses.Then there’s the fact that most Koreans don’t use condoms and view abortion as a form of contraception.These preceding facts in my opinion are to due to this one:South Korean schools don’t teach sexual education.In South Korea talking about ‘sex’ is so taboo adults fail to teach teenagers its’ dangers in schools. The school system fears that talking about sexual education can open a can of worms and make sexual dynamics in Korea (like rampant prostitution and abortions) worse.  I personally believe the opposite would happen. South Korea has the highest suicide rate of the modern world!In 2009 roughly 31 out of 100,000 people committed suicide per year (that’s a big number!) In Seoul the government put barriers in the subways to help prevent this trend. Sadly the culture is so homogeneous and unforgiving that many Koreans just take their lives! In 2009 there were scandals of famous people committing suicide for financial (or other) reasons.Yes these facts about South Korea aren’t very cheerful. Hopefully these will lighten the mood.One out of 10 marriages in South Korea are interracial.So much for being a homogeneous country. A tenth of the marriages are international and increasing!This is not surprising once you understand the truth because: Koreans have been having interracial marriages since 48 AD!

A Korean king named Kim Gimhae (of a southeastern Korean state) married a north Indian princess. Many Koreans in that region claim to be descendants of their union.There are more examples from the middle-ages and even later as China and Korea traded frequently!So contrary to what people may think, Korea too is a country of mixed races. It only need to accept it.
