Is South Korea a Developed Country?

South Korea has one of the most stable economies in the world and is home to some of the biggest corporations, such as Samsung and Hyundai.

Cities host a variety of beautiful ancient buildings and gates as well as some of the most modern buildings. South Korea is also home to some of the most beautiful national parks in the world  and the government has been very active at renovating urban centres by filling empty spaces with greenery.

Their success is based on a mixed economy where businesses take care of production and government invests in essential services such as Eco-projects and education. One of these government-funded programs is EPIK, which hires 1,100 ESL teachers every semester and pays one of the most competitive packages in all of East Asia. ESL teachers take home approximately $2,000/month and the package also includes accommodation, health insurance, bonuses, and more. A 100-hour online TESOL certificate automatically qualifies teachers for a higher pay level, starting at 2.0 million won per month in some areas and 2.1 million in other.
