More about South Korea

  • LOCALTIMEZONE: Latest statistics of population in the country of South Korea, including languages spoken, urban population, birth rate, fertility rate and life expectancy for both men and women.

 

Geography

South Korea meets the Yellow Sea in the west and the Sea of ​​Japan in the east. The country is separated from Japan by a strait, the Korea Strait. The Taebaek Mountains (up to 1708 m) run along the east coast. It extends into North Korea and drops steeply to the Sea of ​​Japan. The Seobaek Mountains (up to 1915 m) branches off from the Tabaek Mountains to the southwest. The land becomes more hilly to the west and merges into several plains on the coast. Most of the rivers flow west and flow into the Yellow Sea. This includes the Hangang on which the capital Seoul is located. To the south flows the Nakdonggang, with 525 km the longest river in the country. Check sourcemakeup to see South Korea an Asian Tiger.

In the south and west, bays reach far into the country. The coast in the south consists of river valleys that, like fjords, were flooded by sea water after the last ice age. Today there are numerous islands in front of it. The largest of them is Jeju Island with the extinct Hallasan volcano, the highest mountain in South Korea (1950 m). Its volcanic landscape is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The tides are very noticeable on the west coast. The difference between ebb and flow is up to 9 m.

Two thirds of South Korea is covered by deciduous and coniferous forests. Most of them were afforested from the 1960s onwards. Evergreen laurel forests thrive in the south. Also, bamboo is common.

The climate is cool-temperate, subtropical on the south coast and on Jeju Island. Winters are cold and dry. The average temperature in Seoul in January is -5 ° C. It gets milder to the south. Most of the precipitation falls in summer when the monsoons blow from the west. Precipitation decreases towards the east. In spring, the west wind brings fine sand from the deserts of China and Mongolia. It is polluted with pollutants, so there is always smog. In summer and early autumn, typhoons can cause flooding.

Population and Religion

South Korea has 51.6 million residents, almost all of them Koreans. About half of the population live in and around Seoul. Incheon, a city of three million on the Yellow Sea, also belongs to this metropolitan area. The second largest city with 3.5 million residents is the sea trade metropolis of Busan in the southeast.

South Korea is one of the countries with the lowest birth rates in the world. Political measures such as free kindergartens and paid parental leave have so far not stopped the trend. Educated women prefer to be economically independent and marry less and less because they no longer want to take care of the family alone. However, women are paid less than men, even if they have the same qualifications. Many South Koreans work with fixed-term contracts, which are associated with great uncertainty.

Society is still very much based on the teachings of Confucius. This includes respect for the family, respect for old age, social superiority and subordination, as well as a good education. South Korean parents want their children to go to the best schools and universities. In order for them to pass the entrance exams, they often have to take additional classes in addition to school. 80% of young people attend higher secondary school (grades 10–12). There is a functioning welfare state with a dense network of health centers in the cities.

State and religion are separate. Half of South Koreans do not belong to any religious community. Compared to other East Asian countries, there are many Christians, mostly Protestants. A sixth of the population describes themselves as Buddhists. New religions are also strong. They are often referred to as sects. The »Unification Church«, also known as the Mun sect, founded in 1954 in Seoul by San Myung Mun (* 1920, † 2012), is world-famous.
