1910-2010 in Korea

This project illustrates the relationship between Korea and its neighboring countries from 1910 to 2010.

Korea has grown rapidly during this period, both as a result of its own agency and the influence of its involvement with other countries. For example, as a result of the 1988 Olympic Games in Seoul, Korea entered the consciousness of many foreigners for the first time. This then brought a growing number of migrant workers from nearby Asian nations and beyond.
