The country’s impressive economic transformation following the Korean War has placed Korea as one of the world’s largest economies and this growth is a reason why many foreign nationals are attracted to live and work there. For the first time in 2007 the country surpassed one million foreign nationals and in 2016 that figure went up to two million.
