바야흐로 (bah-ya-hue-ro: on the top of, in full swing), now we have reached the final publish of Previous and New Cultures in Trendy Korean Society (Half 5). I’ve been observing adjustments in Korean tradition for some time and amassing concepts to share my private opinions on it.
As we speak, I wish to discuss among the distinctive components of Korean life, corresponding to know-how in each day life and the distinctive home fee system.
- IT 강대국 (kang-dae-guk: a strong nation) 대한민국 (Dae-han-min-guk: Republic of Korea)
As a local Korean, who has been observing Korean digital tradition from far-off, I usually really feel that I could also be not noted of the middle of fast-changing know-how evolution, significantly in communication know-how. I’m a median one that makes use of know-how in my each day life with out main points, however I generally really feel it’s overwhelming to attempt to meet up with the pace of know-how development.
If I used to be residing in Korea, my psychological exhaustion in know-how may be extra intense solely as a result of there are numerous technological choices to boost the standard of life. Superior know-how is deeply immersed in fashionable Korean life from 근무 (geun-moo: work), 가사 (gah-sah: housekeeping), 육아 (yook-ah: childcare), 교육 (gyo-yook: schooling), 의료 (eui-ryo: medical care), 통신 (tong-shin: communication), 교통 (gyo-tong: trandsporation) to 물류 (mool-ryo: logistics) – the record appears limitless! Each time I hear about new know-how traits from Korea, my jaw simply drops.
If we use know-how for the correct function, the advantages from it are super. Please take into account, for instance, how technological advances have benefitted Koreans by controlling the unfold of COVID-19.
When COVID-19 had simply damaged out, the Korean authorities instantly created quite a lot of sensible apps that facilitate the Korean residents’ security. As an illustration, if there are any COVID constructive check leads to your neighborhood, you’ll get a discover in your telephone. The discover, after all, gained’t inform you the non-public data of 확진자 (hwak-jin-ja: the confirmed case). It’s merely designed to warn you and your loved ones to be extra cautious in your surroundings.
Communication know-how in Korea has been readily accessible. It facilitates establishing systematic social distancing rules, self-covid testing and different preventative measures nonetheless in use right now. Firstly of the pandemic, when no one appeared to know what to do towards the virus, this sort of system positively helped ameliorate public confusion.
The Korean authorities bought praised by many nations as a result of they did a wonderful job stopping the virus from spreading all through the nation and in preserving the case numbers as little as they may beneath the circumstances. The Korean authorities and the native well being departments had been proactively selling the citizen’s participation in the course of the pandemic utilizing know-how apps. This was the right device for Koreans, who’re already accustomed to using know-how in each day life.
2. 전세제도 (jeon-sae-jae-doh: lease a home or a room on a deposit foundation)
There are primarily 3 ways to have a house in Korea; 월세 (wol-sae: month-to-month lease), 전세 (jeon-sae: lease a home on a deposit foundation) and 매매 (mae-mae: deal in, purchase and promote).
You should purchase or lease a home, that may be a 매매 system. In case you select 월세 (wol-sea: month-to-month lease) fee, that you must pay a comparatively small quantity of 보증금 (boh-jeung-geum: safety deposit, key cash) with month-to-month lease each month.
With a 전세 system, you may lease a home paying a giant portion of the home worth as 전세 보증금 (jeon-sae-boh-jeung-geum: deposit cash for leasing a home). You may take 전세 보증금 again when the contract ends. In case you select 전세 fee system, you don’t have to pay month-to-month/yearly lease.
What did you concentrate on the Korean housing fee system? I imagine 전세 is a novel idea that Koreans take care of once they lease a home.
I hope you take pleasure in studying about points of Korean tradition. I’ve been sharing this sequence of posts for the final couple of months. In case you haven’t had an opportunity to take a look at them but, I strongly suggest you learn them. I might like to know what you assume, and I’ll stay up for listening to from you quickly.
