World Cup Quiz South Korea

intro1

Last but certainly not least in Group H is South Korea. This team is one of the most successful Asian teams and has participated in eight consecutive and nine overall FIFA World Cup tournaments, the most for any Asian team. Despite going through five World Cup tournaments without winning a match, South Korea became the first and currently only Asian team to reach the semi-final stages when they co-hosted the 2002 tournament with Japan. They have since improved their ability to play on foreign soil and were able to reach the Round of 16 in the 2010 World Cup. SO will they continue their upwards spiral in Brazil?

South Korea was really put on the map when Psy scored his global hit Gangnam Style. However, it has long been an undiscovered tourism gem. Ancestral traditions, such as a Confucian legacy dating from the Joseon Dynasty (1392-1910) that continues to thrive, now cohabit with what has become an ultra-modernist society since the country's phenomenal economic development in the 1970's. Take Seoul, for example, the country's foremost megalopolis and home to almost half its inhabitants: huge shopping malls rub shoulders with traditional markets such as that of Dongdaemun and sky scrapers stand side by side the remains of royal palaces, all of which to the apparent glory of shopping. But South Korea can do much than satisfy our consumerist cravings. Just follow in its inhabitants'' footsteps as they flee their urban panoramas to enjoy an amazing wealth of natural landscapes. Explore the national parks of Hallasan and Seoraksan, relax on the sandy beaches of Jeju Island, swoop down the snowbound slopes of Gangwon-do and admire the coastal plains covered in paddy fields. South Korea conceals a treasure trove, illustrated by the sophistication of its magnificent celadon. A country capable of quenching all appetites!
