Life in rural Korea

Life in rural Korea is still very primitive. People live with basic resources like running water and electricity. There are many parts of Korea that do not have access to modern technologies like the Internet. However, things are improving.

In rural areas, we call them “shigol.” 시골 This means countryside. Rice patties. Farm animals. Basic homes.

People don’t know what they are missing, do they? Then again, perhaps you envy the fact that these people live a very simple life. They are not bombarded with the hustle and bustle of a fast-paced society.
