Recruiter In Korea

The Honest Truth About Recruiting in Korea

Only 4 of 10 Koreans content with life quality

with 2 comments

This from the Korea Herald.  It doesn’t state what criteria was asked that resulted in the conclusion or did they just ask that single question:  Are you happy?

Not surprising though.  Maybe it’s just me but when I go to Japan, everyone seems to be smiling and a lot more happier that the grimness that you see around here.  I think unhappiness here starts when children are robbed of their social freedom from a very young age.

Only four out of 10 Koreans appear to be satisfied with the quality of their lives, a survey released Sunday by Citibank Inc. indicated and Yonhap News reported. According to the survey of 500 adults nationwide, just 43 percent of the respondents said they are somewhat or very satisfied with the current quality of their lives.

  1. I am personally not suprised. Although, N=500 is much to small a pool for the number of citizens in this country. As soon as the drastically outdated Neo-Confucian ideologies are dropped, Korean citizens will feel the freedom they have been longing for.

    Just my spin. But I don’t think I am far off the mark.

  2. The suicide rates in this country prove that people here are not happy or satisfied.

    The government is even trying to get citizens to have more sex with their Wednesday lights out program because they know they aren’t satisfied in that category either.

    Lousy Korea
