Foreign Correspondents Ep.172 - Current Status and Future of S. Korea's Tourism Industry
The number of tourists to S. Korea reaches a new record high. What’s in store for S. Korea’s tourism industry?

The number of foreign tourists to South Korea hit a new record high. The Ministry of Culture, Sports and Tourism and the Korea Tourism Organization estimated that the number of foreign tourists to South Korea reached 17.5 million in 2019. Among the factors that propelled the number of tourists was the popularity of K-pop. According to a survey of some 10,000 K-pop fans overseas, nine out of 10 expressed their desire to visit South Korea. The revitalization of the tourism industry has a positive impact on the nation’s economy, including the creations of jobs and the revitalization of the local economy. However, some tourist sites are suffering from the side effects of "overtourism" which has led to a decline in the quality of life of residents. This week’s Foreign Correspondents will discuss the status and future of South Korea’s tourism industry.
