South Korea's exports of agricultural and fishery goods have - this year - exceeded ten billion U.S. dollars for the first time ever, thanks in large part to the spread of the Korean Wave of pop culture.
According to the Ministry of Agriculture, Food and Rural Affairs on Sunday, outbound shipments amounted to ten.one billion dollars between January first to November 25th.
That's up 16 percent from the year before.
Seaweed products were the top export item, with Kimchi and ginseng remaining popular in the U.S., Japan and Southeast Asia.
