Korean peninsula was surrounded by the great powers of Orient which made rapid invasions to take place from its warring nations including China and Japan.
War happened in everyday life and Koreans had to be cautious all the time to fight for their own life. This eventually formed Korean’s personalities to be extreme, tempered, and stubborn which led in to development of busy cities.
During the Korean War, many common people were betrayed from the government as it moved into near city of Busan leaving out huge number of people to North Koreans. This growing distrust toward its government led people to share socialist ideas. Soon socialism grew significantly in Korean society.
Growing socialism in Korea led to growth of collectivism and lack of individualism which contribute in developing strong and deep relationship within each community however, each community would be careless about other people’s business and act more self-centered.
