The Korean Story 华丽的挑战

The Koreans have an intense competitive spirit and this value system has permeated every level of the society. In this regard the Koreans have two targets to beat – first, beat the Japanese and second, the world. Now they are bent on being better than the Japanese in every aspect of life.

In Korea, a leader is fully responsible and accountable for his actions. Performance and responsibility mean nothing less than achieving success while accountability means being answerable for failures.
