In June 2019, it was reported by “Statistics Korea” that in South Korea, 453,000 people from the ages of 15 to 29 were unemployed, resulting in a 10.4% youth unemployment rate. This is 65,000 more than the number last year, and is one of the highest youth unemployment rates in the country over the past two decades.
How do Korean citizens feel about this? Why do they think it’s become so hard to find a job in Korea? Let’s hit the streets of Seoul to find out.

Our vision is to build a lasting grassroots movement of young people from every country to report on real social and cultural issues. We believe having meaningful discussions with people with different opinions is extremely important. We also believe that any ordinary person can deliver real news and commentary. Through our original and in-depth interviews of real people, we will challenge you – the global youth – to think critically and challenge various cultural and social issues. If this resonates with you, try to get involved in any capacity and volunteer for ASIAN BOSS ►https://goo.gl/forms/4IM0VEoFKAB0pJxG3
