What Do Koreans Think Of Foreigners (In Korea)

The number of foreigners visiting Korea to travel, live or work has increased.

In the past 10 years this number has gone up massively due to a fascination with ALL THINGS Korean. 

Things like English teaching jobs, language learning at Korean universities, and of course K-Pop, food and fashion are incredibly popular.
