Synopsis


Hidden Korea
Although the United States fought a war in Korea, this divided country of 69 million people remains vague to most Americans. This PBS video provides viewers with background on the traditional Confucian-based culture, while also examining the way Korea is changing and modernizing. Once primarily a village-based society, in today's Korea, the great majority of citizens live in urban areas. Nevertheless, traditional clan-based ties remain strong for many Koreans. Despite the war fought in the early '50s, and the end of the Cold War, North Korea remains a Communist country. ~ Steve Blackburn, Rovi

    As a social studies teacher I was looking for a video about the history of the country. This video did have some background information but a lot of it was about the foods of Korea. My students seemed to enjoy it. It was perfect for one class period to give a little taste of the fabulous culture of Korea.
