South Korea is an emerging world leader: Economically, politically and with a vibrant cultural showcase in cinema, music and art.

This film includes major interviews with Professor No of the SNU, Christian Oliver of the Financial Times and Tyler Brule, founder of Monocle; the definitive style magazine. See how South Korea transformed into the economic miracle, its place in Asia today, and why it is seen by many to be a nation at ‘the centre of the world’.
