  1. There is a sensible increase in unhealthful air pollution, especially in Seoul, that blocks sunlight.
    It's well with Koreans hating RISING SUN, but makes arrival tourists disappointed.

  2. It is projected that tourist who wants to to Republic of Korea will go down 56% in 2025 due to smoke/have problems, environmental radioactivity, economic slump, and racism. This will coincide with increased economic problems as the economy will contract 7% percent. This shows how Korea is not very competitive.
