Authors: Seungmin Song

For South Korea, globalization started to take a significant role after the end of Korean war. Even though there are records of international trade during the “Koryo” period and a process of Westernization with the impact of Japan’s Globalization during the Japanese Occupation, it was nearly resetted by the devastating effects of the War. As South Korea required a big shift after massive destruction during the war, the country started planning on earning international monetary in order to develop economically. Globalization of the country was the fundamental process for Korea’s fast development in the past 50 years. Japan, on the other hand, had a more gradual process through globalism. The first trade between Japan and Western countries took place in 1543, where they shared religion, economic styles, and their products. With no major barrier against the process of globalization like Korea, they have developed through a considerable amount of time with globalism that they were able to secure their own cultures without altering it with a dramatic drift through globalization. Japan also have a history for showing dominant nationalism through the event of World War 2. With its emphasis in strict nationalism impacted the way they developed their own globalization in their country.
