My name is Ann Kwen, and I am from South Korea.
My mother country, South Korea, had been going through huge development after the Korean war,1960. In the modern generation of Korea everyone envied the same thing for a long time. “best college name value”, “be a doctor or a lawyer”, “buy an apartment in the city”, and “have kids”. This was the primary success model that everyone believed in, and in previous times this seems to be “knowledge” for most of the people, and it still is.
However, in 2020 South Korea the unemployment rate was 3.1% (20.08, KOSIS). Even if a person had gone through a top college and the best education, it is still hard to get jobs. Also, the highest paying job has changed to doctor to you tubers, which does not require the best education. Now, the “success model” seems to be broken into half. people started looking for better values and the true model of success, by focusing more on themselves.
What I learned from this is that everything we believe it is true might be proven to be falsely made by society and the peoples. I believe that we can never know things for sure, and I believe that we have to keep questioning and keep trying to have doubt on things that we think we know for sure. I think this would eventually evaluate people, and make the society grow.
