It seems now that every phonomenon is universal, happening simultaneously worldwide, making the term "global village" quite accurate. World news keeps us informed about what is happening on the other side of the earth, and the internet links us together, however separate we may be geographically. So it might sound ironic that nationality has gained all the more value in these times, but it is true. Because there remains nothing else to make ourselves unique but what we preserve from time unknown. Korea has suffered many vicissitudes. Everyone knows that. She was destroyed almost to ashes. It was not a far cry to guess once that she had no future indeed. But she came to her feet again, and after that has not ever looked back. Korea now is one of the most industrialized countries, with its capital city, Seoul, one of the largest and most crowded megalopolises in the world. But it would be wrong to think that Korea has lost everything traditional, its legacy and heritage, during her colonial era, war, and industrialization, because much remains. Korea is a beautiful country. The natural environment is beautiful and so are the people who work hard and make their lives here. The traces of the ancestors who made this land their home such a long time ago have not disappeared; the link remains strong as their descendents continue to live on the same land today using one common language, finding pride and dignity in the continuation of their history and culture. The Beauty of Korea contains the beauty which could be found nowhere but in Korea through the marvelous works of photographer Suh Jai-sik who has an established reputation by his works for Korea's only multilingual pictorial magazine SEOUL
