The world traditionally knows Korea as the land of the morning calm, a land that is startlingly picturesque, a land that is home to welcoming people who worship nature and preserve the traditions of their ancient culture. Today, Korea is known as the "Asian tiger". A spring that had been pressured first by its own self-isolation and then by foreign occupation, has now uncoiled. In the early 1950s, Korea was poor and laid waste by war. Over the span of the lifetime of a single generation, it has become a highly developed state whose GDP grew 225 times over fifty years. This is not a traditional memoir of a diplomat, it doesn't dwell minutely on the author's postings and on the routine of the Russian Ministry of Foreign Affairs, which are of interest for fellow diplomats only. This book is a lively narration of an observant Russian person who has his own take on the Republic of Korea, Russia's next door neighbor in the Far East, with a lot of common business with Russia. This book is about those elements of South Korean life that could be borrowed by other countries. It is about those people the author met in Seoul. It is also about how the author understands the ways and means for settling the Korean issue which is one of the hottest international issues of today.
