South Korea Seeks Skilled Foreigners

The Republic of Korea has long been known as a homogenous country, but due to struggles with a labor shortage and an aging society, the nation has been actively allowing foreigners to work and settle in the country since early 2000. It even went as far as taking the step to revise laws to allow foreign nationals to become South Korean citizens. Many see such policies as a positive move for the country's future but others strongly oppose them. This episode of Asia Insight shows how South Korea is gearing up for change to become a multi-cultural society.
