South Korea has been one of the most successful economies over the last 20-30 years. Even the Asian crisis could not stop the South Korean economy from growing at around 5% p.a. since 1990.
The countries economic position compared to Japan is very healthy, Debt/GDP is only 30%, the Government currently runs a surplus and the current account is of course positive.
Korean stock market: There are almost 2000 stocks traded on this market (included some giants like Samsung electronics and Hyundai)
