SEOUL — In a country known for its collective “balli balli,” or “hurry, hurry” mantra, the importance of speed extends to many aspects of life in South Korea. From fast fashion to its subways and express transport systems, fast-food culture to condensed education programs, getting things done quickly and efficiently is often seen as a virtue in Korean society. Unsurprisingly, this notion applies equally to the nation’s fast-growing tech industry.
For 12 years, South Korea has continued to rank first in the world as the country with the fastest Internet speed. The nation is also home to a tech-savvy, highly wired society: In 2016, 92.7 percent of the population was reported to be Internet users.
