ABSTRACT

Korea and Paraguay are two very different nations, each with rich culture and traditions. Each has its own history and way of seeing and comprehending reality. If we were to make comparisons of the peoples of these two countries, cultural differences would arise very openly, since here we come face to face with two worlds that function in different ways. As human beings that they are there are many traits that identify both societies, of course, but there is bound to be an enormous amount of cultural aspects that make them interestingly different. Those differences can motivate very easy and quick opinions, such as “They’re so lazy!” or “They don’t know how to enjoy life!”, one group judging the other just by what it is seen and without taking into consideration the numerous factors that shape the mind and actions of the other group and make that particular society be the way it is. It is only within a spirit of cultural empathy that the most striking differences can be accepted and tolerated, when each group tries to put itself in the place of the other and experience life from the other’s perspective.
