Foreign Invasion

Looks like Mr. Trump and some American corporations are invading S. Korea. I found this interesting because it seems that S. Korea is very quickly becoming globalized and beggining to drop the fear of foreigners.

It would be interesting to speak to a Korean about this. While it is reasonable to think that deep-rooted xenophobia might still exist culturally, the truth is that those in the ROK government and commercial sector see the value in international commerce, at the very least as a method of "keeping up with the times."
"Invasion" might be too strong of a word for the present, considering that Japan and western powers succeeded in opening Korea economically a century ago.
