South Korea with Alexander Armstrong
Actor and presenter Alexander Armstrong embarks on an epic journey across one of the most influential countries on earth – South Korea. It’s emerged from the ashes of a terrible twentieth century – Japanese occupation, war, and dictatorship to be the 10th biggest economy in the world.
Along with being a manufacturing powerhouse, Korea is famed for its cultural exports. K-Pop, K-Drama, K-everything. Where would we be without Squid Game, Korean BBQ and BTS?
Alexander hits the streets of Seoul and Busan to find out, and also takes in the splendours of Korean’s favourite holiday playground, Jeju island, for a surreal blend of volcanic beaches, shamanistic rituals and fascinating foods on an epic adventure!
