From the early 1960s until the crisis of 1997-1998, Korea’s economic growth has been the result of an accumulation of exceptional capital mainly driven by a financial system dominated by the banking sector and tightly controlled by the government. The financial crisis of 1998 reduced the pace of the growth of the South Korean economy. Nevertheless, due to its own approach, the Korean economy faced successfully with this economic challenge. Some entities also became richer due to the crisis.
