Marriages in South Korea are down for the second year in a row. The average age of men getting married is up to 32.2 and 29.6 for women. A total of 26,000 people were married in Korea last year. The number of mixed weddings between Koreans and foreigners is also down for the third year in a row .
Of the 50 millions residents of South Korea, 1.4 million are foreign workers. The number has dramatically increased in recent years as Korean companies seek highly skilled international workers. The process to obtain a working visa has also been simplified since it moved online.
