Oh sorry. South Korea's industry is massively contributing to poor air quality.

I follow the news from South Korea every day. It is said that the air quality is very bad, because the dirty air from China's industry comes to South Korea. People wear breathing masks, the big cities are like foggy.

The air quality in South Korea is very bad. People living here will all have their longterm health negatively affected by this. Unfortunately, there isn't much civic or political will to make the necessary changes to improve things significantly. Perhaps more awareness is the first step.
