Bringing Korean culture to America could have important implications for our society, as the ancient Eastern culture has some philosophical solutions to problems that plague the West.
For example, there is a concept in Korean culture known as han-se-gye, which describes a time when the world will unite in harmony. The phrase literally means "one world," and is a favorite of the philosopher and personal growth expert Ilchi Lee.
Given the high level of violence experienced in American society, the concept of han-se-gye may never have been more important. Street shootings are a regular occurrence in the nation's cities, the most popular TV shows often involve violence and our political culture seems to reward conflict over cooperation.
However, Lee says that understanding the importance of uniting under a common cause and furthering peace efforts could put an end to all this and lead to a much more harmonious planet. This is why it is so important for Western cultures to learn from their Eastern neighbors and put the best of their ideas to work.
