Tonight | South Korea with Alexander Armstrong on SBS and SBS on Demand

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 tenth 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!

Series One, Episode One:

Alexander kicks off his epic Korean adventure in Gangnam, the fabled district in Seoul immortalised by Psy’s Gangnam Style video, still the most viewed song on YouTube. Gangnam is where the flash harry’s like to hang out, purring down the main drag in their supercars, serenaded by the booming beats of the 24-hour stores and bars. Xander soaks up life on the (very expensive) street before calling it a night.
