Gangnam stress

South Koreans are known as some of the hardest-working and, thus, stressed-out citizens in the world. A fiercely-competitive society and long work hours inevitably result in high incidences of stress and suicide, as well as cases of death by overworking. Stressed citizens find relief in some peculiar ways. Some take part in their own funerals, to appreciate life; others spend a few days meditating in a temple, or take a break in solitary confinement in mock gaols.

Watch "Gangnam stress" on RTD website and on RT’s live feed. The time of the broadcast is available on RT’s schedule page.
