Nail Bars See Sharp Growth

The clamor for manicures shows no signs of waning, and the number of nail bars has doubled in just two years.

According to the Korean Nail Technicians Association, there were 6,000 nail bars in Korea in 2015, but the number shot up to 12,000 last year.

The nail care and nail art industry is estimated to be worth W300 billion a year and employs 100,000 people (US$1=W1,121).

In a recession, relatively inexpensive makeup products such as a lipstick often become popular as they can make a big difference without costing a fortune. That clearly applies to nail care.

Korea's Growth Could Flatline Due to Aging Population

Korea's economic growth could flatline completely if the country fails to take adequate steps to deal with its aging population, according to a study the Bank of Korea released Thursday.

The study warns that Korea could then see its economy shrink within the next 30 years if the low birthrate continues.

The BOK said if the rate of economic participation by age group remains unchanged and labor productivity declines, average annual growth will fall to half the present level within 10 years.

Putting the wild and fun energy of GOT7 aside, this new album shows the growth theyve experienced during those five years. They participated in composing and writing the lyrics for all eight songs in the album.
