Noun

Pronunciation

Definition (meaning)

Republic of Samsung.

This word is South Korea's nickname.

In Korea, Samsung's influence is too much powerful and Korean society depends on this influence. For instance, Samsung makes 25% of Korea's GDP and they do their businesses on various field such as electronics, construction, securities, foods, clothes, amusement park, military weapons, etc. So, Samsung has even made illegal things based on that superior position but they often were not punished. Many Koreans worry that unfair things related to Samsung and some people claim “if Samsung failed, Korea would fail. So we have to reduce their influence so that we can escape from risk Samsung made.

e.g. 삼성공화국에서는 삼성만 잘나간다.
