In the years following the terrorist attack on Kim Il-sung Square in Pyeongyang on August 15th, 2015, and with the threat of war, Korea suffered from a recession worse than the 1998 IMF crisis. But after new products using applied technology from the alien spacecraft came out into the world, the economy began to rise in 2017 and an economic boom began. The economic growth rate rose by 41%, and the GDP hit 2.69 billion dollars, reaching the 6th highest in the world just behind the United Kingdom.
The growth rate was unimaginably fast considering the population ratio, which had doubled since the previous year. The western nations began to be wary of Korea and became unsure if Korea was an enemy or ally. The U.S, China, and Japan all made movements to put economic pressure towards Korea.
