  1. This chart is highly unprofessional due to the choice of completely excluding ROK’s major importer and exporter, namely the EU. Besides calling it “other” and not displaying the actual major countries of trade is furthermore highly dismissive.

    Charts and diagrams are only the truth if represented properly. Do it the wrong way, and it might as well be a lie.

    I understand your point.Unfortunately the source of my above chart is The Wall Street Journal. They represented SK’s trade partners this way. Thanks.
