 The Culture GPS is really interesting to me. This is because I can confirm the facts of a cultural phenomenon in the figure. The rate which I thought only of the head figures out with the bar chart. Moreover, Some ratio is absolutely different with my expectation or some of them fit well. For example, I anticipate that the figure of Masculinity shows high in South Korea however, actually it is witnessed low. I thought characteristics of South Korea society much close to Masculinity than Femininity even that is false. It means that observers can easily find faculty with the exact rate and compare with other countries directly without prejudge. Furthermore, designers can simply understand the remarkable features of each country. It helps to create good design stuff which bases on cultural trend. 

 As a brief illustration, If you design some camping tools for Korean, it is much better to the make up the kits for families than a single person. South Korea shows low Individualism than the UK. It shows that most of Koreans did not prefer to spend time alone regularly. However, the high rate of Individualism involves the information which Britains usually want to have their own time. Therefore, designers should consider creating tools for each country’s independence.

This chart shows the Culture GPS of China and South Korea. There are many similarities between China and South Korea than The UK and South Korea. The main reason for that China and Korea is both eastern cultures and they have share many historical relationships from the long time ago. I compare this chart with my team in the class, and Chinese friend told me about their significant cultural characteristic. China shows high Power distance because of the government and Korea also quite high in the same area. As a result, I learn the new fact that in China Google, Instagram, and much other social application are prohibited. It means that designers should consider the special political situation when they develop a social app for Chinese.

In additionally, Korea became free from autocracy in recent year, we still affect fairly by the government and the huge company. Thus, Many Koreans feel pressure to be successful because our policy wants to make the public produce hard for a development of the country. That is why the figure of Uncertainty Avoidance shows highly in South Korea. We are educated to have a safe job and become faithful of studying. As a result, We raised a lot of talented people in math, education, economy, and a medical area in a short time. However, we lack creativity, artist, musician, and inventors. Therefore, I can verify this feature of Korean by the chart, should consider the phenomenon when I approach the project. For instance, I can make a new study guideline for all students in western and eastern to combine the studying method of Korean education which is good for memorizing and the UK style studying which is an effective way of thinking creatively.
