Ticket is a film directed by Im Kwon-taek in 1985. It depicts the sometimes brutal life of the Korean tabang girls. Tabangs are coffee houses in Korea and many offer outcall services in which the girls deliver coffee to customers, and sometimes extra sexual services for a price termed a "ticket". The price of the ticket is W25,000 which the customer pays to the proprietor of the tabang. The customer and the girl usually negotiate for extra services. Sometimes the customer will take the girl to a norae-bang (노래방) just to sing. At other times the customer may just enjoy the company of the young lady at a meal in a restaurant. The extra meal and or the norae-bang of course are paid for by the customer. [1]

Price discrimination pricing strategy of offering similar products at different prices according to buyers willingness to pay

Price discrimination is a microeconomic pricing strategy where identical or largely similar goods or services are transacted at different prices by the same provider in different markets. Price discrimination is distinguished from product differentiation by the more substantial difference in production cost for the differently priced products involved in the latter strategy. Price differentiation essentially relies on the variation in the customers' willingness to pay and in the elasticity of their demand. Price discrimination, very differently, relies on monopoly power, including market share, product uniqueness, sole pricing power, etc. Monopoly power held by sellers does not benefit consumers. All prices under price discrimination are higher than the equilibrium price, which is the uniform price paid by everyone in a perfectly-competitive market.

Culture of South Korea Culture of an area

The contemporary culture of South Korea developed from the traditional culture of Korea which was prevalent in the early Korean nomadic tribes. By maintaining thousands of years of ancient Korean culture, with influence from ancient Chinese culture, South Korea split on its own path of cultural development away from North Korean culture since the division of Korea in 1948. The industrialization, urbanization and westernization of South Korea, especially Seoul, have brought many changes to the way Korean people live. Changing economics and lifestyles have led to a concentration of population in major cities, with multi-generational households separating into nuclear family living arrangements. Today, many Korean cultural elements, especially popular culture, have spread across the globe and have become some of the most prominent cultural forces in the world.
