South Korea is a republic located on the southern half of the Korean peninsula. It is a well developed country with a high standard of living. It is export-driven, producing many goods for other countries. It has a population of 50,004,441 and speaks Korean as an official language. It is bordered by North Korea to the north.

South Korea is visited semi-occasionally by the race. Almost all visits involve a visit to areas very close to the North Korean border. It was originally planned to be visited during the 15th season, but was not due to the H1N1 virus. Additionally, one South Korean team has competed on The Amazing Race Asia.
