South Korea: The Catholic Church's Asian Tiger
Issued on: Modified:
We head to South Korea, where Pope Francis has just wrapped up a five-day visit. A pope hadn't set foot in the country for a quarter of a century. Yet Catholicism is thriving in South Korea, with the number of Catholics there tripling in the last three decades. France 24's Marie Linton and Guillaume Bression report on some of the reasons behind the Church's success.
