Every year Korea is undergoing worse air pollution and it has an influence on life styles and a lot of people. I have never seen or experienced such a horrible air-pollution in Korea since yesterday, 24 March, 2018 and today are of the two worst days with atmosphere. The origin of this problem is micro-dust coming from China through the west sea Korea.

Check the pictures and videos I have captured.

When you see the atmosphere, it looks and feels a lot worse. Micro-dust is said to cause cancer. It is also indicated that it affect hormones, blood, blood pressure, your skin and more so women could go through the change of their periods. Babies and pregnant women are susceptible and vulnerable to this condition. Basically all people living in Korea are experiencing a big problem. Korea needs a solution to this.
