South Korea Great Reset Retirement-3

ADVANCE FOR DECEMBER 28, 2013 -- In this Dec. 23, 2013 photo, Yoo Tae-we, 47, a South Korean manager of a trading company that imports semiconductor components, works as a portrait of his son, Yoo Shi-young, is displayed at his office in Busan, South Korea. The country's public pensions pay an average of just $744 a month. South Korea has the rich world's highest poverty rate for the elderly. It has one of the world's the highest suicide rate for the aged, too. Yoo doesn't expect his son to support him as and his siblings did their parents. "We have to prepare for our own futures rather than depending on our children," he says. (AP Photo/Ahn Young-joon)
