The last few days, the market has been in fear with North Korea hitting the headlines.

The ETF called $EWY is an index fund for South Korea.

With the news of North Korea possibly firing missiles, this ETF continues to get a beating.

When you take a step back, North Korea would never go into a war with South Korea/US. Regardless of what the news tells you, it won't happen and once the world realizes, this EWY should bounce up strong.

Just like how people bought reliable company stocks during the housing crash in 2008-2009, it is a good time to start looking into investing in South Korea.

South Korea is a solid country. Their technology (Samsung, LG), cars (KIA, Hyundai), and now their travel business is booming.

Buy when everyone's running.

Buy EWY as it falls on the missile news next week.

Of course, if North Korea goes to war with South Korea, this investment idea fails.

The chances of that happening is very unlikely.

You know, it's almost spooky. The Central Intelligence Agency is said to have reported almost that same word for word assessment of North Korea about 2 weeks before they were overrunning Seoul and on their dash to the Southern coast ...the last time.

I'm thinking I'll hold a wait and see this time. Underestimating the North Koreans is like playing Russian Roulette. You may play it right for a whole lot of rounds ..but you'll only ever be wrong 1 time.

If North Korea attacks, you have a lot more to worry about than investments.

They won't. this is a great investment opportunity. People are running away, just keep buying up EWY.

Once media announces that the threat is not that serious.... profit and go buy yourself a new car.

Hope you guys bought into $EWY, because once nothing happens tomorrow, the South Korea shares will bounce upwards. Not sure if you should hold long term, but at least it's a for sure bet for tomorrow.
