The self-employed or unpaid family workers make up around 25 percent of South Korea’s entire workforce.

Data released by the OECD and Statistics Korea on Monday says roughly 6.7 million people in the country were self-employed or worked at a family business without pay.

The proportion of the workforce made up by those workers in South Korea is the eighth highest out of 35 OECD members.

Colombia ranked first with around 50 percent, followed by Brazil and Greece.
