Chevrolet recently has sported its new theme “Find New Roads” and it seems that they took it quite literally.

Korean imports are taking the world by storm, from electronics, telenovelas, food, pop stars and Korean-made cars. In a short time, they have become one of the largest players in the global arena of car manufacturing.
