According to South Korea's tourism body, the number of visitors to the country fell by more than 10% in the past months.

North Korea has carried out four missile tests over the past few weeks, heightening tensions on the Korean peninsula.

Heavy sanctions have been unable to deter Pyongyang and its nuclear weapons programme and aggressive rhetoric is now slowly starting to take a toll on South Korea's economy.

The tensions have been putting off tourists and creating difficulties for South Korean companies with a global clientele.
