Making more information readily available to cater to the needs of the South Korean people is what President Park Geun-hye sees as a crucial step towards achieving public happiness.
On Wednesday, President Park pledged to upgrade her administration's services for the people, through the so-called "Government 3.oh," a term derived from computer jargon.
Here's what the president said.
"Government 3.0 means an all-out paradigm shift beyond a simple release of information. It means it will change the way the government works from an administration-centered manner to a people-centered one."
The government plans to release various administrative information to the public, increasing the amount nearly three-fold over the next five years.
Officials believe the new plan will create 150-thousand jobs.
But some critics question the practicality of the initiative citing the required budget of more than two trillion won, or roughly 1.8 billion U.S. dollars.
