It's a pattern that many Koreans won't like to hear, but a new study shows that people here work the second longest hours in the OECD.
Koreans worked an average of 2,1-hundred-63 hours last year-- that's about 45 hours a week falling second only to Mexico.
From the year 2000 to 2007, Korea actually ranked number one until being overtaken by Mexico in 2008.
The country with the least number of working hours is the Netherlands with under 30 hours a week.
