    Well-made network infrastructure

    Korean main industry/Korea's main industry/The main industry of Korea is IT business. Korea has the fastest internet speed in the world. Well-made network infrastructure has brought about many changes in the Korean life style.

    1. Which is the best choice in the first underlined?
    2. Is the second underlined part correct?

    Re: Well-made network infrastructure

    1. I'd use "Korea's main industry". I'd remove "business".
    2. You need an article at the beginning of the third sentence.

    We usually refer to "internet speeds" - it is unlikely that everyone in the country gets the same speed. "lifestyle" is just one word.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    For 1, when do you use A of B and B's A respectively?

    Re: Well-made network infrastructure

    I'm never keen on "the XXX of XXX" when a standard possessive (apostrophe + s) will do. If you want to start with "the main industry", I'd follow it with "in Korea".

    Re: Well-made network infrastructure

    Korea's main industry is IT? It isn't cars? Or cellphones?
