Later WWII ended and the Japanese were forced out of the peninsula. After the occupation, two groups of people were on the peninsula. One group wanted to redistribute the wealth and power, but the other group wanted to keep wealth and power as it is. Soon the division increased further during the Cold War. The Cold war caused Korea to split North and South. The North became a communist country with Kim Il-Sung as their leader. The South became a capitalist country with Syungman Rhee as their leader. Soon after the Cold War the Korean War started. Kim Il-Sung wanted all of Korea to be united once more under communist power. He invaded South Korea and started the Korean War. The war ended on the 38th parallel. Just like how it started. After the war North Korea was able to have a better economy than South Korea. North Korea used the Juche system. They relied on themselves for everything. Later North Korea’s economy began to plummet and South Korea’s economy began to boom. South Korea used the capitalist system. It was much different from North Korea’s Communist and Juche System. South Korea’s boom was, because of the help from Hallyu, also know as the Korean Wave or Korean exports. Now South Korea is welcomed much more
North Korea’s economy is very different then the United States’ economy. Even though one dollar in American money doesn’t seem much to us Americans, it is worth nine-hundred dollars in their currency. North Korea’s main sources of income are military products, machine building, electrical power, chemicals, mining, metallurgy, textiles, food processing and tourism. North Korea’s overall condition of the economy is not good.
The division of Korea into South Korea and North Korea was the result of the 1945 Allied victory in World War II, leaving the countries in disagreement with a 2.5 mile gap separating the countries. Following this, the Korean War occurred between North and South Korea, in which a United Nations force led by the United States of America fought for the South, and China fought for the North, making the USA an instant enemy of North Korea. In July 1953, the Korean War came to an end.
The Korean War begun far before North Korea had launched their first assault upon South Korea. Nearing of the end of the Second World War, the Korean Peninsula had been under Japanese control. Soon enough it was liberated by both American and Soviet forces, the Soviets occupying the country north of the 38th Parallel, and the Americans south of it. After the war, neither the Koreans, Soviets, nor the Americans could agree on the country's government. This resulted in the foundation of the Republic of Korea (ROK) in the south and the Democratic People's Republic of Korea in the north (Ohn Chang-Il, 23). The fact that neither the States nor the Soviets were willing to compromise on anything was a prime factor in the separation of the Korean Peninsula.
Australia is a Democratic Country, which means that people are in power and have control over the government. In this type of government people’s views and opinions are highly considered by the government and an equal and stable administration can be achieved. ( Asia-Pacific Economics Blog, 2014). The people can choose and can voice in their opinion regarding Medicare and any other complaints they have against the system, which helps the government, improve the system. Comparing the political characteristics to North Korea, the Australian citizens have more
Following the Korean War and the rebuilding of their societies, both North Korea and South Korea’s economies have depreciated and fluctuated. With their different economic systems, one using the military and the other using trade, they both have received different results.
In 1945, North Korea immediately began to put in place territorial and political reforms. For territorial reforms, Korea was split into two territories-the North. These two separated countries were split by the 38th parallel, which was the name for the border.
In an effort to avoid a long-term decision regarding Korea's future, the United States and the Soviet Union agreed to divide Korea temporarily along the 38th parallel, a latitudinal line that bisected the country. United States put the problem of Korean independence before the United Nations. A United Nations Commission decided to hold elections in Korea. The communists in North Korea refused to allow the election. The communists in South Korea boycotted it. The government in South Korea was formed by the anti-communist Syngman Rhee called the Republic of Korea (ROK). In 1946, Kim II Sung organized a communist government in the north called the Democratic People's Republic. Each government hoped to reunify the country under its own rule.
Korea, formally a Japanese possession, had been divided into two divisions, the north and south. This division was supposed to be only temporary after World War II. In southern Korea the U.S. forces accepted the surrender of the Japanese after the War, but the Soviet forces controlling Northern Korea did not, therefore this division of Korea stayed permanent. The Soviet Union continued to assist the northern division of Korea and assisted in setting up their government into a communist society while the southern division assisted with finances and military forces by the United States. After World War II the North division of Korea was supported by the Soviet Union and the Southern division of Korea was supported by the U.S.
Korea had been given to america almost by accident. The peninsula was part of the japanese empire, but after World War II the Americans and Soviets decided it should be split into two pieces, along the 38th parallel. America occupied South Korea and the Soviets occupied North Korea. Even though the 38th parallel was expose to keep North Korea out of the south, and the south out of the north, the two dictators both still kept going into each other's land. The two dictators were anti-communist dictator Syngman Rhee which quite liked the americans support, and communist dictator Kim Il Sung which enjoyed the slightly more enthusiastic support of the soviets.
Like many geopolitical changes in the world, the division of North and South Korea was the result of a war. The Korean War took place from 1950 to 1953. Although the Korean War was not the reason for the division, it just made the split more permanent. The Cold War, however, had more to do with the split. The Cold War was an ideological war primarily between the United States, which represented capitalism, and the Soviet Union, which represented communism, through proxy wars (Soviet War in Afghanistan, Vietnam War, and Korean War).
An impoverished country of more than twenty five million people, North Korea, also known as the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea (DPRK) was founded by the revolutionary leader Kim IL Sung after the end of World War II. North Korea began as an independent kingdom for much of its long history. Both North and South Korea were under Japanese control in 1905 until the country was split after the end of World War II. Located in eastern Asia in the northern half of the Korean Peninsula, bordering the Korea Bay and the Sea of Japan, North Korea sits in a strategic location bordering China, Russia, and South Korea. North Korea is slightly larger than the state of Virginia, but slightly smaller than the state of Mississippi and is mostly comprised of large mountains and steep hills separated
The country of Korea has been in turmoil for centuries and was founded on its turmoil of being unified and separated. Several objects stand in the way of them being unified once more the DPRK prefers communism while the ROK prefers Democracy both sides want to be united but can’t due to different morals, beliefs, and political views. And the history of Korea hasn’t always been pleasant due to wars and the attempted colonization of Korea by the Japanese.
Each and every country has a different form of government, as there are also various forms of governments’ to choose from. From a democratic government to which the United States has in place, to a communist government in which North Korea practices. There are plenty of pros and cons to each form of government and how the country is being overlooked. I have researched North Korea and I will be talking about their country and their government. Korea is located in the northeastern region of the Asian continent.
South Korea is one of the most dynamic countries in the world, South Korea has emerged from a chaotic history, and has rightfully ascended the ladder to become a world power. Bordering North Korea in the south and separated from China and Japan by the Sea of Japan, Yellow Sea and Korea Strait, South Korea is an active participant in what is one of Asia’s most historically volatile areas
