Hoping to unify the Koreas under a single Communist government, the North launched a surprise invasion of South Korea on June 25, 1950. In the following days, the UN Security Council condemned the attack and demanded an immediate withdrawal. Because Kim Il Sung hoped to join the two Koreas into on…e communist nation. To spread communism. (MORE)
After the Japanese surrender of WWII, the Americans and the Soviets occupied Korea. The Americans occupied southern part of Korea, while the Soviets entered Korea from their border and occupied the northern part of Korea. The Americans then invited Syngman Rhee back to the American-occupied Korea to… become President. Meanwhile the Soviets created a puppet government whose chairman is Kim Il-Sung (who will be future supreme dictator of North Korea very soon). Syngman Rhee then declare the establishment of the Republic of Korea (ROK) on August 15, 1948, while Kim Il-Sung declare the establishment of the Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK) on September 9, 1948. The occupations of both the Soviet and American armies led to the establishment of two separate governments. Both the DPRK and ROK do not recognize each other, and Kim Il-Sung devised a plan to "liberate the South" from the "Yankee imperialists". But his plan brought tragic warfare for North Korea as an international coalition led by the UN drove Kim Il-Sung off from North Korea until Chairman Mao came to help Kim retake the North. Both sides fought in stalemate position when finally the two sides go into an agreement of a ceasefire truce. And that's what led to how both North Korea and South Korea split off from each other.

The Demilitarized Zone. The DMZ. It's one of the heaviest guarded borders in the world.
To "Liberate" South Korea is the main reason for the North toattack. The North, which became communist after the Koreanpeninsula was freed from Japanese rule, wanted South Korea tobecome communist as well.
One BIG thing is that North Korea has a dictator, someone wwho forces things, and South Korea has more freedoms and has a President.. Mainly, South Korea has more freedom than North Korea.
North Korea's capital is P'yongyang . South Korea's capital is Seoul. When Korea was united during the Koryo Dynasty (919-1394), the capital was Songdo (also Gaegyeong ), which is now called Kaesong and is controlled by North Korea.
The 38th parallel is referred as the separation point between North and South Korea. it is also called the demilitarized zone
There are 25 million people in North Korea. And there are 50 million people in South Korea. In total there are 75 million people.
Like in Vietnam, North and South had different opinion about government. North Korea is currently a communist country and South Korea is currently a democracy.
Because South Korea was a democratic country, but North Korea was a communist country so they started to go separate ways
No. Definitely not. It was North Korea who invaded South Korea onJune 25, 1950. Unfortunately, North Korean propaganda continues to put forward theridiculous message that they were attacked by South Korea andtortures and/or kills those in its borders who say otherwise.
no, about that question, there was war that cause by N. Korea, but not by South. South Korea wanting to get more peace between north and South Korea.
Depends, which one are you talking about, the recent one or the Korean war one? Well the Korean war one was because Kim Jong wanted the South Korea to reunite with North Korea with North Korea as the leader and the recent bombardment of South Korea's island was because north Korea said they felt "th…reatened" when the south Koreans did a live military drill near the borders (MORE)
They used to be one country, but at one point, Japan attacked Korea and ruled over it. After the Japanese left, Korea was very poor. Some people felt they would be better off with communism, and they set up a communist regime in the north. The South became a democracy. So They have the same cultur…es and language, but very different government types. (MORE)
South Korea did not invade North Korea. North Korea invaded South Korea. The reason why North Korea invaded South Korea is because they both had different opinions. North Korea thinks that being a democratic country is fair however South Korea thinks that republic is more equal. Both presidents disa…greed each other. But the point is, the North Koreans were scared to get pulled by South Koreans' opinions, so they always attacked and the South Koreans always defended from it. (MORE)
I'm South Korean :). Just to let you know, im not going to state my opinions about North Korea. First, South Korea wasn't invaded by North Korea. It was just one Korea and they weren't divided yet. Before splitting, the Koreans were controlled by the Japanese. After winning the war with the Japanes…e, the Koreans had another problem. The problem was that Koreans had different belief. The different belief caused them the separate along with the leaders. The South Koreans were Christian and North Koreans were Buddhist. The different belief among the Koreans just got them separated.

Answer 1 The history of North Korea formally begins with the establishmentof the Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK) in 1948. In the aftermath of the Japanese occupation of Korea which endedwith Japan's defeat in World War II in 1945, Korea was divided atthe 38th parallel in accordance wi…th a United Nations arrangement,to be administered by the Soviet Union in the north and the UnitedStates in the south. The Soviets and Americans were unable to agreeon the implementation of Joint Trusteeship over Korea. This led in1948 to the establishment of separate governments, each claiming tobe the legitimate government of all of Korea. Answer 2 in short, north Korea which is contiguous to the land of china wanta communist government while south Korean want a democraticgovernment. Answer 3 Stated simply, and in good grammar; When Japan left Korea afterWWII, the monarchy was dissolved. New governments had to be formed,and with the US occupying South Korea, and Russia occupying NorthKorea, the influence of the occupying countries rubbed off of theiroccupants. Answer 4 The short answer is because there was a shift in ideology,particularly in the northern part of Korea, after the end of WWII.The country started moving towards overt Communism, which theUnited States saw as a serious threat to US interests and security.The United Nations, with the USSR and China abstaining, voted tosend in Allied troops to stop the spread of Communism. This was theKorean War. The war effectively ended in a draw, with a peacetreaty being signed that separated Korea into North Korea(communist by name, although not following true communistprinciples any more) and South Korea (democracy).

First, north Korea is in the north and south Korea is in the south of Korea(obviously!!!!).. Secondly, in South Korea we can go out and in of the country very easly but North Korea can't go out of the land because they don't want South Koreans of other people to come in their country so you have t…o risk your life to go in and out of there. Thirdly, South Korea is really good at using computers and have lot's of intelligent people such as in the UN we have a person who is a UN Secretary-General also, we have a people who do sports and there is a girl called Kim-Yuna she is really good at ice- figure skating and made world records and almost every place she went she wined gold medals , there is a football/soocer player who is our Korean team captin of football/soccer he also plays at the Manchester united etc... there are lot's of more people than this. But in North Korea there really aren't people really good at something. Lastly, South Korea have a famous companies such as Samsung, LG, Hyundai etc.... some people think it's not Korea's comppany but it is !!!! . (MORE)
North Korea attacked South Korea in the Korean war and Korea has been separated in 2 countries from then! North Korea is a Communist, and South Korea is a anti-communist like North America.
The main similarities:They are both on the same peninsula , speak the same language (albeit with regional accents), and use the same money (but in north Korea its the north Korean won). Other than that, the two countries are drastically different.
It is complicated. The war ended almost 60 years ago, but they never signed a peace treaty; so technically they are still at war.
North and South Korea are not at war. There is a peace treaty extant between these two countries. But it should be noted that both sides are very uneasy neighbors. Further, the North Koreans are edgy to the point of pushing the South Koreans on a semi-regular basis.
Before WWII, North and South Korea were united as one country; they were just Korea. Part of Korea, the south, wanted to break apart and be independent because they wanted to become democratic, while the rest wanted one communist country. They broke into civil war, and the US and UN jumped on the so…uth's side and the USSR helped the north. It's still basically a stalemate between North and South Korea; which is why we still have troops there on the 36 Parallel. (MORE)
The benefits the south gets from the USA from 1950 till now is one of the main reason why thy more likely to ruin there neighbors gifts Russia ideally would gain from this war seeing that it supplies the north with all types of weapons.
I'm Korean myself south Korea has a president while north Korea has a dictator or they don't have a democrocy
because they want to take whole Korean peninsula to make communist. but they failed. now they are one of the poorest country in the world
North Korea bombed south Korea on 23 nov.2010. it was a big story about how and why they did this because they wanted there land that's why
The countries did start out as one. The division of Korea occured when the aftermath of Worls War II left the northern part of Korea under Soviet occupation and the south under the occupation of the other allied countries. This separated Korea, making two different countries. Soon Soviet-ruled Nor…th Korea invaded South Korea, resulting in the Korean War. Many were killed, and the countries have remained divided ever since. (MORE)
North and South Korea didn't agree in the same governing plan. South Korea tried to cooperate with North America but North America refused and they split. Now, North Korea plans to attack South Korea and make it into one government for themselves.
It's because the two Korea(s) (North and South) are still in war technically because the Korean war did not with a treaty but simply an armistice (ceasefire). The recent attack was because the North felt threatened (in my perspective) of the military drills conducted by the South.
Well lately there have been threats from north korea, a disturbance with missiles, and the death of Kim Jung Ill (NK's leader) and lets just say, the north doesn't like the south...
They were the same country until 1945 with the same people speaking the same language.
South Korea is democratic. It has a president, Lee Myung Bak. North Korea had a dictator, Kim Jong Il, but he died.
The north wanted to have a different government than the south. So they broke up into two separate countries.
North Korea and South Korea are divided into a ceasefire line. This line made after Korean war.
That is not an actually answerable question. I will assume that you are asking where the Koreas are. The Koreas are to the Northeast of China and to the Southeast of Russia. South Korea is only separated by a small portion of the Pacific Ocean from the islands of Japan.
South Korea is Supported by : USA + China + Japan North Korea is Supported by : Russia + China !
In The past they attacked each other ! but now they didn't bombed ! but soon the war will come between them
North Korea invaded South Korea. Exactly, the Korean war started byNorth Korean army's attack to the 38th parallel (a line of latitudeused to divide the Korean Peninsula) at about 4AM on June 25, 1950. However, North Korean propaganda claims that South Korea attackedfirst. (No country outside of No…rth Korea agrees with this view.) (MORE)
North Korea has an area of 120,540 km 2 or 46,528 sq mi while South Korea has an area of 100,210 km 2 or 38,691 sq mi - so North Korea has a larger land area. The population of North Korea is about 24,051,218 . The population of South Korea is about 48,875,000. So South Korea is larger in terms …of population. North Korea, of course, has a larger military establishment than South Korea. (MORE)
South Korea is half of earth big and north Korea is like my toilet size.
After WWII Russia and the US divided it by the 38th parallel. North Korea being Communist and South Korea being Democratic.
Of course south and North Korea have cars. South Korea's actually behind LG and Samsung! However, North Korea has Russian-made cars---no Hyundais or Toyotas in that country.
No South Korea didn't envade North Korea. South and North splid up because of the alliance between North America and Russia was not good. North Korea is the one who attacks first all the time. We never started first. North Korea's ruler does not feed his citizens he uses the money for nuclear explos…ions. (MORE)
Ban Ki Moon is from South Korea. Honestly, do you think they would make a North Korean a secretary general of UN?
north korea supported a communist government with support from the soviets. south korea supported a democratic system with american support
North Korea is 46,528 square miles (120,540 square kilometers), and has a population of roughly 24 Million. South Korea is 38,691 square miles (100,210 square kilometers) and has a population of close to 59 Million..
Yes. South Korea is close to North because they are on on the same peninsula. The Korean Peninsula.
The division was made in 1945, but it wasn't formalized into two separate countries until 1948..
No their totally against each other North Korea threatens to destroy South Korea and their hard work.
