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 one communist nation. To spread communism.
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 b…order 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.
Probably never, but North Korea will have to eventually open up its borders.
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 Kore…a thinks that being a democratic country is fair however South Korea thinks that republic is more equal. Both presidents disagreed 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.
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 occup…ation of Korea which endedwith Japan's defeat in World War II in 1945, Korea was divided atthe 38th parallel in accordance with 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 Nort…h 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 to 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 !!!! .
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.

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 south'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.
Because of the wall that the USA had built between their two countries.
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 und…er the occupation of the other allied countries. This separated Korea, making two different countries. Soon Soviet-ruled North Korea invaded South Korea, resulting in the Korean War. Many were killed, and the countries have remained divided ever since.

However, North Korean propaganda claims that South Korea attackedfirst. (No country outside of North Korea agrees with this view.)
