Yes, North Korea and South Korea are two different countries.
Korea was splited in 1948; at that time it was split into South Korea and North Korea. Resulting in the korean war to this very day... their technically still against each other.
They all were separated into two separate parts. Korea(North- South) Vietnam(North-South) Germany(East-West) OR A+ - They have all been divided by communism All three have been split into two countries in their history. Germany has been reunited, as has Vietnam, but Korea is still split.
Korea was split into North and South after the Korean War, the North having a Communist government and the South a democratic government. This was done after the signing of the armistice (not to be confused with a peace treaty which has never been signed...therefore the two countries are still technically at war) to stop the fighting.. so, basically it was cuz they had a war.
South Korea is a country because at one point both North and South Korea were once Korea. The Korean war (1950-1953) resulted in the split. They both signed a treaty but they have major defences set up at the border. It is nearly impossible to escape from North to South (South- North) Korea. Out of what I know only one person has managed to escape to South Korea, a few has escaped from North Korea… Read More
North Korea is communist, and South Korea is democratic. The Korean War had ended in a stalemate (when neither side gets a victory) so they remained split apart, and with different governments.
It wasn't . There is still North Korea and South Korea .South Korea is thriving, while North Korea has many people doing without bare necessities. The US still maintains a significant military prescence in South Korea to protect them .
It's in Asia, right below North Korea. North Korea and South Korea is separated because of a war that happened long ago. There still are many families that are separated from each other. <- North Korea and South Korea <- South Korea
North Korea failed to conquer South Korea. South Korea (ROK) still exists today, so ROK won. Had the North conquered the South, they would've won. Which occurred in the Vietnam War...the North conquered the South and won the war.
Communist North Korea and Free South Korea are still separated by the 38th Parallel signed during the Armistice in 1953. The US still maintains military forces in South Korea.
No, North Korea is a communist nation.
north korea still controls north of the 38th paralull and south korea still controls south of the 38th paralell
Yes it still is
No just North Korea and South Korea is still non communist
South Korea was never a communist government; North Korea, however, remains communist.
Presumably so, as North Korea is a Communist state and not a Republic ___________________________________________________________________ Republic of Korea is the official name of South Korea and North Korea is referred as Democratic People's Republic of Korea North Korea is still a republic because it is called the Democratic (yeah right) REPUBLIC of Korea
NO South Korea did not sign the armistice in 1953, therefore North and South Korea are still at war.
Yes. Its still there.
The armistice signed on July 27, 1953, formally ended the war in Korea. However, there was no winner. The country was divided into North Korea and South Korea, and in fact, the North Koreans still consider themselves at war with South Korea.
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… Read More
No. The two nations are technically still at war.
North and South Korea were divided (and still are) by the 38th Parallel North.
Yes, and No. South, and North Korea always tries to be in a good relationship. Often, the president of South Korea goes to visit North Korea to have a meeting, and to keep a good relationship with each other. After all, we used to be an one happy country before the war. South Korea sends many supplies to orth Korea to help them out.
State of War still exist. A Cease fire is in place.
They still are and have been since the end of World War 2.
South Korea South Korea has a far stronger economy and South Korea is a first-world country. In 2012, South Korea had a GDP of $1.62 trillion USD compared to North Korea at $40 million USD. This means that the South Korean economy produces over 40 times what the North Korean economy produces. South Korea also has a GDP growth rate that is consistently at least 1 percentage point higher than North Korea. This is basically… Read More
North Korea has recently declared that it is at war with South Korea. This is not really because of anything South Korea has done, but rather it is an attempt to pressure the international community which has recently enacted economic sanctions against North Korea, in an effort to discourage North Korea from pursuing its nuclear weapons program. North Korea cannot pretend to be at war with South Korea and still conduct business as usual with… Read More
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.
Is it true that north Korea and south Korea were unified into a single nation at the end of the war?
No and they are still seprate countries
Korea is divided into north (People's Democratic Republic of Korea) and south (Republic of Korea). Ireland is divided into the south (Republic of Ireland) and north (Northern Ireland - a British dependency).
Korea refers to the entire peninsula, which is currently made of two countries: North Korea and South Korea. However, most Koreans (from anywhere in the world) prefer to imagine their ancestral homeland (which used to be just one country) as one country and so they will call themselves Koreans and their ancestral homeland Korea even though this is technically inaccurate.
Yes they stand at the 38th parallel
No, since they are still separate countries, it is not added together No, South Korea got in the top 10, but North Korea hardly got any YAY! SOUTH KOREA RULZ! Since North Korea and South Korea are separate countries, the medals and things are not added together. South Korea was in the top 10's, but North Korea got hardly any medals. This is because North Korea is not developed and poor, so they don't get… Read More
The Korea war still affects us today. It affects us because our relationship with Korea is not a positive relationship. The Korea war also caused North Korea and South Korea to be at odds.
North Korea is not a country from the perspective of South Korea. It was officially recognized as a country when it entered the United Nations in 1992 along with the South. Japan still do not officially admit as a nation because it regards South Korea as the legitimate representative of Korean Peninsula.
In 1945, the Korean Peninsula was divided between a U.S. controlled South Korea and a Soviet controlled North Korea. In the late 1940s, the U.S. kept troops in South Korea but turned over the government to the South Koreans. The Soviets removed troops from North Korea but created a puppet government under the control of a ancestor of Kim Jong Il (they still gave weapons and equipment). As a result, North Korea got a communist… Read More
it's not that clear, but the thing is there is line that cross the Korea, which that thing made Korea into the half, and make into North and South. and that line the metal line thinggie is represent for rest, so we don't exactly know when we're going to do the war or not.
Not at all. There are still hostile actions provoked by North Korean military units at the demilitarized zone.
North and South Korea. They are still at war to this day.
no one gives a care at this moment
Yes, South Korea and North Korea can null and void the ceasefire between the two half's of the countries. North Korea is a very unstable country and they could break the ceasefire at anytime. A ceasefire is not a peace treaty; and can be violated by any party at any time. There are still a number of violent incidents that have occurred between North and South Korea since 1953, such as North Korean tunnelers into… Read More
The Korean War was ended by an Armistice. An Armistice is a truce. There was NO surrender on the part of either North or South Korea; the war is still ongoing. It is simply not "Hot" at the present (no shooting).
North Korea didn't collapse because they still have a strong army. When the Korean War had started, North Korea with the help of China had a lot of weapons. However, the fighting had stopped. NOT the war. They aren't fighting, but it's cold. North Korea shows off about their strength. Every year they have marches with soldiers and men. But now, South Korea is attracting many tourists and South Korea is a rich and well… Read More
Christianity and Buddhism are in South Korea. Even though Christians have been persecuted in North Korea, they still love God and even pray for Kim Jong Un's soul to awake to God and become Christian. Juche religion is in North Korea, but it should respect other faiths like Christianity.
south korea, free from the war prospered and is still prospering. North Korea is totaltarian communist, you do not want to vacation there, even if they would let you.
it didn't exactly end. it isn't really going on anymore, but North Korea and South Korea are still enemies.
The Communist North Koreans INVADED South Korea, and the US & UN pushed them back into North Korea...the war was to preserve the Republic of South Korea from communist conquests; the Republic of SOUTH Korea still exists today because of the success of the US/UN forces during the Korean War (1950-1953).
The Korean war was actually a draw. Basically the war went like this: North Korea (communist) invaded South Korea (democratic) and almost won so the US came in to help South Korea Then the US and South Korea then almost won the war so China interceeded on behalf of North Korea and drove the US and South Korea back to the 38th parellel. There the war stalled out for awhile and eventually a peace treaty… Read More
No. There are still social and political issues between north Korea and south Korea(and pretty much the rest of the world too)
There are still ice bergs trapped around the coast == == KOrea is divided into two countries; one comunist (north) and one democratic (south)
