With Korea being a peninsula, it is alot easier for people to draw one line to divide the country. If Korea had been land locked, border lines would have to surround the country. The US has two borders: Canada and Mexico. North Korea has two borders: Red China and South Korea. South Korea only has one border to worry about. Canada has two borders: the US to it's south, and one border at it's northwest...the US state of Alaska.
Because there was a war between North and South Korea
The division of North and South Korea was the 38th Parallel before the war, during the war, and after the war.

the permanent division of the peninsula into North Korea and South Korea.
The US is not permitted to patrol North Korea, nor do they. The US military does however have military bases in south Korea as part of a treaty to protect them against a possible attack by North Korea.
NO. The division between North and South Korea is political, based on the Cold War divide between Communism, centered in North Korea and formerly supported by the Soviet Union, and Capitalist Dictatorship, centered in South Korea and supported by the United States. Because of the State Religion of Juche in North Korea and the growth of Evangelical Christianity in South Korea, there is increasingly becoming a religious division in the Korean peninsula, but this is an end-result of the division, not its cause.
It means North Korea is capable of becoming a powerful ally to China in any possible war.
World War 2. After Japan surrendered, North Korea was liberated by the USSR, and South Korea by the US. A few years later the Korean War was fought, and the previous division at the 38th Parallel was reaffirmed.
