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.

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.
