What type of country is south Korea?
South Korea is a country located in Asia. It lies right of China and left of Japan. The original 'Korea' was divided into South and North Korea after the Korean War. A section lies between the two countries called the DMZ (demilitarized zone) where no weapons are allowed.
In South Korea, since the Korean War, there has been remarkable economic rises. It's economy went from disastrous to marvelous. Now, it has a lot of technology and its cities are well structured. Many things are going well in South Korea except for the constant rivalry with North Korea.
In North Korea, since the Korean War, there has been a big economic downfall. It's economy was terrible, much like South Korea's after that war. But instead of working together to improve it, the country failed to make an economic rise. Now, the cities are dirty and the people are hungry. The communism government isn't doing much help to the failing country either. North Korean people often try to sneak into China or South Korea, but many do not succeed. Either dying from starvation or from being shot by a North Korean soldier. North Korea is making many illegal nuclear weapons and the United States is trying to trade the nuclear weapons for help. They have recently agreed, but no one yet knows how this will do.
See, North Korea and South Korea are very different. North Korea is having an unsuccessful economic rise, while South Korea is known as the country with the fastest successful economic rise in the whole world. We can only hope that North Korea will fall in the footsteps of South Korea.
