Who had control of Korea before it was split?
After Korea became independent after Japan in 1945, Korea didn't have unified government. US military controlled South and USSR controlled North.
The current flag of South Korea was the original flag of Korea. It was designed over 60 years before the two Koreas separated.
The capital was Seoul - which is the capital of South Korea today. As you might know, N.Korea's capital now is PyeongYang
Korea, like any other countries, faced countless wars throughout history. Korea has a history of 5000 years and no country's history is without wars.

Yes. The Russians and Americans divided it at the end of World War 2.
Korea was split into North and South Korea after World War 2 in 1945. Now North Korea is a communist country ruled by Kim Jong Un and South Korea is a free republic lead by President Park Geun-hye.
The spoils of war cannot be divided until the war is over. Korea was the property of Japan; just as America was the property of Great Britain in 1775.
If the ridiculous fantasies regarding the Illuminati are to be believed, they have already. Rather, they pull the strings of those who control North Korea and every other government of the world. Can't have it both ways. Either they exist and control everything, or they do not exist and the lunatic son of a lunatic controls North Korea.
No. North Korea and South Korea were united until 1948. After then Korea was split in to these two parts.
In 1950 the Korea Peninsula was divided between a Soviet-backed government in the north and an American-backed government in the south. The division of Korea into two halves had come at the end of World War II. In August of 1945 the Soviet Union invaded Korea, which had been under Japan's control since 1910.

It was called Gojoseon until 1897 when it became Korea. It was under Japanese rule from 1910 to 1945 and split into North and South Korea in 1948. No, Gojoseon was founded in 2333 BC and lasted until 108 BC. Then came the Proto-Three Kingdoms era, then the Three Kingdoms, then Unified Silla & Balhae, then was split into 3 again, then came GORYEO (where the present day English name Korea comes from), then Joseon… Read More

Korea was already under Japan's control before the Russian-Japanese War of 1904-1905, and it stayed that way until the end or World War Two in August 1945. Korea was seized from China by Japan in 1894.

Korea created its present day boundaries during the Kingdom of Joseon (1392-1897). However, Korea is currently split into North and South Korea, and many do not even refer to it as a country anymore.
Korea was divided between North Korea under Soviet Control, and South Korea under American Control.
Korea was individual country. No one colonized or ruled Korea before Japan.
Before the Korean War it was a strait line on the 38th parallel, however after the war was over the border was made on what was about the location of the front lines that the troops where at. That is why after the war the line looks more crooked then the border before the war.
Kwon Song Ho is the Minister of State Construction Control for North Korea.
Why isn't Vietnam and Korea called Vietnams and Koreas when America is called Americas. When they all are split up into a north and a south part?
IMHO.. Its because both Korea and Vietnam have a long history of being one united country before being split into two (the same reason why nobody called Ireland the Ireland's just because its split into the north and the republic). In contrast the Americas have never been one unified country and have a wide range of cultures, ethnic groups and nation states in them.
The US had a direct occupation of southern Korea between 1945 (when Japan surrendered and withdrew from Korea) until 1948 (when the Republic of Korea a.k.a. South Korea declared independence). The US has consistently assisted the Republic of Korea with its military problems, but has not exerted direct control or clandestine control, such as the US has in many Latin American countries. The Democratic Republic of Korea a.k.a. North Korea has never been under US… Read More
