There are two parts of this question. The first is why the term "Republic" is involved in the title and the second is why the word "South" is not in the title. "Republic" is part of the name since South Korea has a republican form of government, with a legislature and presidency.

The Korean war happened because North Korea wanted South Korea to be combined with them but they haded to be under a communist government , but South Korea doesn't want to be under a communist government so they refuses.

South Korea is democratic. It has a president, Lee Myung Bak. North Korea had a dictator, Kim Jong Il, but he died.
They are run by two different types of government, and that of South Korea feels threatened by that of the North for that reason.
Both North and South Korea have Presidents, but the leadership in North Korea is dynastic.
When South Korea became independent, the government was a Western-aligned autocracy. While South Korea was officially a democracy, there was no rule of law and the "Presidents" wielded levels of power similar to any other dictator. It was only in 1986 that South Korea became a liberal democracy. Since 1986, there have been a number of elections in South Korea, but no major substantive changes in the government.
