Why is Yellow Sea a misnomer?
Yellow Sea is a misnomer because it's not yellow but it's a sea.
The Yellow Sea is the name given to the northern part of the East China Sea, which is a marginal sea of the Pacific Ocean. It is located between mainland China and the Korean peninsula. Its name comes from the sand particles that color its water, originating from the Yellow River.Also, it is referred to only in South Korea as the West Sea.
