...complex, shifting, and historic relations between these areas, as well as relations with other places such at the United Sates in more recent times, the history of Korea has been told in many ways and is still the subject of hot debate both inside and outside the Koreas. North and South Korea have different versions of the peninsula’s history, both of which differ in detail and perspective from histories written in China, Japan, Russia, and the USA. The following sections, which attempt to outline the history in a balanced way, are based on a variety of materials, including lectures attended in a special workshop on Korean culture at Korea University in the summer of 1997. Map of Korea The overall pattern of development in the history of the Korean peninsula is a process that begins with an unknown number of early tribal groups that populate the peninsula in prehistoric times, wandering out of Siberia and areas to the west. Over time, some of these groups form more complex societies that eventually result in early kingdoms that grow up on the peninsula; in some cases extending westwards into what is now Chinese territory. As time and events unfolded, these kingdoms were unified, though the borders and degree of unity have continued to change over time—down to today. Besides the obvious split between North and South Korea, cultural differences (including dialect, food, and local identity) exist between the various regions of the peninsula. In some cases these differences are......

North Korea and South Korea

...After the war between North Korea and South Korea the North stayed communist but the South went back to its natural state meaning that it was not communist. -- Well, North Korea and South Korea went to war in the late 40's or early 50's (before then, Korea was one whole country.). The economy and government are very different between the two countries. South Korea is a perfectly good country. They have cell phones and cars and internet and they're a democracy (things you probably take for granted if you live in the US or Canada or South Korea or pretty much any other free country). But in North Korea things are different. Kim Jong ll rules over North Korea. In North Korea, people are pretty much brainwashed from a young age that the ruler of the country is always right, no matter what, and there's nothing you can do about that. North Korea doesn't have internet, and even though there's a few buses there, there's no such thing as a traffic jam there. They just started allowing cell phones, only a few people have them. International calls and texts aren't allowed. North Korea is basically a country that's closed off from the rest of the world. It's very difficult to leave the country. You might not be able to leave without a good reason, and if you do get to leave you might not be able to come back. It's pretty hard to travel there too- you can't just hop on a plane and fly there. Of course people do escape from time to time- but most people don't even try, don't even......

North Korea Political Evaluation

...Will North Korea in due time undergo changes or experience implosions sooner or later ? Is a big changing or a revolution similar to the Arab Spring possible in North Korea? The answer from me and most scholars and intelligence analysts has been ‘‘NO’’ The Pyongyang regime’s stability in the aftermath of the events in the Middle East and North Africa is an ‘‘old question’’ that was answered in the 1990s when the DPRK (Democratic People’s Republic of Korea, North Korea) faced the most critical test of its life, and survived. The collapse of the Soviet Union, the drastic cuts in patron aid from China, and the onset of famine that killed hundreds of thousands all constituted the ultimate test of DPRK stability, and the regime staggered on through it all.(1) There are five potential variables that could bring the Arab Spring to North Korea’s doorstep: individual socio-economic development, rates of economic growth (rising expectations), demography (youthful population), the contagion effect, or regime type. Do we see the possibility for change in the DPRK from any of these? Not really. In the months since Kim Jong-un has been in power, most telling is the way he remains overshadowed by his late father and grandfather. Kim jong Un's a contrast to his introverted dad, Kim Jong Il. In power for more than a year, Kim is very much an extrovert who loves to appear in public, watch his beloved hoops and deliver speeches. "Much of his behavior may be political theater aimed at......

...2013). Indeed, why wouldn’t such a growth trajectory take on a supernatural descriptor? What’s more, in the 1960s few could have predicted such an ascent given that the Republic of Korea (ROK) lacked an abundance of natural resources, land mass or population size – frequently used indicators to forecast power potential (Organski 1968, 340). This has led researchers to question why South Korea was able to grow at such a remarkable pace, while other potential risers were not. For instance, Egypt, with a larger abundance of profitable natural resources, a larger land mass and nearly twice the population size, has had sluggish growth during that same time. Egypt’s GDP (OER) is US $255 billion; its unemployment is 12.5% or 130th in the world; and, its HDI ranking is 112th. Immanuel Wallerstein’s World System Analysis[2] provides a theoretical framework to consider such growth and development inequalities. He argues an essential organizing characteristic of the modern capitalist world economy is the division of labour. Wallerstein argues systemic power structures institutionalize structural divisions in labour and amplify core-periphery relations. This essay will consider the role of strong state machineries[3] for developmental growth in such a system. Through a comparative analysis of Egypt and South Korea, this essay will demonstrate that nationalistic state intervention is necessary for economic development[4]. Wallerstein’s focus is the analysis of the modern world economy,......

Introducing Bateel to South Korea

...south Korea is strong with 90% of respondents claiming to consume chocolate at least once a week Why Pastries? The dates are healthy in the first place especially for kids ,low in cost, high in nutrients and its not a seasonal product, it is available most of the year. Therefore it would be preferred for parents and adults to serve their kid and have themselves instead of any sweets and artificially persevered food. And this freshly and creative baked dates pastries will be ideal for banquets and weddings mainly for adult and old aged consumers though our studies made a conclusion that younger population does not consume dates as much as older population In the case of South Korea, they are foodies and interested in knowing all about which food to eat for what ails. They always like to have fresh, quality, organic ingredients in their diet. And many restaurants and cafes which operate there grow their own produce, and the Koreans are much keen to know country of origin and their recipe for a lot of foods. Since coffee is a big trend there our bateel cafe can enjoy a good market share since bateel serves high quality Arabic coffee, Arabic espresso which is a blend created in Santos, Brazil. Its sweet perfumed taste is complemented by the fruity flavours of Arabian Dijmah from Ethiopia, and the light acidity of Central American Arabica. Each of these beans is slow roasted separately, creating the delicate taste and round aroma of the Bateel blend. We hope they will love......

North Korea

...NORTH KOREA Nicholas Eastman There are a few different countries that, in my opinion, would be enjoyable to visit and study their culture. One country in particular seems to stick out to me. I have always been taught about democracy in school, as well as other government styles, but have never first hand experienced another style of government. For this reason I chose North Korea, based on their centralized communist ways. I opinionate this to be an interesting way of life and would like to learn more about how people live under a communist government. From what I know about North Korea, rules seem strict and the people do not have the same rights as we do in the United States, which leaves me wondering how my life would be different, living under the same conditions as North Koreans. The geography of North Korea represents a peninsula, attached to Manchuria, China, and a small portion of the USSR (Geography). This 600 mile long peninsula is just above the 38th parallel, with a size of just above 45,000 square miles (Geo). With this, it makes the country itself smaller than the state of Pennsylvania. The make-up of the land in North Korea consists of several mountain ranges, lined up north to south, with small valleys in between each (Geo). This does not allow for many rural areas, leading to large cities populated by millions of people. The Yalu River forms a portion of the northern border with Manchuria (Geo). The mountains in the country prevent large farms,......

Korea

...Korea, called Hanguk (Korean: 한국; Hanja: 韓國) in South Korea and Joseon (Korean: 조선; Hanja: 朝鮮) in North Korea, is an East Asian territory that is divided into two distinct sovereign states, North Korea (aka, DPRK or Democratic People's Republic of Korea) and South Korea (aka, ROK or Republic of Korea). Located on the Korean Peninsula, Korea is bordered by China to the northwest and Russia to the northeast. It is separated from Japan to the east by the Korea Strait and the Sea of Japan (East Sea). The adoption of the Chinese writing system ("Hanja" in Korean) in the 2nd century BC and the introduction of Buddhism in the 4th century AD had profound effects on the Three Kingdoms of Korea, which was first united during the Silla (57 BC – AD 935) under the King Munmu. The united Silla fell to Goryeo in 935 at the end of the Later Three Kingdoms. Goryeo was a highly cultured state and created the Jikji in the 14th century. The invasions by the Mongolians in the 13th century, however, greatly weakened the nation, which was forced to become a tributary state. After the Mongol Empire's collapse, severe political strife followed. The Ming-allied Choseon emerged supreme in 1388. The first 200 years of Choseon were marked by relative peace and saw the creation of the Korean Hangul alphabet by King Sejong the Great in the 14th century and the increasing influence of Confucianism. During the later part of the dynasty, however, Korea's isolationist policy earned it the Western nickname......

...infrastructure, Seoul is a major corporate and leisure destination in Asia, offering tourists a diverse mix of cultural, entertainment, dining and shopping experiences. International visitor arrivals have been on the rise since 2003. The Korean wave and the government’s initiatives to boost tourism as well as the depreciation of the Won have encouraged visitation to Seoul. In 2012, international visitor arrivals to South Korea was recorded at 11.1 million, above the target of 10 million tourists. In 2013, visitor arrivals edged up to 12.2 million tourists, a 9.3% year-on-year increase, supported by the increasing number of tourists from Mainland China. Japanese visitors decreased dramatically by 21.9% compared to 2012 due to the weakening of the Yen and a strained political relationship. However, Japan and Mainland China still remained as the top two source markets to South Korea in 2013. There has been a significant increase in hotel development in the capital city of Seoul against a backdrop of demand growth and limited room supply in recent years. According to Korea Ministry of Culture, Sports and Tourism (KMCST), approximately 50 new hotel projects have been submitted which could potentially result in an additional 22,200 rooms by 2017. Several international branded full-service and limited-service hotels opened in the past few years and others have intentions to enter the Seoul market by 2015. Hotel trading performance in Seoul recorded year-on-year growth until 2012 but......

Korea Development

...States, South Korea has achieved a great success. After reading this article, I wondered how Korea was able to achieve “the miracle of Han(river)” as many scholars and experts claim and conducted a small research regarding to this issue. I believe South Korea was mostly developed by Park Jung Hee, the former president of Korea and the father of current president. Major cities in Korea were developed in his tenure. Park initiated the Five-Year Economic Development Plan and the New Village Movement(경제 5주년 계획, 새마을운동) to develop South Korea as an export leading country. He encouraged establishing new firms near the city and motivated the rural citizens to work in cities, which currently located majorly on Gyeong-gi area and Seoul. As a matter of fact, this is the time frame when the urban population exceeded to that of rural areas. People moved to Seoul and Gyeong-Gi area under his initiative in search of better living condition and to be satisfied with their economic needs. Moreover, he has developed a highway ranging from Busan to Seoul, a linkage between two major cities in Korea. Due to this highway, Korea was able to achieve a great success through rapid movement of ideas and products. Moreover he constructed eight more highways to strengthen the connection between cities and due to this highway Korea was able to reach Han River. Lastly, he was interested on the environment issue as well. Due to the massive logging under Japanese colonial rule, many cities in Korea were......

North Korea

...Rogue states under dictatorial rule threaten the fragile peace, which exists in our modern world. Constantly as a society Americans have always fought against these said foes. However all too often we pass a blind eye to the humanity of the enemies’ civilian populations. For more often than not, those who live within these systems are chronically oppressed. The nation of North Korea is no exception, with “Bing-brother always watching.” The government in North Korea pervades all aspects of life. Hunger is a problem worldwide. However with a quarter of North Korea’s population (six million people) starving or malnourished, with nearly one million of those cases being children under the age of five years old, the situation is especially dire (Cullinane 3). Throughout history the term “famine” has referred to a shortage of food caused by uncontrollable circumstances. Modern famines are relatively nonexistent because international aid, globalization, and modern domestic responses are all able to provide a safety net for those in need of assistance. In reality, mass-starvations today are caused by government decisions and improper food distribution. The North Korean government controls food delivery through a Public Distribution System (PDS), on which 62 percent of the population is entirely reliant upon for monthly or biweekly rations (Haggard et al. 17). To put this dependency in perspective, by the end of the 1990’s the PDS could barely support six percent of the population......

...South Korea Essay Korea is known as the “Land of the Morning Calm.” This expression comes from the beginning of the modern history of Korea. Koryo means “high” and “clear.” This word symbolizes the clear blue sky of Korea. The beautiful nature of Korea is expressed through this ancient name. The beginning of Korean history started from 2333 B.C. The Korean peninsular adjoins China and Japan. Korea was conquered by Japan and divided into South and North Korea at the end of World War II. The Korean War caused devastating damage to Korea. However, it should be noticed that despite frequent foreign invasions, the Korean Peninsula has been under a single government while maintaining its political independence, culture and ethnic heritage. Not that long ago, South Korea was one of Asia’s economic success stories – one of the region’s hungry “tigers” looking around for new markets to conquer. Seoul, its capital, modernized in a very rapid amount of time to accommodate the needs of business travelers and has brought the country’s colorful traditions and trademark tranquility. The unique elements of culture The population of the Korean Peninsula, sharing a common language, ethnic identity, and culture, was one of the world’s most homogeneous. Although there were significant regional differences even within the relatively small land area of South Korea, neither the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea (North Korea) nor South Korea had significant non-Korean ethnic......

Korea Travelogue

...every calendar, unending shopping of winter clothes and on the making of shopping lists, those are the things that I used to do whenever I daydream and got excited for this trip. Furry boots, trench coat, cute earmuffs, cottony mittens and warm scarf, all of us dreamt of wearing those stuff. But how would that be possible for a weather like this here in the Philippines? That won’t seem cool in here. But finally, here comes the chance for us to be in fashionable winter clothes and experience the cold weather. Anyeong-haseyo Seoul, Korea! The class organizers brought us here with the theme, “1Seoul: A Blissful Wander to the Heart of Korea.” The trip was well organized with a proper itinerary of a 5 days stay in Seoul. It all started on the 1st day of March. I was really not in the mood to dress up for winter because it’s really hot outside. About 30 degrees was the temperature in the Philippines but I have to be prepared for the cold weather in Korea. Seeing my huge 18kgs luggage and a hand carry made me decide to go to the meeting place (Plaza Mayor) earlier than the call time. Upon arriving within the area, many parents were there to take my blockmates to the bus and bade their last goodbye hugs and kisses before leaving the country. It was night then, around 7:00 in the evening, we left UST and proceed to the airport. On the way to the airport, we prayed the Rosary to ask guidance and help us in making our trip safe.
