    Then learn a little Korean History. It is curious as Korea, surrounded by giant nations, has had a hard time being independent. For example, inspired by the 'opening' of Japan, American merchants and missionaries tried to force open the ports of Korea in 1866. Their ship was destroyed, and the invaders killed. The USA retaliated with an invasion in June 1871. Two warships, and 1,000 marines and sailor departed Nagasaki and after a few battles and destroying 5 castles the US force withdrew because the Koreans refused to otherwise acknowledge them. Thus ended the largest US action in Asia before the Conquest of the Philippines in 1898. Later the last of the Joseon (aka Choson) kings depended upon the USA to protect Korea from conquest by Japan. We sold them out, and Japan instituted a 35 year horror. After WW II, the US insisted upon dividing Korea the nation into US and Soviet spheres. The Russians sponsored a man who has spent his life fighting the Japanese to rule 'North Korea' and the US backed a Christian who had spent his life in the USA, and had an American wife, to rule the South. The rest is history. North Korea is far more traumatized than Israel and far more self-obsessed. It is the heir to the tradition of the Hermit Kingdom, while the South has become a modern democracy in the last few decades.
